  • Chris Henschke is a practicing artist and lecturer in Media & Communication at RMIT University, who has been working with digital media since the late Twentieth Century. His main area of practice is in collaborative art / science experiments. He has worked with Australian Synchrotron since 2005, through a variety of official and unofficial art residencies, commissions, exhibitions, and curatorial projects. His ongoing relationships with synchrotron scientists have allowed him to take several visits to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, and organise the Colliding Ideas – art, society and physics symposium in July 2012, which was a satellite event of the 36th International Conference of High Energy Physics where the discovery of the Higgs Boson was announced. Currently he is a PhD candidate at Monash University, where he is undertaking practice-led research into methodological and epistemological relationships between theory and practice within and across the disciplines of media art and particle physics.
