The Research Studio for Spaces and Things is a research platform. It’s a platform for transdisciplinary artistic research, in the creative world if you wish. It’s a space, where people doing compliments, people doing video work, audio work, sculptural projects and 2D projects can meet, exchange, and think about things, develop ideas. It’s a new research center, here at UBCO. We do many things. I wanted to create something that was not that well-defined. Often, any with defined space, we’ll give it a role, and then this space and the role in which it was given to that space is, and forms a kind of activities you’re going to be doing. By creating a space has very little specific personality, opens the door to broader creative process. I wish that this space in the future will generate conversations, generic projects obviously, but will create a greater sense of connection between people who are making things, and people who are enjoying these things that are made by artists.
