Exploring the creative potential of Antarctic Research

Wed 17 Apr 2024 5:00 pm
Studio Theatre

This conversation considers how the creative process can be informed and shaped by extant research and field work, specifically under the lens of Antarctic research.

With the opera Antarctica being developed originally through connecting composer Mary Finsterer and Librettist Tom Wright with researchers and scientists at IMAS in 2019, to the sonic and visual installation of Magnetic Quite Zone being informed by creative residencies in Antarctica, the convergence of scientific and creative practice is not only an increasing opportunity to explore unknown and untouched landscapes, but engage with the significant and increasingly important ecological, oceanic and meteorological knowledge that is generated through research.
