In situ artists and designers Jordan Charles, Taliya Cohen, Alexandra D’Arcy, Min Hyung, & Vanessa Rieger take on the metropolis.

Subtle Technologies Festival of Science & Art

Thursday, May 29, 2008 - 4:00am to Sunday, June 1, 2008 - 4:00am

In Winter 2008, the course "Modern Physics" was offered at OCAD by Faculty of Liberal Studies Instructor Robin Kingsburgh for the first time. In this course, the world of physics was explored, emphasizing physical observations and visualizations of nature, from the realm of the human scale, through microscopic and macroscopic scales. The course examined topics in modern physics including cosmology, relativity and quantum mechanics (without math!), along with their historical contexts. Particular emphasis was placed on the role of visualization in science, and inter-relations between science and art. As part of the course, an assignment was geared towards participating in Subtle Technologies, with the theme of Light.

For the assignment, students had to research a scientific phenomenon involving light. Possible topics included iridescence, wave-particle duality, making the invisible visible (i.e. visualizing parts of the electromagnetic spectrum outside of visible wavelengths) and exploring various optical phenomena like refraction, reflection, polarization and scattering. The students were instructed to research the topic and write a 6-page essay. Following the research they were instructed to create an art piece involving this phenomenon, either literally or metaphorically, as a response to the scientific knowledge they had accumulated during the research process.

These students' works will be on display at the Subtle Technologies Festival of Science & Art, May 29 to June 1 at Innis College, University of Toronto.

Imperial Measures: An Exhibition of Networked Art

Imperial
Saturday, April 5, 2008 - 4:00pm to 9:00pm

Imperial Measures is social network experiment created by students of Ryerson University and OCAD. With twenty-four exhibition sites and a wireless network, people will be able to communicate, touch and even play with those in other locations. The network creates both a path for data and a circuit within which people travel from one place to the next to connect the dots, determine outcomes, and even physically transport and reassemble the pieces of a geo-political puzzle.

As New Media student Jeff Graham puts it, "the people are what make the art." The event is entirely participatory, the audience and participants play just as much of an important role as the artworks themselves he says. The inputs, outputs, relationships, and experiences are completely unique to each participant, which makes for an incredibly exciting and unpredictable experience. Fellow student Diana Brucculieri adds, "people will be able to see how the students of today will be changing the world of tomorrow through technology."

If it sounds like you might get lost in transit, the students want to assure you that the journey will be just as much fun as the destination.

Takes place at OCAD, Ryerson University School of Image Arts, 122 Bond Street, and Ryerson University, Rogers Communication Centre at 80 Gould St.

Integrated Media Wing, Level 3 (Grange Wing) 100 McCaul St., Toronto, Ontario
