The competition invites artists to present their perspectives on natural science, with the judges saying Canberra artist Erica Seccombe’s Metamorphosis video captured the spirit of the prize, representing “a deep collaboration between scientific and aesthetic enquiry”. Hayley Lander, also of Canberra, won the emerging artist category with her work The great forgetting.

The gallery below includes a selection of the finalists’ works, on show at the museum until August 5.
