Catharsis Installation


Catharsis was an interactive community art installation that has given the Armidale community an opportunity to shred its collective negative thoughts and contribute to the creation of a positive community art work.

Smart Tree

Science and Art came together when members of the Catalyst Club had an opportunity get creative by working on the construction of a sculptural tree at the New England Regional Art Museum under the guidance of artists Jonathon Larsen and Benjamin Thorn. Movement sensors triggered real and imagined tree sounds inside the trunk of the tree. They also spent some time learning about trees with Botanist David Carr.

Little Things that Run the World!

The giant sculptural ants’ nest was created in the foyer of the New England Regional Art Museum from 16 August to 19 October, 2015. The nest was made of cardboard and paper pulp. The audience was invited to create ants, larvae or other life stages and put them in tunnels and chambers to grow the colony. Battery powered ants lived in the nest and while animated laser projected ants floated over the surface. The North Western Regional Science Hub presented this as “Science Meets Art” event at NERAM to celebrate National Science Week (and beyond) – introducing children to the School of Ants Project through an interactive and creative experience exploring the life of ants.
