Grad Studies @ Nuit Blanche

Image of 'Human Heart' by Floria Sigismondi, 2016
Saturday, October 1, 2016 - 4:00am

Among the hundreds of artists exhibiting throughout the streets for Nuit Blanche Toronto on October 1, 2016 from 7pm to 7am, are a collection of current and recent graduates of the Interdisciplinary Master’s in Art, Media and Design program.

Valerie Carew, Anna Kovler, and Garnet Willis (alumni) have work included in the Fly By Night exhibition at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St.). This exhibition “will showcase temporary installations with a particular focus on adaptive and ephemeral performance and installation.”

Current IAMD student Julian Majewski’s #TeeterTotter will be installed on the front lawn at Artscape Youngplace (180 Shaw St). Majewski’s “main interest in this project is how the #teetertotter encourages interaction while spreading a subtle yet powerful message towards celebrating DIY culture and aesthetic realization through recycling, repurposing, and scavenging.”

In addition, Michael Prokopow, Interim Dean, Graduate Studies is co-curator alongside Janine Marchessault of OBLIVION, one of the four city-produced exhibitions. Located in Nathan Phillips Square and City Hall there are three featured projects by Philip Beesley, Director X, and Floria Sigismondi (also an OCAD U alumni).

Graduate Studies Colloquia

Graduate Studies 2016 Colloquia
Wednesday, September 28, 2016 - 4:00am to Wednesday, November 9, 2016 - 5:00am

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.

Feminists in Games (FIG)

Feminists in Games (FiG) is a SSHRC-funded network development grant in partnership with Dr Jennifer Jenson at York University. The purpose of the project is to gather an international research association of digital media researchers to better understand the origins and consequences of the gendered digital divide and intervene in its reproduction.

OCAD University Graduate Researcher Madeline Ashby is funded to produce research for distribution by FiG. For Great Justice is a manual for feminist activism in the video game culture, community, and industry. It chronicles and examines successful strategies for activism, including examples from Occupy Wall Street, the Riot Grrls, Pussy Riot, and others. It models these movements and highlights the most effective traits of each. It then advises on strategies for activism and agency within online gaming communities and corporate video game development environments. With these strategies in place, individuals and communities can work more effectively for gender justice at work, at home, and at play.

FiG has funded 5 proposals for projects to receive incubator funding listed at http://www.ludicjunk.com/fig/ and Emma Westecott from OCADU will mentor the PsXXY¥borg (pro­nounced “cyborg”) project with game artist Hannah Epstein.

Resources:

Materials and publications reviewed and created over the course of this project will be collected in the library of a group on the academic social bookmarking service zotero.

Reflections on research will be gathered on Tumblr for easy access, populated with links of interest and lengthier reflections on the design of compelling information interfaces.
