ARTIST TALK: TOOLS AND PROCESSES FOR INTERACTIVITY
September 28 – 2:00 PM
Toronto-based collaborative duo Hopkins Duffield work in audio, video, installation, electronics, gaming, and performance disciplines. Drawing from experiences collaborating within the Toronto arts, education, gaming, and maker communities, they explore ways of combining both new and familiar mediums to create technologically altered interactive intermedia projects. During this talk Hopkins and Duffield will describe their approach to digital making and designing sensor-based objects that react to presence and touch.

SUMMIT PANEL TALK: THE SCIENCE OF CREATING
September 29, 2016 – 6:00 PM
The aim of this talk is to explore the applied practices arrived at through the convergence of technology and creativity. Here, we have convened a fantastic and diverse panel from an array of disciplines spanning interaction design, digital media, advertising, food and architecture who will meet to examine this junction of science and creativity and discuss how this confluence is quickly blurring traditional divisions between disciplines and informing new concepts in creating, modelling and making.
