    Abstract

    Ericas work is concerned with how science and technology have changed and challenged our understanding of being in the world. Her work is a metaphor for visualizing the invisible and reflects aspects of scientific endeavors such as microscopy and nanotechnology. While Ericas practice is founded on traditional printmaking techniques, her work evolved in the 1990s by combining the use of photographic screen printing and emerging digital technologies. Her interest in new technologies has lead her to explore frontier scientific visualisation programs and she is currently experimenting with 3D Microcomputed Tomography X-ray to create digital projection installations of germinating seeds. Ericas residency in London gives her a fantastic opportunity to develop this work, and visit historic collections of early Microscopy data, such as Robert Hookes seminal publication Micrographia (1665). This October, Bargehouse on Londons South Bank will play host to Time & Vision, an exhibition featuring work by 15 Australian artists who have participated in residencies in the UKs capital over the last 20 years. Many of the artists will be premiering work at the show which will include film, photography, sculpture, painting, performance, installations and site-specific work. London is a truly international city and this is reflected in the spread of artists living, studying and working here. Australian artists have contributed to this rich diversity through showing with London galleries, collaborating with London-based artists and in some cases moving their practice to London. Time & Vision seeks to reflect this fluid new reality by providing an opportunity to showcase Australian talent that is operating successfully beyond it.
