The Science of Rock ‘N’ Roll

Experience science in the key of rock! Have you ever wondered about the science behind rock ‘n’ roll? How has technology shaped this multi-billion dollar industry? How can performers bring hundreds of thousands of screaming fans to their feet? What physiological effects does rock have on the listener? The Science of Rock ‘N’ Roll is an interactive exhibition that provides a fresh look at the history of rock from the perspective of science and technology. See how music has shaped the tools of rock – and how those tools have changed the music.

The Science of Rock ‘N’ Roll is included with general admission to the Science Centre.

Spit and Image

Toronto-based artist and writer Sam Cotter works across photography, film, installation and sculpture to examine issues of visual representation. In his installation Spit and Image (2012–14), Cotter explores parallels between spatial illusion and linguistic instability through the creation of an expanded cinema work that combines a continually looping film with an asynchronous poetic monologue. The installation utilizes a two-way mirror as a screen, extending the temporal and spatial ambiguities of cinematic representation into the space of the gallery.

Murder at the ROM Scavenger Hunt

1:00-3:30 pm. Saturdays in November. A curator has been murdered and a trail of clues left behind, connected to secrets in the collections. As you solve clues, you’ll begin to piece together a tale of greed, lust, pride and revenge. There are multiple suspects, one victim and you, the sleuths, must crack a cryptic code left in the curator’s appointment book to solve the mystery.

On an Urban Capers Scavenger Hunt, you don’t collect items, but rather answers to tricky and humourous questions. This event is not associated with the ROM. Tickets must be purchased in advance at www.urbancapers.com/murder-at-the-royal-ontario-museum/.

Dispatch: War Photographs in Print — 1854 – 2008

By comparing original prints with their reproductions in magazines, and in exhibiting other modes through which visual news is disseminated, DISPATCH reveals that taking a shot is only one step in the process of illustrating a war. Picture editors and art directors have always selected, trimmed, ordered and sequenced war photographs to suit their particular needs. This exhibition views these photographs not as windows open to the world, but as representations that are the product of changing editorial figures, aesthetic priorities and historical contexts. From Roger Fenton’s collodion plate photographs taken during the Crimean War (1853–1856) to Luc Delahaye’s images of the recent conflicts in Afghanistan (2001–present), the photographic representation of war has evolved dramatically in the Western press over the past 150 years.

Harun Farocki: Serious Games I–IV (2009–10)

Harun Farocki: Serious Games I–IV (2009–10) explores the use of virtual reality and gaming technology in U.S. military recruitment, training and after-action therapy, revealing fundamental links between technology and violence in a time of war. Young recruits engage in simulated combat training, which barely differs from video games produced as entertainment. Footage is included from a workshop demonstrating the use of computer re-enactments in the psychological care of veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. As a large-scale installation, Serious Games focuses on the role of audiovisual culture in the spectacle of war.
