Micro macro

Families are invited to interact with microscopic images and create your own nature-inspired artwork in this art-science activity.

Facilitated by the Scale Free Network in collaboration with The Cube, this drop-in activity allows visitors to see up-close the environment where William Robinson painted. With photographs and micro-graphs to guide you, visitors can draw images of everything from cows to grey gums, rainbows to termite mounds, leaf veins to bacteria. Create your own art piece and add it to the large collaborative collage.

This artwork will evolve throughout the holiday program.

This activity is part of the QUT Winter Holiday Program.
