Building on his successful Arts residency at CSIRO, experimental media artist, Christopher Henschke, invites you to experience his temporary installation, Synthesism.

Artist Chris Henschke has undertaken an ANAT Synapse residency at CSIRO, collaborating with chemists who work with Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs).

MOFs are a novel class of programmable molecules with unique and complex surface structures. Henschke experimented with the nature of chemical synthesis, and how this could be manifested using the MOF chemicals directly.

Site-specific experiments which synthesize audio-visual MOF phenomena will be presented at the CSIRO Australian Manufacturing and Materials Precinct in Clayton.
