    Please join us as we present an exhibition showcasing beautiful moccasins created by the Emily Carr University community. This year-long initiative invited staff, faculty and Aboriginal students to participate in a Moccasin making workshop. Through demonstrations, videos and guest artists, participants were shown how to design and sew their own pair of moccasins. Beadwork was a new challenge for most, and one that was eagerly met by these first time beaders.

    The pre-cut Elk hide templates and other supplies were supplied and organized by the Aboriginal Gathering Place and held weekly drop in times. It was a wonderful opportunity for staff and faculty across disciplines and departments to interact and engage with each other and our Aboriginal students.

    Augmented: The Emergence of Virtual Space is a showcase that explores the applications of augmented reality through the creation of various items for children. Through collaboration with graduate students at Hongik University in Seoul, South Korea, students have worked to create an app that, in combination with these products, blurs the boundaries between real space and fabricated CG space and creates an exciting and engaging augmented reality experience.

    Come take a look any time between Tuesday, November 24 and Friday, November 27th in the South Building atrium.

    To find out more about the project, view the short documentary.
