The Experimenta Studio Sessions is a new series of digital stories designed to provide a unique insight into the studio life and creative practice of a selection of Australian artists. Presenting projects and perspectives on how artists are working with technology, it is an opportunity for our arts community to connect and communicate, sharing their experiences on the diverse practice that is ‘media art’.
Matthew Sleeth’s ‘A Drone Opera’ is a poetic exploration of the reality of constant surveillance and our love affair with technology. This five-year project navigates diverse presentation conventions and audiences, with this next iteration delving into the virtual environment of the Mozilla Hub platform, presented as part of Ars Electronica’s 2020 Festival program.

A Galaxy of Suns is a spectacular 32-part choir performance that ‘sings’ the stars as they rise and set over 360˚ of the horizon. Tracking the Earth’s motions through space, the work documents in real-time the audience’s precise position in relation to the stars, sonifying stellar data in a unique celebration of the majesty and beauty of the cosmos. Featuring award winning local choir, Oriana Choir.
