Made in Toronto
Our 2016-2017 exhibit, completed in collaboration with Museum Studies students, focuses on artifacts related to the production of scientific knowledge at the University of Toronto. From university glassblowers, to artists producing instructional images, to university researchers building unique lab equipment, the exhibit examines the variety people and objects behind the university’s rich ‘making’ history. We interviewed a number of technicians and artists–you can listen to their stories by following the link below, or here, for videos of the The Makers of Scientific Materials at the University of Toronto.
Our free exhibit is on the 3rd floor of the Victoria College building, which is open to the public during the week and weekends during the day and early evenings. It features a variety of objects from the UTSIC collection, such as the Bird Behaviour Recorder, locally crafted copies of psychological tests, a pair of goggles for rotating the visual field, a 3D printer as well as objects borrowed from other university collections.
