Not Fully Formed..., Elizabeth Adare Brown

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

Channel

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 2016 Washington University in St. Louis

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), Jorge Conesa-Sevilla 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 Path Not Taken: A Plan For Equitable Technology Integration In Chatham County Schools (Nc), Alex G. Lowry 2016 The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Alex G Lowry

White paper on equitable technology integration in schools accepted for presentation at the ESRI 2016 GIS in Education Conference (a subset of the 2016 ESRI User Conference). The paper utilized GIS in order to present the current demographic situation in Chatham County Schools (North Carolina) in arguing for a more equitable approach to ICT integration.


Getting Ready For The Real World: Student Perspectives On Bringing Industry Collaboration Into The Classroom, Sara B. Marcketti, Elena E. Karpova 2016 Iowa State University

Getting Ready For The Real World: Student Perspectives On Bringing Industry Collaboration Into The Classroom, Sara B. Marcketti, Elena E. Karpova

Elena E. Karpova

Learning through industry collaborations is critical in decreasing the gap between the real world and the academic environment. Working on challenges drawn from industry can increase students' knowledge and future employability, thus enhancing labor force preparation. This study explored students' perceptions (n = 110) of the benefits and challenges of working with industry projects as part of a creative thinking and problem-solving course. As a result of the industry collaboration, students reported more meaning to their learning experiences, deeper relevance to their future career paths, and increased motivation to deliver quality outcomes for industry and their class instructors. The challenges included ...


Arclight, Chris Knapp, Andrew Kudless, Jonathan Nelson 2016 Bond University

Arclight, Chris Knapp, Andrew Kudless, Jonathan Nelson

Chris Knapp

Arclight is a lighting installation put on display as part of the Sydney Vivid festival in 2015. This spatial and atmospheric project brings the quality of architectural inhabitation and visceral experience to an urban festival through a biomimetic proposition emulating dense bundled systems found in the natural environment, such as Australian mangroves or Strangler Fig trees, using parametric tools and digital fabrication processes. The installation serves as a register of the nonhuman environment. Embedded LEDs parse an environmentally driven data set, which provides a dynamic ambient interaction rather than the direct sensing of human actions. The result is an experience ...


The Manchurian Candidate Narrative: The Need For Balance And A Counter Narrative, Patrick E. Hardin 2016 University of Washington Tacoma

The Manchurian Candidate Narrative: The Need For Balance And A Counter Narrative, Patrick E. Hardin

MAIS Projects and Theses

Contemporary American media commonly misrepresents violence committed by veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as common place. The reasons for PTSD-related violence are complex, and representations of it in popular media contribute to the stigmatization and fear of veterans with PTSD in both the civilian and military populations. This project rationale is the presentation of a counter narrative to these dominant cultural narratives in the form of a web comic, titled Binary. Binary is the story of Derek Anderson which shows how deeply PTSD changes the lives of sufferers. Despite his disabled status and less-than-ideal living circumstances, Derek is ...
