Show and Tell: Thursday, December 13th, 2007

This week's Show & Tell will present a collaborative answer to the questions: "What is literacy?" "How does it emerge and evolve?"

The goal is to expand our understanding of literacy beyond common definitions and generate discussions that both challenge and explore what it means to be literate.

Show and Tell: Thursday, December 6th, 2007

In the first half of this week's show and tell Annie Spencer will present recent developments of her passion project Spiritual Media: One Pilgrim's Progress, which is focused on behaviors mediated and driven by human-spiritual motivations, and the emergence of new belief systems in digital networks.

Due to extended discussions and time constraints in last week's show and tell, we will be holding the cooperative exploration of “Creative Clusters & Convergence” in the second half of this weeks show and tell. As a reminder, the goal of this exploration is to identify key questions and discussion points for an upcoming charette being held at the Centre for Social Innovation.

Show and Tell: Thursday, November 29th

Research Associate Isabelle Rousset will present a first draft table of contents for the expansion of her current work which examines natural evolution in light of human manipulation of the world's river systems.

Using the river as metaphor for self-organization and complexity, Isabelle’s work aims to document and inform a robust and interconnected ecology that includes open observance, conscious practice and healthy emergence across a wide variety of systems, both natural and synthetic.

Isabelle’s presentation will be followed by a cooperative exploration of “Creative Clusters & Convergence”, the goal of which is to identify key questions and discussion points for an upcoming charette being held at the Centre for Social Innovation.


Beal Show & Tell this week!
Thursday, November 22nd at 2pm
Beal OCAD:100 McCaul St, Suite 600

Coming up at this week's Show & Tell:

  • Group Discussion: Avatar
    Avatar is a metaphorical representation of practically anything, usually defined in the virtual, imaginary. The avatar, as a concept, extends inwards and outwards, into the depths of our own humanity and out into the connections between. This is an interactive Show & Tell activity. All participants are asked to bring 5 slides for the discussion, each slide to contain one conversation per slide. (view summary and sample slides from our previous Group Discussion)
  • Martha Ladly, Associate Professor of Design at OCAD specializing in interaction design, presents her Paper "A Walk in the Park", an exploration of how we tell stories and convey locative information through the use of mobile technologies. She undertakes this project for her Master's Degree in the Joint Programme in Communication and Culture at York University and Ryerson.
