Wall of Fame
The Department of Biological Sciences at Macquarie University approached RGC to develop a new 'Wall of Fame' graphic window display to highlight the breadth and diversity of research disciplines represented in the department, present their current research programs and promote the work of several notable scientists who have contributed to the history and development of Biological research at Macquarie University.
When complete this series of window displays would allow staff, undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as the public to see the wide range of research undertaken both past and present by the department.
In the first stage of this project we interviewed several Macquarie scientists and delved through a wide range of research images. We then edited down our selected material to create a series of short stories with eye catching integrated images to form a series of 6 artworks that would become the display panels.
The display panels were installed on windows between undergraduate teaching labs. Each panel was printed on 'clear focus' see-through perforated vinyl film allowing light to pass through each window graphic.
The final 'walk through' sequence showcases the departments integrated research and teaching capabilities, linking the structure and function and processes that influence the evolution and ecology of organisms, using models ranging from microbes through to fungi, plants and animals.
