 Research findings: Generative Systems by Kathryn Farley

Sonia SheridanEach year, the Grants for Researchers in Residence Program offers researchers the possibility of working at the Foundation's Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D) and provides them access to its fonds and collections.

Kathryn Farley (Ph.D.) was a resident at the CR+D in 2006 and focused primarily on the Sonia Landy Sheridan fonds. This publication contains the findings of Farley's research and describes the singular methods of instruction used by Sheridan in her Generative Systems courses. This groundbreaking academic program, founded in 1970 at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL, U.S.) allowed students to explore the implications of emerging communications technologies on art production.

Drawing on diverse items in the fonds (course syllabi, lesson plans, administrative documents, photographs of class sessions, student assessment questionnaires and copies of assignments, video and audiotape documentation of instructional activities) and recent interviews with Sheridan, the study attempts to offer a comprehensive account of the evolution of Generative Systems and link its development to the emergence of art and technology studies at the post-secondary level.

 About the Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and Technology

The Daniel Langlois Foundation's purpose is to further artistic and scientific knowledge by fostering the meeting of art and science in the field of technologies. The Foundation seeks to nurture a critical awareness of technology's implications for human beings and their natural and cultural environments, and to promote the exploration of aesthetics suited to evolving human environments. The Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D) seeks to document history, artworks and practices associated with electronic and digital media arts and to make this information available to researchers in an innovative manner through data communications.
