Using Both Sides of the Brain: The Engineering Art Show

The Engineering Art Show is running again at the U of A from March 17 – 27, 2014. The theme of this year’s show is Concentricity which revolves around the notion of growing and building on each as other as a community.  

The idea behind the Engineering Art Show was conceived by an engineering student Tyler Heal  three years ago to celebrate art in the engineering community as part of National Engineering and Geosciences Month (NEGM).  Apart from the art show this year, there are four different workshops/events that are being run by the team of twenty volunteers.

James Kokotilo, a final year Civil Engineering student is one of the workshop organizers at the Art Show this year. Apart from engineering, James has been practising sculpture as a hobby and is now going to bring his two interests together; as he will be starting his Masters in Architecture in the coming fall.

Approximately 80 submissions of varying media had been submitted this year by students, faculty and professionals.  This includes but is not limited to paintings, drawings, sculptures, stories, interactive puzzle, music, and performance art. 

Below is a quick peek at some of the submissions that are on display in ETLC and NREF for the next couple of days.

About the Author

When I am not busy with engineering school, I love painting in abstracts. I am also a huge movie buff and will watch anything with zombies in it.

I would like to share stories that are personal and reflective of the great community we have built here at the U of A. My experience at the university so far has brought forward a tremendous amount of personal growth, and I can’t wait to help share the wonderful stories and student experiences of this amazing university.
