Experimenta Make Sense ‘A Hierarchy of Eddies’ by Scale Free Network (2017). Photo by Zaylee Saint James Turner.

Tracing Turbulence
with Scale Free Network

Thu 21 Jan 2021, 1PM – 2:30PM

Tracing Turbulence is an art-science conversation that brings together deep observation, drawing and the discussion of how turbulent patterns are formed.

Inspired by the patterns of movement within Scale Free Network’s sculptural-kinetic work A Hierarchy of Eddies, participants will observe and respond to what they see through a series of simple drawing exercises (no prior drawing experience necessary). As a group, participants will create a collaborative artwork, as well as make individual drawings.

For curious minds of all ages, this session will explore the story behind the eddies, swirls and whorls, experienced in this artwork and delve into the complexity and poetry of vorticity.

Make sure to book for this session as numbers are limited. To book, phone or email the gallery on Ph 03 5760 2619 or gallery@benalla.vic.gov.au.  All visitors must check-in via QR codes and are required to observe hygiene and physical distancing practices.

About the Artists


Scale Free Network is a Melbourne-based, art-science collaborative founded by conceptual artist Briony Barr and microbial ecologist Dr Gregory Crocetti.

Scale Free Network is a Melbourne-based, art-science collaborative founded by conceptual artist Briony Barr and microbial ecologist Dr Gregory Crocetti. Since 2007, SFN have developed their interdisciplinary methodology through workshops, participatory installations, exhibitions and publishing projects, created in collaboration with artists, scientists, writers and educators. SFN projects aim to visualise and imaginatively engage with the invisible majority (microbial communities, physical systems and forces beyond human perception), to question the human-scale lens through which we relate to the world.

SFN have presented their work in a diverse range of contexts nationally and internationally, including art galleries, museums, science institutions, festivals, conferences and schools. The list includes the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul; South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute; the National Gallery of Victoria; the Royal Institution of Australia; Gertrude Contemporary; A Centre for Everything; ArtPlay; Counihan Gallery; Ipswich Art Gallery; World Science Festival, Brisbane; OtherFilm Festival; the Environmental Health Clinic; and the International Symbiosis Society Congress.
