About the event#

ANU is hosting a series of public events and an inaugural exhibition to launch the School of Cybernetics. Australian Cybernetic: a point through time will take place in Canberra over 10 days from 22 November until 2 December in the award-winning ANU Birch Building.

The exhibition is a highlight of the official launch of the School of Cybernetics. It features 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.

Birch, home of the School of Cybernetics, is a heritage-listed building whose renovation received multiple awards, celebrating its preservation, adaptation and forward-thinking sustainability practice at the 2022 ACT Architecture Awards.
