It Can't Leave You The Way It Finds You, 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln
It Can't Leave You The Way It Finds You, Kyle Nobles
Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design
There’s a beautiful innocence in childhood where, although the world is large and new, it feels as though your place in it and the roles that you play are stable and unchanging. In our youth, outside of extraordinary circumstances, we are unburdened by the awareness that everything and everyone is subject to radical change—including our own sense of self. As we grow older though, looking back it becomes clear that this was never the case. In a matter of years, you can change so dramatically that you did not even notice as you became an entirely new person ...
A Girl's Guide To Nail Art, 2018 University of Rhode Island
A Girl's Guide To Nail Art, Emma Rohnstock
Senior Honors Projects
Nail art has led me to be more creative in my life and helped me find my passions of film, photography, and art. I started sharing my nail art through an online blog, but wanted to formalize my interest through a book and possibly a publication in the future. By making this book, I wanted children who read it to learn a new skill and find inspiration in each technique. Nail art has allowed me to express myself and discover my creativity, so I hope this book will allow a younger audience to do the same. I wanted to share ...

Bobo is a line drawing, rendered in marker, with a circular head, two dot eyes, three puffs of hair with a clown smile and clown clothing. Experience Bobo Experience speaks to viewers ...

Making Visible: More Of The Picture, 2018 Lesley University
Making Visible: More Of The Picture, Sarah Slavick
Lesley University Community of Scholars Day
In Linda Nochlin’s essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?, “ she demonstrates how, for centuries, institutional and societal structures had made it “impossible for women to achieve artistic excellence, or success, on the same footing as men, no matter what the potency of their so-called talent, or genius.” As the Guerilla Girls noted, only 1 woman had a solo museum show in NY in 1985, and, in 2015, 30 years later, it wasn’t much better with 1 at the Guggenheim, Met and Whitney, and 2 at MOMA. On International Women’s Day, March 1, 2017, I ...

Good Game, 2018 Virginia Commonwealth University
Good Game, Greyory Blake
Theses and Dissertations
This thesis and its corresponding art installation, Lessons from Ziggy, attempts to deconstruct the variables prevalent within several complex systems, analyze their transformations, and propose a methodology for reasserting the soap box within the display pedestal. In this text, there are several key and specific examples of the transformation of various signifiers (i.e. media-bred fear’s transformation into a political tactic of surveillance, contemporary freneticism’s transformation into complacency, and community’s transformation into nationalism as a state weapon). In this essay, all of these concepts are contextualized within the exponential growth of new technologies. That is to say ...
Genderfail: The Queer Ethics Of Dissemination, 2018 Virginia Commonwealth University
Genderfail: The Queer Ethics Of Dissemination, Brett E. Suemnicht
Theses and Dissertations
My research is centered upon my ongoing project GenderFail, a publishing and programming initiative featuring the perspectives of queer and trans people and people of color. GenderFail: The Queer Ethics of Dissemination is a collection of writings on queer collaboration, archiving as a collective act, and publishing as a site of queer community. The following text also illustrates the importance of creating and maintaining an intersectional platform as a non-binary white queer subject. I examine and define the role of “queer identity” in my own work while mapping the history of failure by white queers, including myself, in the of ...
In Search Of Communication, 2018 Georgia Southern University
In Search Of Communication, Usman O. Oladeinde
Electronic Theses & Dissertations
This thesis examines the work included in Usman Oladeinde’s MFA thesis exhibition. The goal of this thesis paper is to explore major themes such as communication, identity, change, centeredness, landscapes, and language. These paintings present Arabic letter forms transformed into illegible shapes which are painted on landscape backgrounds, often depicting an aesthetic of textual elements receding into space. All these works are inspired by the Qibla, which is represented in the abstract and painted using acrylic media. Occasionally image transfers are mounted on the painted surface.
Visual representations like mine are communicative without forcing the viewer to one specific ...
Drawing As An Advent To Design Studio Education, 2017 Iowa State University
Drawing As An Advent To Design Studio Education, Carl A. Rogers
Design studio education separates design and visual representation as individual subjects requiring different educational objectives. Each subject employs distinct skills such as line and value for visual representation or form and experience for design. The potential of design decisions should be based upon integration creative ideas with observation and representation skills. This paper describes a drawing process conceived by the author which considers issues of drawing including i) the pictorial function of drawing, ii) the ability of drawing to illuminate ideas, and iii) the relationship between seeing and imagining when drawing. The goal is to consider the intrinsic relationship between ...

Artists’ Books Collection Development: Considerations For New Selectors And Collections, 2017 University of North Florida
Artists’ Books Collection Development: Considerations For New Selectors And Collections, D. Courtenay Mcleland
Library Faculty Presentations & Publications
In the 2010 survey Taking Our Pulse: The OCLC Research Survey of Special Collections and Archives, artists’ books were the specific genre most often identified as a new collecting area within library special collections departments.1 For librarians at institutions without an artists’ books collection, beginning and sustaining the growth of a new collection can be an exciting and challenging opportunity to become acquainted with an additional area of specialized knowledge. Other librarians may be at institutions that possess a fledgling collection of artists’ books but find that collecting priorities or guidelines need to be determined prior to more active ...

Redrawing Of Narrative Boundaries: An Introduction, 2017 The Ohio State University
Redrawing Of Narrative Boundaries: An Introduction, Frederick Luis Aldama
Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature
ReDrawing of Narrative Boundaries: An Introduction provides an overview of the comics studies field as it relates to discussions and debates regarding its relationship to the study of literature and the arts. It provides a snapshot of today's comics studies field, including how the scholarly essays collected for this special issue, “A Planetary Republic of Comic Book Letters: Drawing Expansive Narrative Boundaries," work to deepen and widen our understanding of comics, and comics from all over the planet. Individually and collectively they eschew the lean toward the fill-in-the-blank (lit, film, etc.) comparisons, and instead excavate and theorize comics on ...

Going Home, 2017 Missouri State University
Going Home, Emily Susannah Budd
MSU Graduate Theses
I continue to explore the space that exists between worlds and ideology in an attempt to blur the demarcation between them. Using the everyday, I attempt to show features of the uncanny and sublime nature of common objects by including fantastic elements while maintaining an illusion of reality. Rather than showing the audience one true meaning, I offer them a lens to one of the infinite possibilities. The story is left for the observer to complete, each narrative unique and valid. As the Western viewer tends to seek out absolutes and categorical placements, I try to create a venue that ...

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
In 1688 a legal text, Renovación, was printed in Mexico City, the capital of the Viceroyalty of New Spain, that explains a twelve year trial that focuses on determining if a 16th century sculpture miraculously renewed itself. The final decision came from the Archbishop of Mexico City. A year after the book’s publication, the sculpture was recognized as miraculous. In 1699, ten years after this event, the author of Renovación wrote another book that narrates the same sculpture's history, Exaltación, but addressed a wider audience, and from a religious and pious perspective. The Exaltación was republished a ...
Changing Publishing Ecologies: A Landscape Study Of New University Presses And Academic-Led Publishing: A Report To Jisc, Janneke Adema, Graham Stone, Chris Keene
Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.
A new wave of university presses is emerging. Common characteristics are that they are open access (OA), digital first, library-based, and they often offer a smaller set of services than a traditional publisher, blurring the line between publisher and platform. In tandem, a small but notable number of academics and researchers have set up their own publishing initiatives, often demonstrating an innovative or unique approach either in workflow, peer review, technology or business model.
These new publishing initiatives have a potentially disruptive effect on the scholarly communication environment, providing new avenues for the dissemination of research outputs and acting ...
