Spinning a Yarn with Sisyphus at the National Science Week '99Where celebrations court the senses of the public, artists are never far away, and if they are involved in research themselves... the National Science Week becomes the arena for celebrating the bubbling difference between artistic and scientific research.
PIGVISION offers the Australian public a glance into its research project "Spinning a Yarn with Sisyphus" on Sunday, 9th of May 1999, at the Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies (CERES) in East Brunswick VIC. The National Science Week event is a collaborative art project, inviting children and adults alike.
Please come along with your friends and family. Encounter the mysterious figure Sisyphus, and roll a large wooden sphere, hiding a video camera inside, through the gardens of CERES. We will show you the video recordings and super 8 film clips at the stables, and tell you how curious farm animals can be.
