David Haines and Joyce Hinterding at ACMI
22 September 2011 – 29 January 2012

ACMI presents the world premiere of Star Voyager: Exploring Space on Screen, a major exhibition charting the history and future of space exploration as experienced through the moving image.

Public program: In partnership with the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, ACMI presents an exciting opportunity to be immersed in the worlds of space, science and art. Hear artists and curators from the Star Voyager exhibition speak about their work viewing the sun, then be guided to the Melbourne Observatory by an expert from the Astronomical Society of Victoria, who will conduct a demonstration of the photoheliograph and allow audience members to look at the sun.

Panellists include ACMI curators Emma McRae and Sarah Tutton, Darren Bellingham from the Astronomical Society and artists David Haines and Joyce Hinterding, whose work EarthStar, 2009 uses spectacular footage of the solar chromospheres, captured using a Hydrogen-Alpha telescope.
