This essay focuses on a 4th year course, titled "Search/Research/Resolution," that the author has developed at the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD), Toronto. First taught in 2002, the course is held over a fourteen week semester each fall, with one three hour class per week. It is offered within the photography area at OCAD in recognition of photography's lengthy history as a form of "evidence." The course endeavours to contextualize this role of photography, which leads to a focus on interdisciplinary activity, particularly in relation to artists' utilization of installation formats that often have included photography. In this essay, the author aims to do the following: briefly examine what is meant conventionally by the term "research"; identify the influences that led to the development of the course; examine the relationship of the course to his own artistic practise; highlight aspects of the course content; and, finally, offer some examples of the work that has been produced by students in response to the final assignment of the course. (Contains 11 figures and 10 endnotes.)
