Massive and MAGICal – ‘MAGICal Wheat’ by Eleanor Gates-Stuart in collaboration with Dr Sherry Mayo, CSIRO.
On-going StellrScope research on wheat structures and visualising the wheatear. Sherry produced a 3D micro-CT scan of a section of wheat and Drishti to render the data. MAGICal A is merged with the movie file – both image files are connected to 3D spatial data of wheat, its DNA and growth.
This movie file is a preview to the forthcoming, CSIRO informed science art works StellrScope at Questacon in August and at the CSIRO Discovery Centre.
This image, shown as a 2D image representation of a wheatear, is in fact, composed from a CT Scan and rendered through 3D software, Drishti and Maya.
The 3D images are to be used in artworks for the exhibition at Questacon – Maya version shown on eleanorgatestuart

WheatEar images created as part of on-going 3D scanning process to recreate Wheat Crop models. ’Wheatear3y’ is a reconstructed composition of plant structures to provide a sense of internal / external structure and beauty of the wheat plant.
Here are a series of three structures illustrating the surreal plant structures as developed for StellrScope Collection.
The three ‘Wheatear’ images create a stunning large scale installation / projection piece as in the uncanny rescaling of nature
Reference: Original wheat scan by Dr Chuong Nguyen.
Busy working on a new series of images. ‘Stems‘ is a detail section from one of the recent 3D images created around the William Farrer Field Books. Currently collecting more plant samples and preparing for high-res’ scans.

Results shown are low resolution images.
An interpretation of bioinformatical spatial data and image analysis, reconstructed as ‘MAGICal9′.
The context for this series is derived from the original two images, ‘MAGICal A’ and ‘MAGICal B’ – (Mapping germinating wheat grain into flowering spikes).
*1 – 9 is the simple numerical rule for mapping
Multiple image representing ‘Sequence of Nine’ … the visual reconstruction and test series in MAGICal.
MAGICal (re)Mix reflects the image of MAGICal A as an abstracted representation of its bioinformatical and scientific data … a visual remix of cross-breeding in wheat and chromosome characteristics.
MAGICal is a reference to:
CSIRO MAGIC - Multi-parent Advanced Generation Inter-Cross, allows the identification of genes controlling quantitative traits such as loaf volume, by crossing different combinations of multiple parents. The results of these crosses are plants that have a genome which is a mosaic of their multiple parents.
