Through University of Canberra’s Angelina Russo’s enthusiasm and energy an ARC application is lodged for a mobile fab lab to tour various regional Australian locations. Although we won’t learn the fate of the application until November 2015, representatives from many of the participating organisations accepted the University’s generous invitation to invest two days in exploring the project’s territory at the intersection between Art and Science. A highlight for me was Ross Gibson’s presentations, which amongst other things, encouraged us to think about relationships between the digitally materialised and narrative.
Here is my Storify from day 2.
For day 1, check out Lynda Kelly here.

What is an authentic object? Contemporary manufacturing processes including digital scanning and 3D printing invigorate a new dimension to museological conversations about authenticity.
