Find out more about the Orange Cowra Cabonne Science Hub workshops for 2023/24 HERE

Learn new technologies applied to creative practice through a mentored day of field walks and AI [Artificial Intelligence] + AR [Augmented reality] technology training with educator and artist Matt O’Brien. Matt is an artist, educator and interprets AI+ AR to image future landscapes of astonishing beauty in natural environments.  The Future Landscapes workshop is framed by the current discourse of the Anthropocene. Matt states ‘We have become accustomed to change within our environs, and if we are open we can see these changes in minute detail. Digital technologies allow us to capture and reveal some of these details. The digital process of AI and AR can reveal awareness on how much we don’t understand or do not see, once described digitally it reveals an alternate reality that brings back the focus on what we really know and see in our environs. Sometimes the results are quite strange and beautiful but also reveals a frailty of the environs and our perception” Matt O’Brien 2023.


Matt is a multidisciplinary artist and educator living and working in the Northern Rivers he maps landscapes using diverse methodologies relevant to the Anthropocene, and is currently experimenting with AI and AR mapping.
