All Day Art Exhibition: Surface Tension (Multi-Day Event)
The Robert Langen Art Gallery's Fall 2016 exhibition, Surface Tension is an ongoing collaborative interdisciplinary sound and video work created by renowned Canadian artists Eve Egoyan (piano) and David Rokeby (installation). On Fridays during the exhibition run, visitors are invited to play the Disklavier themselves and to experience the ways in which the video projection responds to their inputs. We gratefully acknowledge Yamaha Canada Music and Music Plus for generously providing the Yamaha Disklavier Piano featured in the exhibit.

    • The Demand and Supply for Favours in Dynamic Relationships


    We characterise the optimal demand and supply for favours in a dynamic principal-agent model of joint production, in which heterogenous project opportunities are stochastically generated and publicly observed upon arrival. Our results characterise the optimal dynamic contract, and we establish that the principal's supply of favours (the production of projects that benefit the agent but not the principal) is backloaded, while the principal's demand for favours (the production of projects that benefit the principal but not the agent) is frontloaded. Furthermore, we provide an exact construction of the optimal contract when project opportunities follow a Markov process.

    Jean Guillaume Forand received his PhD in Economics from the University of Toronto. He is currently a faculty member at the Department of Economics, University of Waterloo. Earlier in his career he held visiting positions at the Wallis Institute for Political Economy at the University of Rochester, as well as at the Johns Hopkins University‚Äč. He is part of the Miacro Theory Reading Group which focuses on a range of topics, including game theory. Forand's main research interests are in microeconomic theory, as well as in political economy.
