Biomes ARS Electronica - In Keplers Gardens Festival X Biomes

Biomes is a collaboration between the University of Newcastle’s Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Education and Arts. The objective is to provide an engaging and immersive experience to empower the local community to take their own action andto see their region as a living, sustainable and diverse community.

Ars Electronica Newcastle Garden ‘Novocastrian 2050: Ecosystem Reboot’ isorganic to the Biomes exhibition, bringing an exciting international collaboration. Unique perspectives from Australia’s largest regional coastal community combined with the many flavours from across the global art-science community will inspire a new discourse about Newcastle’s future ecosystem.

The radical changes required to shift the entire exhibition online has created new research questions about how we sustain interactivity and community engagement when we can’t physically engage with one another.
