One Who Protects a Sibling

Group Photo
Friday, January 18, 2019 - 12:00pm to Sunday, February 3, 2019 - 12:00pm

Race relations in Canada are often viewed through the prism of Indigenous/European settler binaries. ‘One Who Protects a Sibling’ seeks to shift focus to explore Indigenous and Black relations through the direct personal connections between pairs of OCAD University Indigenous and Black students (Emily Kewageshig, Star Nahwegahbo, Bert Pringle, Renee Loeza Goycochea, Adé Abegunde and Aljumaine Gayle,) as well as the project facilitators, Jason Baerg [Cree Métis] and Dori Tunstall [African American]. Each set of partners co-creates through dialogue mediated objects and/or experiences that provide deep cultural and emotional protection for each other. Through the co-designs, the design partners explore the history of Indigenous and Black relations in Canada, the shared conditions of marginalization that affect both communities, and issues of appropriation and misappropriation between the two communities. Starting with each community’s relationship to the land, the design partners speculate on future relations between Indigenous and Black communities.

Design TO Festival 2019 at 50 Park Road

Chung-im Kim installation
Friday, January 18, 2019 - 10:15am to Sunday, January 27, 2019 - 5:00pm

“Certain forms found in natural world fascinates me a great deal as they exemplify the fundamental rules of pattern making in design and reveal the structural secrets through their architecture. This essential understanding stimulates my imagination towards building a complex undulating surface with both regular and irregular modules. The role of mathematical thinking in my work is as inevitable as that of nature itself. Ideally, I would like to portray a coherent philosophy rooted in both nature and science, yet I would contrarily also like to shake up their logic in the hope that my work might transcend my current knowledge. Or perhaps be allowed to become more spontaneous and less predictable.

At the same time, in my mind, the modules represent certain growths or changes brought about through passage of time. I imagine them symbolizing the fragments of memories that we experience through our conscious journeys. Through them I want to explore the chaotic order resulting from many small pieces containing image fragments. In this work, skeleton, I would like to see each of the parts as an independent soul presenting unique power and energy that then together become an entity as cells to a body. I hope to evoke the birthing tension when all are gathered.” - Chung-Im Kim

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

Robotic Printing
Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 12:00pm to Sunday, January 27, 2019 - 12:00pm

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.
