Since the establishment of UWA’s dedicated art and science lab SymbioticA in 2000, there has been a growing interest in fostering connections across art and science. An increasing number of academic staff and HDR students are working across the nexus of art and science at major Australian Universities including UNSW, Curtin, QUT, Monash and UTAS. There has been an explosion of investment in organisations and public programs to further encourage interdisciplinary engagement – just think of the newly established Science Gallery franchise at Melbourne University. Outside the university sector, residency and funding opportunities such as the Australian Network for Art and Technology’s Synapse program have also helped increase the profile of, and interest in, art and science. Indeed, even bioart, once controversial and decidedly on the fringes, has gained notable acceptance in the contemporary art world, with a dedicated feature in the 2014 Artlink Magazine, Life in the Anthropocene.
