The StelrScope, ‘StellrLumé Domes’ are now in the permanent collection at the CSIRO Discovery Centre. The image shows an image of bread projected inside the dome.
A collection of StellrScope Artworks, ‘HotSeeds’ are now on show and in the permanent collection of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).
Here is a preview reminder of some of the artworks. A catalogue of the artworks is available – here.
Please contact Stellrscope if you are interested in any of the artwork.
Video of the StellrLumé Domes at Questacon, StellrScope Exhibition.
The StellrLumé Domes installation, StellrScope, uses Spatial Augmented Reality (SAR) techniques to bring computer graphics into the human-scale physical environment. In order to facilitate interaction between the graphics and visitors, overhead depth cameras are used that sense red, green and blue as well as distance for every pixel. Custom software then extracts the human form, such as hands, over the top of the projection surface. Elements of the digital content are selected based on where ‘virtual shadows’ land. The audience must become active participants in order to experience the entire narrative.
The StellrLumé Domes are part of the ‘StellrScope’ Centenary of Canberra Science Art Commission and celebrate the story of wheat innovation over 100 years. The focus of these research was undertaken at CSIRO who were the Science Art Commission host, resident at the Future Food Flagship and Computational Informatics.

Image celebrates the legacy of wheat experimentalist William Farrer and the innovative contribution of the Food Futures Flagship / Plant Industry of CSIRO.
This image, ‘Farrer Variety’ shows grain grown to plant through the pages of William Farrer’s notes. The wheat is a 3D model and modern rendering of a new strain of wheat… linking a 100 years of excellence in cross-breeding and wheat quality.

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.

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.
