Sometimes physics fascinates just because of its aesthetics. It could be the artistic appeal of an experimental image, a beautiful object used in doing physics, a pleasing curve that relates parameters… We see possibilities for art in the artefacts of physics – in bits of lab equipment, experimental results, and theoretical models. A scientist with...

'Carbon copies' - fossil inspired wearable art 3D printed in new materail
Article
A new fossil flora from central Queensland, of late Eocene or early Oligocene age, has yielded a diverse assemblage of flowering plants and ferns, including the first evidence of horsetails (Equisetum L.) from the Cenozoic of Australia. The fossils assigned to Equisetum are based on a stem fragment, 2–3mm in diameter, and spreading leaf sheath and...
Chapter
The doctoral journey often requires a revision of previously held paradigms—ontological, epistemological, methodological, axiological and rhetorical—as new thought creates new knowledge. A PhD is, after all, a Doctor of Philosophy, and thus requires deep sustained cogitation to contribute to knowledge. Such deep thinking requires dedicated time; th...

Epistêmê, technê & poïesis - visualisations of evolution and extinction in Queensland flora. Experimental intra-disciplinary praxis forms the basis for this research, specifically bridging the domains of art-science and utilising innovative imaging technologies. The research addresses the following questions: In what ways, if any, can the outcome...
Article
The internal morphology and anatomy of silicified fruits of Fontainocarpa were studied using traditional thin sectioning techniques, SEM and synchrotron computed tomographic (CT) imaging and animations, to enable comparative analyses with extant, indehiscent-fruited genera in the Euphorbiaceae including Fontainea, Aleurites and Hylandia from Austra...

A recent successful trial using the Imaging and Medical (IMBL) at the Melbourne Synchrotron has revealed the internal anatomy and morphology of rare, three-dimensionally preserved, 30 million year old silicified fruits from Capella, in Central Queensland. These IMBL scans are the first application of this technique to the study of this kind of mate...

n 2014, the professional society of physicists in Australia themed their national conference “The Art of Physics” (Canberra, 7-11 December, 2014). The aim was to “stimulate diverse and creative participation in the Congress” and delegates were encouraged to be “adventurous” (“Australian Institute of Physics”). Wegener, a physicist with a deep inter...
