Robyn Archer, Creative Director of the Centenary of Canberra, has first viewing of the StellrLume Domes (StellrScope Science Art Commission) with artist, Eleanor Gates-Stuart at Questacon.

The interactive domes respond to hands held over the dome to reveal a secondary visual narrative of the wheat story. The image  on this StellrLume Dome shows 3D visualisation and Micro CT scanning of bread revealing the air hole structure in bread and documenatary footage of CSIRO wheat fields.

Other content is drawn from archives from the National Library of Australia, National Film & Sound Archive, the Farrer Trust, CSIRO and artworks.

Photographs from the StellrScope Launch are on the Centenary 100 Website: http://www.canberra100.com.au/news-and-media/image-galleries/
