This site is the home of the n-D::StudioLab, and the research component of Mark-David Hosale's research-creation practice.
The n-D::StudioLab is under the direction of Dr. Mark-David Hosale, Associate Professor in Computational Arts in the School of Arts, Media, Performance, and Design at York University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Computational Arts co-administers the Digital Media Undergraduate Program and the Digital Media Graduate Program with Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in the Lassonde School of Engineering.
The n-D::StudioLab is an adaptable space for research-creation based theoretical discourse, methodological development, and the production of works in the areas of ArtScience, Computational Art, and Interactive Architecture. In addition, there is an emphasis on methodological development in the integration of software development, digital fabrication, electronics hardware development, and sound and vision research with the goal of creating eversive works that blur the divide between the virtual and the real. Since its inception in October 2011 the n-D::StudioLab has been involved in the research and development of several works that have been shown internationally in such places as Toronto's Nuit Blanche, the Deutches Museum, the Dutch Electronic Arts Festival (DEAF), the Re-New Fesitval in Copenhagen, the Sydney Biennale, Currents New Media, and the Venice Biennale.
The “n” in n-D refers to vast potential and the infinite, whereas the “D” in n-D refers to:
- n-Disciplinary – trans-disciplinary, blurring boundaries, cross breeding and evolving fields
- n-Dimensional – expanding, complex and continuous
- n-Domain – trans-sensory, trans-experiential, transmodal
n-D::StudioLab is affliated with the following labs and research groups:
- Performance, Art and Cyber-Interoceptive Systems (PACIS)
- IceCube South Pole Neutrino Observatory (James Madsen)
- Living Architecture Systems Group (Philip Beesley)
- Alice Lab for Computational Worldmaking (Graham Wakefield)
- Dispersion Lab (Doug van Nort)
- Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA)
- Sensorium Research Centre
