Deep Field by Tin&Ed

Deep Field is a new immersive art experience by celebrated Australian artists and creative technologists Tin Nguyen and Edward Cutting, aka Tin&Ed.

Using iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, participants anywhere in the world can co-create and connect in real time through their shared re-imaginings of the environment.

The experience begins with a guided tour of ArtScience Museum where participants are invited to design their own flora and fauna taking inspiration from the environment, the building itself and any artworks they might encounter. After dreaming up their fantastical plants, participants will sketch their designs on iPad Pro using Apple Pencil.

These sketches will be added to a global database filled with flora drawn by participants across the world in real time, co-creating a new ecosystem of plants to be revealed through the lens of Augmented Reality (AR). Participants will watch their artworks bloom into spectacular 3D plant structures around ArtScience Museum accompanied by a multichannel soundscape experience of forgotten and extinct species created by celebrated audio naturalist Martyn Stewart. Deep Field brings participants into a newly imagined, immersive landscape where they can fully engage in the sights and sounds of the natural world.

As part of the workshop, participants can expect to:

  • Learn and experience the possibilities of Augmented Reality (AR)
  • Reflect on their attitude towards our planet and nature
  • Exercise creativity and experiment with colours, shapes, and textures
  • Tour the environmental landscape and selected artworks in and around ArtScience Museum
  • Co-create with participants from across the globe

Previously exhibited at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney and the Getty Center in Los Angeles, ArtScience Museum is proud to host the Asian premiere of Deep Field.



Tin Nguyen and Ed Cutting are Australian artists and creative technologists based in New York.

They create playful installations and experiences that illuminate the borderless dimension between art and science, the physical and the digital, the human and the more than human. Their work is driven by a deep curiosity for the natural world and the intricate ways we are connected to it. They use art to envision the world through this lens of interconnectedness.
