Overview

A sculptor, draughtswoman and installation artist, Marjan Verstappen has recently finished her MFA at OCAD U.  In the Mobile Lab she uses her critical and conceptual skills to help design unique media objects.  She also writes papers about our design methods and presents them regularly at conferences.  In the past 12 months she had spoken about our research at the Culture of Cities conference in Manhattan and the World Social Science Forum in Montreal.  In her own research, Marjan is most interested in how we learn about our environment from visual and observational information. Her questions lead her to study the disciplinary crossovers between art and science.
