Made in Toronto
Our 2016-2017 exhibit, completed in collaboration with Museum Studies students, focused 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.
This exhibit is now closed (find our latest exhibit here). You can find many of the objects featured in Made in Toronto in our online catalogue, including the Bird Behaviour Recorder, locally crafted copies of psychological tests, a pair of goggles for rotating the visual field, and our Thing-O-Matic 3D printer.
