Art of Threatened Species Project
Mt Kaputar Snail and Slug Threatened Ecological Community
An art & science collaborative project working with a unique ecosystem in the mountaintop clouds where surprising creatures live!
In this partnership of art and science Glynn and Dalmazzo spend time experiencing roiling storms, gale force winds, hail, swirling mist and bright sunshine atop Mt Kaputar, capturing the overwhelming landscape in video, time-lapse, photo and audio field recordings.
Art of the Threatened Species is a collaboration between the Office of Environment & Heritage (OEH), Create NSW and Orana Arts as part of the NSW government’s Saving Our Species program. A touring exhibition will commence at Dubbo Regional Gallery, Western Plains Cultural Centre 2019-2020
Multimedia artist Anna Glynn, and scientist Peter Dalmazzo, together carry out international, interdisciplinary art and ecology projects. Outcomes of their recent collaborations include award winning short films, exhibitions, installations, online material and talks. For example, ‘Above and Below’ a moving image work which was a result of a collaborative residency undertaken in the Dry Tortugas National Park USA has been acquired by the Parliament House Art Collection, Canberra.
