    On Friday, April 24, 2015, Emily Carr University special guests broke ground at a ceremony to marking the launch of construction for our new campus.

    As part of the celebration, four Emily Carr undergraduate communication design students created and designed the seven shovels to mark this historic event.  

    The seven shovels were created to represent seven distinct areas within Emily Carr’s community.

    1. Foundation Year – triangle motif symbolizes a pyramid, upward movement and focus, the journey students travel while pursuing their undergraduate degrees

    2. Faculty of Culture + Community – the circles represent the group, and the connection we all share with one another, which forms the fabric of culture

    Associate Professor, Kyla Mallett, has been researching, collecting and archiving second-hand self-help materials as a way to delve into the context and historical status of a popular, academically ‘unsanctioned’ discourse. The work uses this particular form of literary pop psychology to highlight a well-constructed promise of enlightenment and well being, while focusing on a cultural interest in the genre as a gesture of hope. Tempered by a healthy dose of skepticism about its transformative power, the work conflates and repositions this wobbly sphere of self-improvement and its role as a social convention.
