The third annual Winterstations Design Competition sees the Kew, Balmy, and Scarboro beaches transformed into interactive art installations.
Of the eight winning entries, Humber college students in Art Foundation, Visual and Digital Arts, Interior Design, and Industrial Design proposed and constructed a winning entry that will be unveiled on Family Day, February 20th.
Explorers are challenged with what is and what can be through a visual distortion of reality in The illusory. Constructed of highly reflective linear panels, the circumambulatory experience pulls the explorer into the centre for a moment of introspection and to experience an ever-changing illusion of reality. From afar, the structure is incognito, reflecting the surrounding environment and fading into it. Entering the space, the explorer views misconstrued, mirroring illustrations of themselves and their surroundings.
The inspiration for the Illusory came from the relationship shared between humans and the environment. The site itself inspired the shape of the piece, where from afar the complete form curves and angles with the sloping beach while its reflectivity causes it to disappear into the sky. The installation is meant to provoke curiosity. After approaching the piece and entering into a circular space, participants view fragmented versions of themselves and the environment. The Illusory is an introspective experience, depicting humans themselves as the catalyst for change in the present environment.

"Land of Nod" Wins Runner-Up
Sat, January 14, 2017
FMTV thesis film "Land of Nod" won runner-up in Best Live Action category in Canada's Top Ten Student Shorts Programme on January 14, 2017.
The Land of Nod is the coming of age story of the sixteen-year-old Nicholas, a son of a local serial killer. Tormented by his classmates and uncared for by his alcoholic mother, Nicholas is on a quest to find out if he is anything like his father. His only ally is Enna, a fifteen-year-old girl who is obsessed with finding the body of one of the victims, her sister. Unsure of himself and who he might end up to be if he lets anger reign, Nicholas must look past guilt and others’ perceptions in order to move on. The Land of Nod is a dark coming of age story that explores the loss of innocence, the truth of nature and nurture, and the victims of murder that are not talked about: their families.

The broadcast was a huge undertaking for any professional broadcast news operation; embraced and executed with enthusiasm by Humber students who chose to get involved and cooperate with students from other programs.
The award winning team included the entire classes of all programs involved in the final credit, as well as:
Nick Westoll - Journalism Print & Broadcast: Producer, Co-host
Adam Haga - Broadcasting - Radio: Producer 2 (organization, and reporting live from Ottawa)
