Bachelor of Fine Arts Senior Papers
An appraisal of the artist’s place and responsibility in the diluted, steaming [sic] timeline of show and tell as is now experienced daily by artist and audience alike. The predicaments and possibilities are posited, assessed and adjudicated sequentially. These actions are set against a backdrop of art history and emergent narrative methodologies in the arts. The judgements inform the studio practice.
The Crucified Christ, 2017 Rhode Island School of Design
The Crucified Christ
This figure of the crucified Christ was originally attached to a cross and suspended above a church altar where it was visible to all during the celebration of Mass. In this version, Christ’s body appears upright with arms outstretched, as if in resurrection, in contrast to representations that depict him sagging from suspended weight. Instead of conveying suffering, his gaze expresses acceptance. The carved sculpture was originally painted in lifelike colors, traces of which remain in the wound below Christ’s ribs. Other details are more abstract, such as the patterns of parallel incisions that define his hair and ...

The Void Between Us, Hannah D. Blumer
Bachelor of Fine Arts Senior Papers
My interactive thesis installation, The Void Between Us, addresses the topic of human connection in relationship to the body. The human body marks a physical barrier between one’s self and others. While we exist in the same physical sphere as one another, our minds are isolated in our own self-centered versions of reality. Our bodies allow us to perceive others and be perceived—including having verbal communications—and, therefore, could be seen as helpful or restrictive in the social world. However, our bodies also allow us to engage in physical interactions with others, such as sex, which is a ...
Ecopsychology Revisited: For Whom Do The “Nature” Bells Toll? (In Progress), 2016 European Ecopsychology Society
Ecopsychology Revisited: For Whom Do The “Nature” Bells Toll? (In Progress), Jorge Conesa-Sevilla
Jorge Conesa-Sevilla PhD
"[...] A recurring theme in “ecopsychology,” in its present and inchoate form, is the continuation and extension of “spirit” in juxtaposition with other privileged and/or habitually preferred (perhaps even psychologically needed) practices or causes (spirituality-somethings, farcical chemistry or physics, yoga, coopted and partially understood indigenous lore, extreme diets, and various fetishes). That these mostly emotion-laden, unreasoned, and/or idiosyncratic amalgamations are prevalent says more about the psychological needs of the persons espousing these sentiments or beliefs (their hobbies or interests) than about “nature.” Certainly, it is nothing new that humans project their hopes, desperations, and wish-fulfillment thinking onto the shifting ...

The Language Of Fashion: Communication, Conceptual Clothing, And The Runway Performance, 2016 Western Kentucky University
The Language Of Fashion: Communication, Conceptual Clothing, And The Runway Performance, Jarred Johnson
Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects
Scholars have long neglected the study of fashion as anything other than a socioeconomic and cultural phenomena that reflects the more substantial political and historical zeitgeist of a time period. This study takes up Gilles Lipovetsky’s plea for a “theoretical facelift” of the study of fashion. Using an original theoretical framework that delineates the communicative structures of fashion as fabric, drape, and accessory, this work analyzes the conceptual meaning of runway performances by designers Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs. Though conceptual fashion shows are often described as spectacles intended to stir up a label’s recognition and ultimately bolster ...
The Poet's Corpus: Memory And Monumentality In Wilfred Owen's "The Show", 2016 The University of Southern Mississippi
The Poet's Corpus: Memory And Monumentality In Wilfred Owen's "The Show", Charles Hunter Joplin
Wilfred Owen is widely recognized to be the greatest English “trench poet” of the First World War. His posthumously published war poems sculpt a nightmarish vision of trench warfare, one which enables Western audiences to consider the suffering of the English soldiers and the brutality of modern warfare nearly a century after the armistice. However, critical readings of Owen’s canonized corpus, including “The Show” (1917, 1918), only focus on their hellish imagery. I will add to these readings by demonstrating that “The Show” is primarily concerned with the limitations of lyric poetry, the monumentality of poetic composition, and the ...

Directing Convergent And Divergent Activity Through Design Feedback., Shanna R. Daly, Seda Yilmaz
Design education across design disciplines prioritizes project-based courses to support student learning about design processes and strategies (Eastman, Newstetter, & McCracken, 1999; Smith, Sheppard, Johnson, & Johnson, 2005). Success in teaching these courses relies on the ability of instructors to mentor and guide students' design paths, allowing students some freedom to determine design decisions on their own, while facilitating a structure where they can learn successful design strategies.

Leap Of Imagination: Design Heuristics Help Students Think Outside The Box And Devise Novel, More Diverse Solutions., Julia Kramer, Shanna Daly, Seda Yilmaz, Colleen Seifert, Richard Gonzalez
Innovations depend on creative-concept generation, but engineering students often struggle to come up with ideas. They typically proffer a handful and fixate either on their first idea or existing solutions. As a result, students explore only a narrow subset of possible solutions.
What Is The Content Of “Design Thinking”? Design Heuristics As Conceptual Repertoire, 2016 Purdue University
What Is The Content Of “Design Thinking”? Design Heuristics As Conceptual Repertoire, Colin M. Gray, Colleen M. Seifert, Seda Yilmaz, Shanna R. Daly, Richard Gonzalez
When engaged in design activity, what does a designer think about? And how does she draw on disciplinary knowledge, precedent, and other strategies in her design process in order to imagine new possible futures? In this paper, we explore Design Heuristics as a form of intermediate-level knowledge that may explain how designers build on existing knowledge of “design moves”—non-deterministic, generative strategies or heuristics—during conceptual design activity. We describe a set of relationships between disciplinary training and the acquisition of such heuristics, and postulate how design students might accelerate their development of expertise. We conclude with implications for future ...
Can Experienced Designers Learn From New Tools? A Case Study Of Idea Generation In A Professional Engineering Team, Seda Yilmaz, Shanna R. Daly, James L. Christian, Colleen M. Seifert, Richard Gonzalez
Generating novel ideas is a challenging part of engineering design, especially when the design task has been undertaken for an extended period of time. How can experienced designers develop new ideas for familiar problems? A tool called Design Heuristicsprovides strategies that support engineers in considering more, and more different, concepts during idea generation. Design Heuristics have been shown to help novice engineers create a set of more diverse and creative candidate concepts. In this case study, we extended this approach to a group of professional engineers who had worked on a specific product line for many years. In a ...
How Do Designers Generate New Ideas? Design Heuristics Across Two Disciplines, 2016 Iowa State University
How Do Designers Generate New Ideas? Design Heuristics Across Two Disciplines, Seda Yilmaz, Shanna R. Daly, Colleen M. Seifert, Richard Gonzalez
Research supports the central role cognitive strategies can play in successful concept generation by individual designers. Design heuristics have been shown to facilitate the creation of new design concepts in the early, conceptual stage of the design process, as well as throughout the development of ideas. However, we know relatively little about their use in differing disciplines. This study examined evidence of design heuristic use in a protocol study with 12 mechanical engineers and 12 industrial designers who worked individually to develop multiple concepts. The open-ended design problem was for a novel product, and the designers’ sketches and comments were ...
Assessing Design Heuristics For Idea Generation In An Introductory Engineering Course, 2016 University of Michigan-Ann Arbor
Assessing Design Heuristics For Idea Generation In An Introductory Engineering Course, Shanna R. Daly, James L. Christian, Seda Yilmaz, Colleen M. Seifert, Richard Gonzalez
Design Heuristics are prompts that encourage design space exploration during concept generation. Design Heuristics were developed by analyzing trends in innovative products and patterns in ideation by engineering and industrial designers of varying experience levels. In this study, 48 freshmen engineering students were given a short design task and a set of twelve Design Heuristics Cards. Each card described a heuristic, and gave two examples of its application in a product. Students were asked to create new design concepts using the heuristics. The results showed that the concepts created without Design Heuristics were less developed, and were often replications of ...
Investigating The Impacts Of Design Heuristics On Idea Initiation And Development, 2016 University of Michigan-Ann Arbor
Investigating The Impacts Of Design Heuristics On Idea Initiation And Development, Julia Kramer, Shanna R. Daly, Seda Yilmaz, Colleen M. Seifert, Richard Gonzalez
This paper presents an analysis of engineering students’ use of Design Heuristics as part of a team project in an undergraduate engineering design course. Design Heuristics are an empirically derived set of cognitive “rules of thumb” for use in concept generation. We investigated heuristic use in the initial concept generation phase, whether heuristic-inspired concepts were carried through to later design process stages, and how concept synthesis within each team’s design process related to heuristic use. The results reveal widespread use of Design Heuristics among the concepts generated by individuals and selected by teams for further development, and a prevalence ...
