The first settlers are thought to have arrived around 50,000 years ago. This would have most likely been at a time when the sea levels were low, the land was more humid and animals larger. Although much of Australia became populated, the central dry areas didn't attract settlers until around 25,000 years ago. The population grew proportionately quicker around 10,000 years ago as the climate improved. At the time of British settlement at Sydney Cove it is estimated that 300,000 aboriginal people, speaking around 250 languages inhabited Australia. On arrival, finding no obvious political structure, the Europeans took the land as their own.

Science assists us to understand the world. Art assists us to understand ourselves. The two forms of expression have a common foundation in creative exploration, interrogation, research, development, and documentation. In this story we look at where science becomes art, where art comments on and utilizes science, and at how scientific processes have changed over the years, often becoming increasingly specialized.
