Digital Futures Master’s candidate Marc De Pape took first place honours and a people’s choice award during last Thursday’s first annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition at OCAD U.

His presentation “The Chime: Scoring the City” outlined his thesis project: a device that holistically translates environments into acoustic feedback.

The 3MT competition was initially developed by the University of Queensland,  Australia in 2008 to promote effective communication of research. 3MT has  spread internationally, and this year Queen’s University in Ontario is  organizing the first province-wide competition.

Tahireh Lal, a candidate from the Interdisciplinary Master’s in Art, Media and Design, was selected as the runner-up for her presentation “Metaphysical Gravity.”

The Office of Graduate Studies congratulates all participants for their outstanding work, and wishes the winners good luck as they move to the provincial finals in April.
