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.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
