A brand new exhibition touring Townsville, Cairns and Mackay, launches at JCU’s eMerge Gallery in Townsville on Friday, February 19, 2016.

Collaboratively developed between scientists and artists, Emergence brings together the shared scientific and artistic processes by following methods of observation, experimentation, visualisation and objectivity.

By combining the curiosity, inquiry and knowledge that exists in both disciplines, artists, scientists and students have transcended existing boundaries to create new artworks and present new understandings.
