Radical Norms featured in Creative Applications Network blog

 

Thursday, January 24, 2019

After being introduced at Design TO’s 2019 festival (ongoing through January 27, 2019) '100% Chair: Design for algorithmic landscapes' has been featured in CreativeApplications.Net (CAN), one of today's most authoritative digital art blogs.

Created by Radical Norms, 100% Chair is an exploratory project speculating on the near future where humans and smart machines live, learn and work together. The project explores design processes that consider Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) as a collaborator and a stakeholder. Radical Norms is an emerging design studio led by its three founders, Angelika Seeschaaf-Veres, Koby Barhad and Instructor Daniel Daam-Rossi, who are also teaching in the Industral Design Program. Having cultivated their respective design practices internationally, Toronto has become the place where they look to apply their knowledge and expertise as Radical Norms.

Launched in 2008, CAN tirelessly beat reports innovation across the field and catalogues projects, tools and platforms relevant to the intersection of art, media and technology.

Once again, OCAD U’s Project 31 fundraising auction was a great success, raising much-needed funds for scholarships and bursaries for students in financial need and the purchase of specialized equipment. This year, Project 31 featured 39 works donated by 42 of OCAD U’s award-winning faculty members and alumni. This year’s auction raised $144,250 (gross) and since 2010, the event has raised more than $1 million (net).

The Office of Research & Innovation is excited to announce the launch of a second iteration of the "THIS IS RESEARCH" campaign, intended to raise awareness about research at OCAD University.
Dear Members of the OCAD U Community:  At 4:45 p.m. on Friday afternoon, OCAD University received the devastating news that the government of Ontario has withdrawn provincial funding for the Creative City Campus (CCC). We are unwilling to accept this as a final decision.  Ontario’s competitiveness depends on OCAD University’s talent. Our institution delivers practical, technical, creative learning to fulfil the needs of Ontario’s labour market. 
OCAD University graduate Yechel Gagnon was recognized at the end of March as Creator of the Year in Montérégie, QC, a $5000 prize given by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ). The 17th edition of the award gathered more than 80 people from the Monteregian artistic community, along with partners and friends of the culture.
