INFRACAMPUS is an interdisciplinary project initiated by SYN- that explores the social realities and spatial politics of the University of Guelph campus, and proposes the campus as a potential site for experimentation.
> During the second phase, SYN- offered a four-week accredited studio course during Spring 2012, in collaboration with Associate Professor Lise Burcher and the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development. Students participating in this course individually and collectively investigated a diversity of spatial and circumstancial conditions, building on prior research and using the university campus as a starting point to elaborate sets of microactions.
> The third phase consisted of disseminating the research and knowledge produced in the first two phases of INFRACAMPUS to the broader community of students and staff at University of Guelph as well as Guelph residents, through a week-long participatory production of the INFRACAMPUS Zine in Winter 2013. Unforeseeable and exciting content associations were generated during these working sessions by editing crews of students and staff. We anticipate the making of this zine could inspire further creative actions on campus.
