Our sense of self is often shaped by how we believe others view us. Thus, the way we express ourselves through clothing and accessories plays an important role in the development of our identity. This serves true for both individuals with a disability and those without.

For the past few months, visitors to Emily Carr and Granville Island may have noticed a tiny 154 square foot house located east of the University, tucked near the water's edge.
The house was originally designed and built by Industrial Design students and instructor Charles Dobson for the Bowen Community Housing Association. The association was looking to address the needs of homeless individuals living on the island with affordable and sustainable housing. Unfortunately, the Bowen Island Municipality was unable to facilitate the move to Bowen and the tiny house remained on Granville Island.
On the morning of October 16, 2013, the tiny house was finally picked up by crane and truck destined for a new destination, but still holding true to its original purpose!

Current MAA student, Leah Weinstein, is participating in Culture Days in Richmond with three mobile sculptural performances.
The sculptural performances explore the relationship between collective bodies and nomadic architecture in work that aims to blur the line between contemporary art and everyday life in Richmond. This work is commissioned by Richmond Public Art, as part of Art in Unexpected Places, running from September 27 to 29, 2013.
The Shack (Art) Collective presents a closing exhibition of sculptural works by fourth year student Marc Paris on Saturday, September 21, 2013, from 2 to 4pm.
The marine radar reflector is a locating device for small vessels at sea. It is designed to reflect the signal of a radar system whose operator can detect the presence, direction, distance and speed of the vessel to which it is attached. As a means to reflect on his own transient experience on the water, Paris integrates this object with the gallery space, entering a dialogue regarding walls as ‘sculpture’ and walls as an indicator of place or location.
