Unnatural Selection - New Media Art in Regional Australia

Fri Mar 17, 2006 00:00 - Wed Mar 08, 2006

Unnatural Selection

An exhibition of sculpture and installation driven and inspired by technology, re-creating and re-interpreting natural elements and environments.

Unnatural Selection challenges the crude capitalist mutation of Darwin's 'survival of the fittest' by creating a safe ecosystem for delicate technological hybrids to thrive. The works offer inspiration as well as insights into the mutualism of nature, the technological tools of our creation, and ourselves.

This is the first large scale new media art exhibition to take place at the Manning Regional Gallery, Taree (5 hours north of Sydney).
