Artists - graduates, staff and senior students of the Dunedin School of Art, as well as other artists associated with the School or living in the greater Dunedin area - over the last eight months have participated in the latest Science Series Art Project, entitled Art and Space, supported by the Dunedin School of Art, the University of Otago and the Otago Museum, following the very successful Art and Neuroscience, Art and Anatomy and Art and Light Projects in the previous three years.

Artists have been working with research scientists from the University of Otago to develop visual material relating to concepts of space that stem from their creative exchange of ideas. ‘Space’ has been interpreted in a broad context, from the space left in the brain after cerebral damage to the gravitational waves of the cosmos. The resulting artworks will be exhibited in the H.D. Skinner Annexe of the Otago Museum from 16 September until 2 October 2016 and will range from paintings to sculpture, and from weaving to aural sensations.

The Project is in support of The Perpetual Guardian Planetarium at the Otago Museum, which opened on 5 December 2015 and is the only 3D planetarium experience in the southern hemisphere.

The Project has been organised by Dr Ruth Napper, Dept. of Anatomy, University of Otago, and Peter Stupples, Dunedin School of Art. It is supported by Professor David Hutchinson, Director of the Dodd-Walls Centre for Photonic and Quantum Technologies, and Dr Ian Griffin, Director of the Otago Museum, as well as with funding from Creative New Zealand/DCC Creative Communities Scheme.
