dc.description Exhibition catalogue for 'Natural Digression', held at UTS Gallery from 6 March to 8 April 2011 en
dc.description.abstract Natural Digression brings together seven artists from a variety of disciplines, who all share an interest in the notions, tools and conventions of the rational sciences. The exhibition title plays upon a Eurocentric hierarchy of knowledge and mode of conceiving reality - the ‘objective’ scientific frame of reference at the front and centre of the Western understanding of the world. This polemic acts as a point of departure for the artists in Natural Digression as they make an epistemological migration to alternative interpretations, mock realities or whimsical outposts. Curated by Yolande Norris, Natural Digression debates the primacy of scientific rationality for describing the world. Through diverse materials and techniques the seven artists raise questions about codification and language, the impact of the built environment on human behaviour and gender dynamics in past scientific discoveries. en
