    LOoW is a four-year SSHRCC funded interdisciplinary art and science project, involving four phases between 2016-2020. It involves co-designing, testing, and analyzing models of collaboration for art and science. Participants include Emily Carr University’s faculty, art students, visiting artists + physicists, post-doctoral researchers and graduate students working at TRIUMF, Canada’s national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics and accelerator-based science located at the University of British Columbia

2017

  • Participant – cloTHING(s) as Conversation – Emily Carr University of Art + Design
    The cloTHING(s) as conversation project proposes to move away from the conventional view of clothing as a statement and unidirectional approaches to information/ cultural exchange. This is being done through exploring the possibilities of clothing as a form of worn communication. Our aim is to create new models for sustainable post growth clothing – to facilitate the development of new conceptual models pertaining to the design, production, and use of the clothing we wear.
