In May of 2016, Sheridan’s Faculty of Art, Animation and Design created an internship studio for students in FAAD and FAST to work collaboratively on an installation project for HMC 2’s new Creativity Commons. Facilitated by Canadian artist and new media visionary Stacey Spiegel, students developed a goal to tell the story of Sheridan’s creative legacy and to visualize the ‘Sheridan experience’.
This past weekend, a team of Sheridan’s second year Industrial Design students won first place in Rethink Tires, a design challenge sponsored by Ontario Tire Stewardship. Students were asked to address the needs of the Artscape building on Shaw Street in Toronto using recycled tire materials. The goal of the challenge is to ignite creativity and innovative environmental landscape architecture and industrial design while showcasing the aesthetics, functionality and high performance of Ontario tire-derived products. Sheridan’s team placed first in the Industrial Design category, winning a $3,000 scholarship. The group of four consists of Alexandra D’Oliveira, Patrick Marchent, Michael Mofina and Neil Smith.
