Ingenious and Fearless Companions
Thursday 31 March 18:00 – 20:00pm
Join us to celebrate the opening of this extraordinary exhibition which explores a quest to find microscopic life in the stratosphere.
BOM is delighted to present the first ever exhibition by the High Altitude Bioprospecting (HAB) team, which includes biochemist Melissa Grant, lab robotics scientist Oliver de Peyer, mathematician Paul Shepherd and artists Anna Dumitriu, Kira O’ Reilly and Alex May.
The exhibition brings together video-mapped archive films, environmental samples and sculpturally altered relics from test flights with NASA Ames and civilian space authority the Rocket Mavericks, exploring the adventure of curiosity-driven research through a unique collaboration.
There will even be space ice cream to enjoy!
