This 34 page book was created as part of the artist's Still Lives – A beautiful science
project. The book visually represents scientific data such as HyLogger Spectral imaging and petrographic imaging from one geological core sample from the Northern Territory Core Library. This scientific information in the form of geological information, such as the type of rock and its location in drill hole coordinates, takes place of what would normally be listed as the medium of the artwork, acrylic on board for example. In this work, the scientific information of a single core sample is used to describe its visual representation. This strategy is employed as a way of communicating that the science is in the detail, and the detail is the artwork. A 1mm slither of the core sample that the data in the book relates to is embedded in the inside back cover. Warning – Facts
is one of 51 works selected as finalists in the 2021 Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award. Printed by Momento.
