The following videos are exemplars of creative works of non-fiction using synchrotron radiation and are the result of a synergistic art-science collaboration initiated by the artist, AK Milroy. They feature palaeo-botanical type specimens from the Queensland Museum’s fossil collection and were scanned at the Imaging and Medical Beamline (IMBL) at ANSTO’s Australian Synchrotron, in Melbourne. This is the first time the delicate internal structures of permineralised (stone) specimens have ever been ‘seen’. In addition to providing beautiful visual data, the information is being used to aid in classification and to build a picture of an ancient Cenozoic rainforest that existed some thirty million years ago, in Capella, central Queensland.
