Decommissioned electron microscopes find new life in Flinders art exhibition

By / 5th of August, 2014

A SUITE of electron microscopes have been saved from the scrapheap by Adelaide-based artists under the The Microscope Project moniker.

Part of the South Australian Living Artists Festival, The Microscope Project seeks to give new life and meaning to the history of the instruments that Flinders University decommissioned in 2012.

The exhibition is running at the Flinders University City Gallery from the 26th of July until the 21st of September, showcasing new work by five acclaimed South Australian artists: Nicholas Folland, Ian Gibbins, Deb Jones, Catherine Truman and Angela Valamanesh.
