How does your work contribute to Seeing Science Differently?

In 2010 I joined a marine science expedition to the remote Kimberley aboard the Olivia J. Several weeks on a small vessel crammed with scientists and artists revealed just how differently we all saw the world. What we chose to focus upon defined us and our experience of the vast, wild surroundings.
Curiosity, lateral thinking and discovery are the foundations to great science and art. However often many scientists tend to see things in the same frame and possible approach challenges with the same scientific methodology. Working with artists challenged their view of a subject beyond facts and science.
The Secrets of The Kimberley attempts to expose the extremes of how scientists and artists can view the world. One is clearly about understanding and facts, the other imagination and fantasy.  Yet both play an important role in human experience and fulfilment in our lives.
I believe working closely with artists, invites scientists to see the world from a different perspective, perhaps allowing the  discovery of other truths.
