I would welcome an opportunity to speak to faculty and students in any area of the school about colour research (in any field) or about environmental design, embodied experience, colour and light, phenomenological approaches to practice-based research, etc. I am the founding President of the Colour Research Society of Canada (CRSC), the national organisation affiliated with the AIC, the International Colour Association (Association Internationale de la Couleur)  http://www.aic-color.org/

"The Last Days of Reality" talk & Q/A with guest speaker Mark Pesce

Balloon Dog
Monday, October 30, 2017 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

On the 3rd of October, Snapchat released an augmented reality ‘collaboration’ with artist Jeff Koons. Plopped in the middle of New York’s Central Park, Balloon Dog heralded a new form of presentation - and appropriation. Within 24 hours, artist Sebastian Errazuriz had ‘tagged’ the work (again, entirely virtually), in a “symbolic stance against imminent AR corporate invasion.”

That invasion is already here, marking ‘The Last Days of Reality’, when the boundaries between authentic and manipulated experience collapse into a newly-emerging ‘post-real’ era. What are the rules of the post-real? Who controls our senses - and, by extension, what we think and believe? What other sorts of interventions, appropriations and responses would undermine this latest assault of public space?

One of the most important aspects of university life is the sharing and discussion of ideas. The colloquium — or academic conference or seminar — represents an invaluable opportunity for graduate students to present their work. Each graduate program at OCAD University hosts such an event with the goal of having students discuss their thesis or MRP work. Open to the university and wider community, these colloquia are defined by intellectual rigor, the presentation of original ideas and work and critical discussions.
