Natural History Illustration Research
The Natural History Illustration staff and research students constantly strive towards advancing the theory and practice involved in the documentation and visual recording of the natural world.
The trans-disciplinary nature of Natural History Illustration means that research may occur across a myriad of subject areas including archaeology, anatomy, botany, and literature.
Some recent research by staff and research students include:
- Visualising the Dreamtime - bringing the Dreamtime alive through words and pictures
- Exploring connections within and beyond the biblical manuscripts of the five Jewish Festival Scrolls – illuminating them using Australian wildlife motifs
- Adapting advanced manufacturing technology used in engineering for use by artists producing sculpture
- Is there method in the madness? The development of an innovative fieldwork methodology that can be applied to contemporary natural history illustration
