Maintenance of social solidarity is one in a series of projects where et al. looks at mind control in its various manifestations; social, medical, industrial and cultural. Curator Bryony Nainby. Contemporary Art Services Tasmania is assisted by the Australia Council, the Federal Government’s arts funding and advisory body, and through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts.CAST is supported by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments. Bryony Nainby An installation by et al is an experiential encounter with an excess of reality, of aspects of human history and knowledge. The blurring of content – the handwritten texts and scrawled notes, the tables and electrical equipment, the computer programming, the sound mixes, the philosophical speculations, political speeches and fan...
Site-specific installation linking art, technology, politcal ideologies, scientific theories, fringe religious practices and behavious modification. IMA receives major funding from Arts Queensland and the Australia Council and Artspace receives major funding from Creative New Zealand.
Integration of computing, multi-media and internet methods and techniques into contemporary art practice, will continue to be a focus in the current project. Using interactive and multi-media techniques in art disciplines effectively involves understanding and experimenting with the integration and interfacing of, computer generated material into the installation. The computer can act as a technical programmable interface either in the local scene of audio/visual disjunction or across a computer-based net installation to allow interaction that is not necessarily tied to specifics of time or place. Disjunction of object and reader happens across not only layered meanings and intentions but across disparate media and dislocated net-based media, further challenging the viewer/object-site interchange. Voices or positions are placed in oppo...
This paper was presented at the UK Organic Research 2002 Conference of the Colloquium of Organic Researchers (COR). A review is presented of comparative studies of organic and conventional farming systems, with a special focus upon economic criteria. The different categories of comparison methodologies are critically reviewed. Conclusions are that classic experimentation has a valuable part to play but that more qualitative assessment can also be useful and should be encouraged. Careful allowance should be made for major background differences in management when comparing financial profitability. Longer term case studies, which try to monitor organic systems in their own right, should also be encouraged.
This paper outlines a study to integrate elements of cultural, thermal and mechanical control methods in the production of late maincrop drilled organic carrots. Agronomic and economic findings are discussed
This paper was presented at the UK Organic Research 2002 Conference of the Colloquium of Organic Researchers (COR). An Integrated Decision Support System (IDSS) is developed which synthesises current understanding of organic farming by means of a multiple objective framework incorporating GIS, biophysical models and socio-economic models of the farming goals. The IDSS uses a multitiered concept of a farming system as a collection of micro-enterprises at the field level, with individual resource endowments, objectives and activities. Farm-level decision drivers trickle down to affect the micro-level field enterprise selection. Biophysical models describe typical forage, cereal, root and legume output and a user-friendly interfaces permits easy access and output display via a GIS. A prototype of the IDSS framework, being developed as a p...
This poster reviews the use of case studies in studying farms converting to organic production. Particular reference is made to the 'Conversion to organic field vegetable production' project, which is making use of case studies. Case studies facilitate an in depth analysis of a farm during the conversion to organic production and enable researchers and farmers to gain a greater understanding of the complex changes that take place. Case studies also provide a valuable tool for disseminating the results
This report was presented at the UK Organic Research 2002 Conference. The soil organic matter (SOM) contents of organic and conventionally farmed soils were compared. Whilst the quantity of SOM was found to be similar with both systems, the quality of SOM differed in respect of higher amounts of N released by the organic soils under anaerobic incubation. This indicated a greater potential rate of mineralization and suggested that the inherent fertility of the organic soils had been improved
