Robert Ree is a designer, renderer, maker, and surfer based in Toronto.

With a Bachelor of Architecture from McGill, he spent more than a decade working on a range of projects in both Canada and the US, including a significant redesign of the Public Library in Burlington, Ontario. Along the way, he became very interested in digital media and culture, earning a Master of Information degree from the University of Toronto, where he was a founding and active member of the Critical Making Lab (a group dedicated to physical tinkering as a method of cultural research). Obsessed with the convergences between digital media and material making, Robert’s ongoing work has explored ‘tactile’ data visualization using open-source hardware and software, code-generated parametric sculpture, as well as research and writing on the physical and social dimensions of desktop materialization technologies such as 3D printing.

Joining the faculty at Sheridan in 2004, Robert teaches courses in drawing, 3D design, digital media, and digital fabrication. He is also the faculty sponsor of Sheridan Makers, a campus club that encourages students to engage emerging technologies in hands-on, creative work.
