2018 Synapse Residency Program

Synapse, an initiative of the Australia Council for the Arts and ANAT, supports collaborations between artists and scientists

The following Australian artists were awarded Synapse residencies in 2018:

Joanne Cannon + David Sly, Swinburne University

Musician and sound artist Joanne Cannon will work alongside Dr David Sly at Swinburne University’s Clinical Technologies Laboratory to construct and evaluate a physical holophonic audio system, drawing on recent software modelling, that will enable intimate and highly articulated localisation of sound sources and, potentially, real-time interaction during live performance.

Natalie Alima + Jon McCormack, Monash University

Architectural artist, Natalie Alima, and Monash University’s SensiLab Director, Professor Jon McCormack, will explore ways of controlling and orchestrating biological materials and organic chemistry, using robotic intervention, algorithmic design and advanced digital fabrication, in order to advance the potential for living and breathing inhabitable designs.
