Surface Tension Art Installation

by STEAM TEAM 2018 - Keshav Deeljur (Eng), Sarah Hodgson (Art), Lucy Oulanova (Art), Devansh Shah (Eng) Surface tension describes the force of attraction between individual water molecules creating a bond resistant to external pressure. This phenomena is a beautiful display of strength, cooperation, and unity. The team was inspired by this phenomena and drew inspiration from it visually and metaphorically. Photo: Sarah Hodgson

EQ balances creative forces of engineering and visual arts and like a living organism, it requires external energy to come alive. The kinetic energy of people climbing stairs, transforms into radiant energy and brings the structure to life. Photo: Bonnie Findley

Spirit of the Forest 3D Printed Mask

Spirit of the Forest 3D Printed Mask

by Sonia Mehour, La Cité This mask is inspired by the invented characters of author J.R.R.R. Tolkien in his heroic fantasy books which often refer to forest dwellers (elfs, nymphs, fairies, goblins and other creatures). Among these creatures is the spirit of the forest which is very often represented by a female character to symbolize mother nature and, this character is very often characterized by deer antlers. I chose to pay tribute to this character. Photo: Sonia Mehour

Sugar Balls Precision Drilling Jig

Sugar Balls Precision Drilling Jig

by Deborah Margot (Visual Artist & Part-time Professor) & David McDougall (Visual Artist, Part-time Professor & Technician). Special jig created on CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine to drill clean and consistent holes through large sugar balls used for a sculpture. When the pine jig was completed, each of the eight cavities was filled by a single sugar ball. All 8 forms were then drilled halfway, at the same time, by the CNC machine and then manually turned over to complete the holes.
