Lab 2: Investigating the Bat / Human Problem
This Lab was conducted in Sydney in partnership with the UTS Participatory Design Conference and UTS. The lab examined the Bat-Human interface/relationship – in light of the forthcoming relocation of 22,000 vulnerable flying foxes from the Royal Botanical Gardens Sydney.
The Sydney Lab was a key part of a two-year long project called the REMNANT/EMERGENCY Artlab – supported by the Australia Council for the Arts InterArts Panel, in collaboration with UTS, QUT, The Edge, the Participatory Design Conference (PDC 2010) and many others.
