connACTivity captures the unique landscapes of inland southeast Australia with innovative digital imaging techniques. During the ArtsACT Online artist in Industry residency in 2002, artist Megan Jones documented images of catchment country using Quicktime cubicVR photography to develop interactive 360 degree panoramic environments and created an online simulation of the rivers and engineered structures designed to manipulate water flow in Canberra.The artwork focuses on presenting a sample of sites used by scientists for research into the health of the Cotter, Murrumbidgee and Molonglo Rivers in the ACT. During the project collaboration with CRC for Freshwater Ecology researchers, the word "connectivity" inspired the artist as the title to the artwork, a word that has multiple meanings across the arts, science and online industries.
