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.

Images, ‘Under the hood’ by Eleanor Gates-Stuart – Inspired by ‘Workspace’ CSIRO
This series of images were created having experienced Workspace image analysis capability especially with plant industry… seeds and roots.
The ‘Workspace’ is a framework in which you can construct workflows, user interfaces and complete applications quickly and easily. It also has visualisation capabilities for two-dimensional (2D) plotting and for three-dimensional (3D) models. It is designed to facilitate collaboration between groups and individuals and to be easy to extend.

Building a series of images based on the wheat spike and its enduring beauty
In celebration of the wheat industry and its contribution to the Australian economy, the Royal Australian Mint issued the release of the 2012 wheat sheaf dollar coin design that is available as a visitor press, take home a coin from Canberra.
Statement on the One Dollar Coin Cover:
During the first half of the 20th Century, Australian coin designs reflected the nation’s burgeoning independence, which developed in parallel with successes in agriculture and primary industry. Australia’s current strong position in the global market was founded in the paddocks and plantations of generations past.
Australia’s first $2 bank note featured William Farrer in celebration of his outstanding wheat experimentalism and contribution to Australia’s food future.
