Dr Anna Madeleine Raupach is a multi-disciplinary artist with a PhD in Media Arts from UNSW Art & Design (2014), and a lecturer at ANU School of Art and Design. She works with moving image, experimental drawing and mixed reality to create installations and audio-visual experiences that explore interactions between technology and the non-human world. She has had solo exhibitions in New York, Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Montreal and Bandung and has been awarded international residencies at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, through the Art Gallery of NSW (2018); Common Room Network Foundation, Indonesia, with Asialink Arts (2017); and the University of Southern California, supported by ArtsACT (2016). Her practice has involved interdisciplinary collaboration with scientists in the fields of astronomy (Bosscha Observatory, Indonesia), meteorology (HM&Co Lab, Ecole des Ponts, ParisTech), chemistry (University of Melbourne), and anatomy (ANU Medical School). 

Dr Brad Tucker is an Astrophysicist/Cosmologist at Mount Stromlo Observatory, Research School of Astronomy & Astrophysics (RSAA), ANU. He leads programs using the NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope and TESS to understand why and how stars blow up. Mount Stromlo Observatory is one of Canberra’s oldest sites, having been carrying out astronomical observations for over 100 years. Its history includes designing optical munitions during the Second World War, weathering two devastating bushfires, discovering 95 per cent of the Universe, and earning one Nobel Prize. It is now Australia’s premier centre for satellite assembly and also working on removing human space junk using lasers.
