Thursday, October 13, 2016 - 10:00pm to Friday, November 11, 2016 - 11:00pm

The current exhibition at the OCAD U Student Gallery, Escape to Camp CMYK, features work by current Interdisciplinary Master's in Art, Media and Design student Eli Schwanz and recent alumna of the Digital Futures graduate program, Katie Kotler.

More about the exhibition:

"Escape to Camp CMYK is an augmented campground, an experiential landscape that expels the stresses of everyday life, through the interplay of both the virtual and the physical. Entering through the campground’s trails, reveals an immersive space filled with hypnotic campfire, celestial light play, and an alien canopy. Exploring the campground divulges a performance that embodies the search for physical and mental serenity. Escape to Camp CMYK creates an experimental environment that is submerged in tranquility, by the use of everyday objects, light, and technology."

EXhibiton open from Wednesday - Saturday, 12:00 - 6:00pm

Students share their experience of the Awenda Inspired! field trip

Thursday, October 27, 2016 - 4:15pm

Angela Lea Tupper, Fourth Year, Drawing and Painting

The Awenda Inspired! field trip was my first time painting en plein air, and not having to worry about the travel arrangements made the experience less intimidating. Being joined by a large group of fellow artists was also a wonderful support, allowing me to devote my full attention to our surroundings—I could observe simply as a visitor settling into the serene rhythm of the park, and also as an artist recording the effects of light and colour on my canvas. The opportunity to display our work further offered an interactive activity to conclude the day. Both artists and visitors were able to compare our varied responses to the landscape that inspired the Group of Seven painters. It provided us with a creative way to share our perceptions of the park as a community. Hopefully the species newly discovered in the territory that day (a variety of inner-city rat) was not one of the elements we shared with the park!

 

Connie Santos, Fourth Year, Drawing and Painting

The Awenda-inspired trip was an amazing opportunity to get away from the busy urban life of Toronto and to be surrounded by nature. It was my first time going to Awenda and I found the beaches to be very breath taking and very inspirational for en plein air painting. The beaches provide a clear view of Georgian Bay and its many islands, as well as a clear view of the rocks underneath the water.  The staff was friendly and more than willing to provide individuals with more knowledge such as the wild life found in the park. This trip is a great opportunity for artists to include on their CVs. Awenda is a beautiful and tranquil place that will leave you wanting to go back.

Search Engine

Friday, November 21, 2008 - 5:00am

On Friday November 21, 2008, OCAD Time Based Media students will muster their digital skills and set out – laptops and digital cameras in tow – on a custom built quest, dubbed Search Engine. Given a single tantalizing clue that alludes to a continuous narrative – students must decode the clue, and launch their search for a series of digital image fragments.

Each found picture fragment will be emailed via OCAD’s wireless network to a home base from which the university's students will receive their next clue.

Over the course of the semester these first-year students will have honed their techniques using digital video and still cameras, graphics editing in Photoshop, web site construction and interactive digital media. Search Engine will maximize this new familiarity and further engage students with the facilities and community that OCAD has opened to them. At the end of their search, students will gather their digital fragments and assemble them to form a whole image – an allegorical narrative that illuminates what they have learned. Search Engine will culminate in a gathering in OCAD's Main Lobby on Friday, November 21 at which the composite images will be displayed. The images will be creative representations of the original image due to different methods and angles in the image capturing and compositing process.
