Announcing "KI-X 2015"
KI-X: Knowledge Integration eXhibition; a convergence of disciplines, teaching methods and creative minds in an exhibition of topical, object-centric displays.
The students of the Amsterdam cohort in the Knowledge Integration program at the University of Waterloo invite you to experience the culmination of their third-year design project: The Museum Course. After spending ten days in Amsterdam last April and May, they returned to Waterloo in September ready to implement some of the design features we examined on their trip. Working in teams to produce these exhibits has been a rewarding and unique experience.
In building their exhibits, they have moved beyond the traditional projects and assignments typical of an undergraduate experience. The creation process allowed us to be self-directed and enabled us to incorporate skills from many different disciplines. The result is an exhibition that showcases their knowledge of museums and their design methods, as well as their teamwork and dedication to something that is a little out-of-the-box.
The event will take place in the EV1 Courtyard (EV1-250) over a 3 day period, as listed below:
- Monday, March 16th: 11am-4pm
- Tuesday, March 17th: 11am-7pm
- Wednesday, March 18th: 11am-6pm
Help solve an unsolved murder, and learn about forensic science along the way! Look at the cosmetics industry as a case study to examine how companies sell products. Explore mental illness through the lens of everyday objects. Find out whether the villains we love to hate are really so evil after all. Ask yourself: does having 600 friends in our pockets mean missing out on the ones right in front of us?
