Laura Lovell-Anderson will be exhibiting work, Vaisseau, at LUMAS Gallery


Robotic Printing -- On a global scale, cross-disciplinary research to leverage the full potential of digital fabrication and applications of robotics are at the forefront of design. Design researchers and creative scholars are increasingly investigating integrated design and robotic control methods for applications in on-site digital fabrication and bespoke digital prefabrication, to reimagine the possibilities of interiors, architecture, and design.

Lumas Gallery, 159 Yorkville Avenue

Come see OCAD U Industrial Design Instructor, Laura Lovell-Anderson along with Jonathan Anderson on how Robotic fabrication strategically operates by deploying minimal material for maximal geometric definition and, as a medium, allows for the timely creation of precise and intricately crafted complex interior and exterior environments, as well as objects and surfaces. Building on the principles of computational craft, robotic fabrication seeks to build on recent advancements by examining the ways in which robotic arms have come to be seen as transcending their traditional role as performers of the monotonous tasks of mass manufacturing pipelines and instead be viewed as part of the toolset available for the production of crafted and unique work. These factors combined challenge analogue and low-tech design conventions to reconsider the entire design-to-production process, where the realities of innovative processes and solutions only seem to expand.

The Lumas Gallery window display showcases a series of robotically 3d printed vessels. The 20+ vessels were all printed using a Kuka robotic arm with a custom engineered and built end effector.

Death and Dying Discussions is a mini-symposium on design for end of life running in conjunction with DesignTO (Toronto Design Offsite Festival, January 18-27) and Health Design Studio at OCADU and Taboo Health. The symposium will provide an opportunity to share experiences of the changing landscape of end of life and open dialogue about the multiplicity of ways in which design collaborations might push the boundaries of design to engage with end of life issues. 
The new OCAD U Creative Professionals-In-Residence program is a mentorship initiative created to support the career success of current OCAD U students and recent alumni. This winter’s residents are Jessica Leong and Basil AlZeri.
A screening of the documentary, Muffins for Granny written and directed by filmmaker and Faculty and Curriculum Development Centre team member, Nadia McLaren. 
20/20—from retrospect to prospect, a participatory Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. for the next decades
20/20—from retrospect to prospect, a participatory Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. for the next decades Design is both an evolving and evocative creative process permeating all aspects of social, economic, and political life, and it is shifting the way our city operates, and functions. With human-centred values and diverse perspectives, advocacy, and calls to action, we are collectively and individually changing the social and physical fabric of Toronto, often with design as the catalyst.
Art and Design Education (ADEL): Community investigated various concerns around how we might achieve a healthier art and design education community at OCAD U.
OCAD U Faculty are invited to attend the 5th Annual Teaching Expo! 15 diverse sessions, united by the theme Teaching & Practice, will be led by members of the OCAD U community.
A keynote examining Education and Reconciliation by Dr. Mike DeGagné, Founding Director of the Aboriginal Healing Foundation and President and Vice-Chancellor of Nipissing University.   
Open life drawing session offered by the OCAD U Alumni Association
DesignTO’s fourth annual symposium brings 10 multidisciplinary experts into one room for an inspiring discussion on the Future of Work. The event features five thematic sessions on topics like meaningful work, inclusion and diversity, work space, economic systems, and ethics.
