A moment in time…….. Intriguing and fascinating world of early development, idylic and mysterious.


Visualisation Wheat in 3D

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

Thinking beyond the square… next series of sketches for proposed installation work, in collaboration with Chuong Nguyen, Matt Adcock and Dulitha Ranatunga.


Farrer Variety

Image, ‘Farrer Variety’ by Eleanor Gates-Stuart

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.

Surreal Plant Structures

Image, ‘Wheatear3y’ by Eleanor Gates-Stuart

 

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
