Where Science Meets Art
Skunk Control is comprised of a group of artists, educators, engineers and scientists from Victoria University. The group creates visual art installations designed to engage audiences in sensory infused processes and in the heightened feelings of excitement that define the process of discovery. Using science and engineering expertise, they weave mechatronics, electronics and alternative technologies into their installations to achieve environments which prompt audiences to venture with deep curiosity and contemplation of the art’s narrative. The group also produces outreach programs, which provides them an opportunity to explain to audiences the science and technology that informs and underpins their installations.
