OCAD President Sara Diamond speaks at Colloquium at the Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics.

"The boundary object is an ethnographic term that describes objects, processes, or words that cross between cultures or disciplines. Boundary objects are often the currency and the result of cross disciplinary practices. All manner of things, from software, to maps, to theories can provide a rich terrain for misunderstanding, tentative agreements or new insights. Case studies of cross-disciplinary art and science collaborations or design and engineering projects will provide examples."

Students enrolled at surrounding universities and institutes are welcome to attend. Transportation for groups can often be arranged and generally involves a ride via Perimeter Institute's Shuttle Van service.
