Australian Cybernetic: a point through time was held in Canberra over 15 days, originally from 22 November until 2 December only but due to high demand was extended to 7 December, in the award-winning ANU Birch Building.

The exhibition featured contemporary works by the School’s artists-in-residence and collaborators, and significant works from the historic exhibitions Cybernetic Serendipity (London, 1968) and Australia 75 (Canberra, 1975). These two pivotal cybernetic exhibitions featured digital music, light, poetry, and sculpture—all created with and through computers—to start new public conversations and imagine new futures.

Close to a thousand people attended the event series and visited the exhibition.

The exhibition was open to the public and culminated with an official School launch on 29 November. This was followed by a full day of exhibition tours, cybernetic panel discussions, interactive experiences and networking and collaboration opportunities.
