Knowledge Integration eXhibition: KI-X 2013Export this event to calendar

Monday, March 11, 2013 (all day) to Wednesday, March 13, 2013 (all day)

KI-X (n): Knowledge Integration eXhibition; a convergence of disciplines, teaching methods and creative minds in an exhibition of topical, object-centric displays.

The students of the Copenhagen cohort in the Knowledge Integration program invite you to experience the culmination of our third-year design project: The Museum Course. After spending ten days in Copenhagen last April and May, we returned to Waterloo in September ready to implement some of the design features we examined on our trip. Working in teams to produce these exhibits has been a rewarding and unique experience.

In building our exhibits, we 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 our knowledge of museums and their design methods, as well as our teamwork and dedication to something that is a little out-of-the-box.

Come travel back in time and join an historic arctic expedition and relive the trials and triumphs of explorers past. Look at what happens when we change how we interact with each other and our planet by looking at values beyond the price tag. Discover what you can spy with your citizen eye and look at how DIY is affecting our resilience and our world. In addition to these exhibits, take a look at a meta-exhibit that examines the design process of the Museum Course sequence!
