- ArtScienceCamp in Toronto: join us!
Art Science Camp is an unconference organized co-presented by Hart House and Subtle Technologies. Every year Subtle Technologies in Toronto brings us the very international Subtle Festival. For 15 years the Festival has been bringing people together to promote wonder, incite creativity and spark innovation across disciplines. The Subtle symposium, performances, workshops, screenings, exhibitions and networking sessions provide a forum to explore ideas and pose questions at the intersection of art, science and technology. I am sure you will want to attend next year’s festival! But in the meantime, join us for Art Science Camp.
So what is Art Science Camp: It is an Art, Science and Technology unconference. A two day conference which will pique your curiosity and broaden your interest by intertwining art, science and technology in a series of peer presentations.
Art Science Camp starts on Friday February 3rd, 2012 at 7 PM and gathers artists, scientists, students, engineers, architects, designers and geeks. The Friday evening party is the venue for collaboratively creating a program of events to take place the next day. Everyone is encouraged to bring a crazy idea, a work in progress, or a vital topic for discussion, and to organize a session around it. Anyone interested a presentation or a discussion can claim a presentation spot on the schedule.
Last year, the first Art Science Camp included presentations by:
Eric Boyd – wearable electronics designer, Toronto Hacklab leader
Dan Falk – Knight Science Journalism fellow, popular science author
Like last year, Art Science Camp is going to aim at bringing together people who would not normally have conversations with each other, and create a space for surprising and serendipitous connections.
The first Art Science Camp last year sold out, and this year it is about to sell out, so if you are interested in getting a ticket, don’t delay. Registration is open and we have close to 100 attendees already.
ArtScienceCamp is looking for sponsors to make this year’s unconference unforgettable. If you can land a hand, help with sponsorships, sponsor lunch, dinner or drinks, please get in touch. An awesome sponsorship which helps defray the cost of this volunteer event starts at $250.

- Image Sleuthing the French way
in English (loosely translated): For example, to find out if the photograph of the homeless person used by Marine Le Pen comes from a stock photo site, use TinEye. Advice that Marine Le Pen – president of the Front National (France) should have been aware of before launching her campaign. Thanks Alexandre Léchenet and Laurent Lucas.
Laurent Lucas is a journalist for “Le Grand Journal” at Canal+ but he is also a bit of a photo sleuth. He maintains a tumblr blog where he documents his sleuthing! He spotted that the homeless man taking center stage in the Front National pamphlet is neither homeless, nor French but rather a stock photo.
