Art/Science Program

Cultural Precinct, South Bank

The Art/Science program is an evolution of World Science Festival Brisbane's popular Curiocity Brisbane - a celebration of visual arts, science, STEM and digital technology - featuring large-scale artworks throughout the Cultural Precinct from March 15-24,2024. These are just a few of the highlights: 

ADA - Cultural Forecourt, South Bank, 8:30am-9:30pm

Karina Smigla-Bobinski’s ‘post-digital drawing machine’ ADA is an interactive sculpture that invites engagement with one of the most primal forms of communication – mark making. However, this enormous floating orb is not simply a drawing tool, but a conceptual artwork situated at the intersection of art and computer science.

Drawing on Complexity: Experiment 9

Drawing on Complexity: Experiment 9 - Cultural Forecourt, South Bank, 9am-6:30pm

This immersive installation will evolve over the festival. Artist Briony Barr invites you to become an 'agent' and participate in this drawing system by applying colourful tape across 3D surfaces. All agents must first learn a simple algorithm before they may contribute freely.

Tectonic Resonance

Tectonic Resonance -  Pelican Ponds, Cultural Precinct, 8am-8pm

The 3D-printed sculpture and sound work explores parallels between ancient geological formations and new modes of fabrication. This complex and innovative form has been created with emerging technologies, including 3D printed sandstone processes and artificial intelligence (AI).

Ghost Nets

Ghost Nets of Pormpuraaw - Whale Mall, Queensland Museum, 8:30am-7:30 pm

Pormpuraaw Art and Culture Centre is a flourishing First Nations creative hub on the western coast of Queensland’s Cape York Peninsula. For a decade, the Pormpuraaw artist community has deftly crafted stunning sculptures out of salvaged fishing waste from the Gulf of Carpentaria including fishing line, nets and floats - known as  ‘ghost nets’.
