    Barbara Rauch, Faculty of Art and School of Interdisciplinary Studies, Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto, Canada. Dr. Barbara Rauch is an artist practitioner and research academic. She is a Digital Futures Initiative hire, in a tenure-track position at OCAD University, Toronto in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies and Graduate Studies. Rauch is the Graduate Program Director for the Interdisciplinary Masters Program in Art, Media & Design (IAMD), and the Principal Investigator of the e_Motion Research Project in the Digital Media Research and Innovation Institute, researching the development of emotion with the facilitation of data analysis, using advanced technology in 3D printing, sculpting and analysis.

    In the lab we aim to designate an alternative format of acknowledging research by instigating discourse around the topic of emotion, feeling and affect in artistic practice. Situating ourselves in an academic and interdisciplinary research- and practice-led environment, we consider the ‘studio’ as a geographic and emotional location in which process and production takes place. Through practice-led research, we connect current studio practices to reflexive, visual analysis, as a transformative research methodology.
