We look into artworks that take on non-human intelligences, robotics, screen culture, virtual reality, new digital platforms, health and medicine, data, community and storytelling, as well as speculations on the future possibilities of art. The Constellations focuses on collaborative practice, reciprocity and what motivates creative people across disciplines to work with each other towards shared goals.

    EP#12: 'The Soil' with Lucas Ihlein, Kim Williams and Simon Mattsson

    EP#12: 'The Soil' with Lucas Ihlein, Kim Williams and Simon Mattsson

    Fertilizer, sediment, and pesticide run-off from sugar cane farming are among the major causes of degradation to the Great Barrier Reef. Between 2015 and 2019, artists Lucas Ihlein and Kim Williams have been collaborating with local farmer Simon Mattsson to explore tactics for grass-roots cultural change to support regenerative farming practices within the cane farming community of Mackay, Queensland. In the final episode of the DLUX Constellations Podcast we hear about this innovative project that bridges the gap between land art, creative practice, contemporary commercial agriculture and community.

    EP#11: 'The Plants' with Cat Jones & Monica Gagliano

    EP#11: 'The Plants' with Cat Jones & Monica Gagliano

    This episode we’re talking with Cat Jones about her project Somatic Drifts, a one on one sensory experience exploring empathy and transgression. Somatic Drifts enables participants to experience the body of another entity through touch and illusion. What realm does the human exist within? How far can we drift? What can this drift enable us to change? During the project Jones worked with neuroscientists specializing in brain plasticity and chronic pain. The team recently published a new study that came about as a result of her findings.

    Joining her to talk about the crossovers of this project with vegetal philosophy and her own research in plant intelligence, will be evolutionary biologist, Dr Monica Gagliano, who Jones spent time with towards the beginning of the project.

    EP#10: 'The Atmosphere' with Joyce Hinterding & David Haines

    EP#10: 'The Atmosphere' with Joyce Hinterding & David Haines

    Sound Ship (Descender 1) is a custom-built spacecraft designed to drop a sound from the edge of space, 33,722 metres into the stratosphere, with a payload of aeolian harps, tracking devices and recording equipment designed to capture both audio and moving image.

    Its creators, David Haines and Joyce Hinterding, are our guests on this episode of The Constellations, talking about their work that incorporates sound art, performance, science, photography, computer game technology and more.

    EP #9: 'The Robot' with Mari Velonaki & Maurice Pagnucco

    Computers and machines are full of knowledge and information... but can they be intelligent?

    ‘Intelligence’ describes the brain’s ability to reason, learn, plan, deploy abstract reasoning, experience emotions and exercise self-awareness. Artist and researcher Mari Velonaki creates poetic human-machine interfaces exist within a broad field of AI research pursuing the creation of truly intelligent non-human objects.

    EP #8: 'The Smell' with Jo Burzynska & Anina Rich

    EP #8: 'The Smell' with Jo Burzynska & Anina Rich

    This episode we do a deep dive into the senses and talk to the artist/scientist team behind Osmic Resonance, an audio-olfactory project that sought to harness sympathetic vibrations between sounds and aromas. The work tapped into a phenomenon of sensory cross-over — how does smell effect our perceptions of sound? Working closely with the cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Anina Rich and her work on synaesthesia, artist Jo Burzynska created a multi-sensory chamber in which the aesthetic, scientific and therapeutic potential of sensory interactions were explored and experienced through intensifying and shifting, entwined sound-and aroma-scapes.

    EP#7: 'The Bees' with Nigel Helyer & Jon Drummond

    EP#7: 'The Bees' with Nigel Helyer & Jon Drummond

    This episode, we sit down with the artists behind the project: Oratorio for a Million Souls. Collaborating with thousands of bees, this large scale project created three ‘green' architectural structures, in the form of traditional bee ‘skeps’ in botanical gardens in Buitenpost (Fryslan) and Oldenburg and Emden (Germany). To generate empathy with the dire state of bees in the face of commercial farming, pesticides and global warming, these three ‘Oratorios’ contain Bumble Bee nests equipped with audio and data sensors that create a multi-channel realtime ‘opera’ audiences could participate in.
