Congratulations to Fine Arts-Stratford Professors Jane Tingley and Jessica Thompson and their colleagues in Computer Science – Dan Vogel, Ed Lank, and Michael Terry – on securing a major prestigious Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) Grant to create a facility for Fully Interactive Physio-digital Spaces. This globally unique facility will provide the infrastructure consisting of a fabrication shop (with 3-D printers, a lazer cutter, wood tools, electronics station, sound booth) and staging area (with a grid, many Christie projectors, lights, tracking systems, and speakers) for ground-breaking human-computer interaction and new media art research. It will be a fully-interactive digital media environment where every surface and object can display interactive digital information.
