7.6. Conclusion

Conclusion

Aside from the potential rewards offered by Experiential Futures and Systems Gaming practitioners, I argue that there is broad value in the practice of interdisciplinary science-art practice. Collaborations between scientists and artists enrich the practice of both disciplines, and stimulate new potential areas of exploration and growth.

Australia has a long and extensive history of science-art practice, and many Australian practitioners have obtained international recognition for their work. However, comparison with the equivalent community in the UK highlights that there is room for Australia’s science-art community to significantly extend and expand.

I argue that there are ways in which the standard and scope of Australian science-art collaborations can be improved and strengthened without requiring major investment, through the adoption of best practice models for collaboration, and creative support from external funding bodies and partner organisations.
