StellrScope is a deep and intense scrutiny of the remarkable physical and biochemical traits of organisms in physical plant structures, namely wheat. Simplifying this complexity into stunning images of aesthetic analysis and graphical interface is a focus of the project.

Eleanor Gates-Stuart has been awarded the Centenary of Canberra, Science Art Commission, with residency as, Science Art Fellow, at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) through their Transformational Biology Capability Platform (TBCP).  She will be based at the CSIRO Mathematics, Informatics and Statistics (CMIS) Research Division supported by the specialist expertise of Dr David Lovell, Bioinformatics and Analytics Leader, and Dr Matthew Morell, Theme Leader, CSIRO Food Futures Flagship. 

StellrScope will be completed in 2013 and displayed at Questacon and the CSIRO Discovery Centre in Canberra. The Centenary Science Art Commission is jointly funded by the ACT Government and the Australian Government and is one of many projects taking place to mark the Centenary of Canberra in 2013.
