How are our Great Barrier Reef encounters shaped by media and technology? Dr Celmara Pocock will dive into the hyperreal presentation of our tropical national treasure.

Hosted by Research and Innovation Division.

This talk by Dr Celmara Pockock explores how human encounters shaped by media and technology distance visitors from the unique Great Barrier Reef environment. Despite unprecedented access to the Reef, tourists today are more likely to experience it through secondary visual representation such as photographs and films.

These enhanced and brilliant images create a hyper-reality in which the copies appear more wondrous than the real thing.

A reception in the USQ Arts Gallery will follow the recital – refreshments will be served.
