Anthropo-Scenes, Ibel M. Sinohuiz 2017 California State University, San Bernardino

Anthropo-Scenes, Ibel M. Sinohuiz

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

ARTIST

My work is a melding of mythology and personal experience. Growing up in the harsh desert of the Coachella Valley, I found refuge in music and art. My desire to become a drummer has leaded me to create a persona called Baby Lamb. Baby Lamb is a symbolic representation, as well as a physical manifestation of this desire and she is slowly evolving, eventually becoming my alter ego. Currently, the artwork that I create is a chapter in the life story of Baby Lamb.

BABY LAMB

Baby Lamb's art shows have included a collection of relics that have ...

Breathe, Iggy Choi

Masters Theses

Everything around us is interesting, but we Keep so busy we miss out what is importance. When we first get a gadget we get excited for few months, but soon we lose interest and seeking for something new and cooler. We are constantly hurt, tired, stressed, overwhelmed, but we are not aware because we are so focused on the future. We need to reset to get back on our track. We need to stay aware and remember our first excitement in order to refresh our purpose and focus. Life would be better if we step back, breathe, and notice what ...

To express poetically the kindred ideals that resonate from home and intertwine those values to cultivate moments of reflection and acceptance. To promote encounters between past, present and future by weaving the memories of my own background and experiences, consequently unveiling a rich culture composed ...


Wielding Daggers : The Female Uncanny, Stephanie E. Hanes 2017 Rhode Island School of Design

Wielding Daggers : The Female Uncanny, Stephanie E. Hanes

Masters Theses

This thesis document is a compilation of personal essays that analyze aspects of visual culture and philosophy. I am greatly interested in how this analysis is related to women bodies; the nude in western art has a long history of being constructed for the male gaze. This significance of the identification of women with the body exposes women in our culture to learn their own particulars for self surveillance. By looking into the mirror, what is reflected back? With these essays, I am opening myself to the unknown and the unknowable, revealing the paradox of feminist and philosophical scholarship. When ...


Chemical Analysis Of Local Kansas Clay And Use In Ceramic Art, Herrick Smith 2017 Fort Hays State University

Chemical Analysis Of Local Kansas Clay And Use In Ceramic Art, Herrick Smith

John Heinrichs Scholarly and Creative Activities Day (SACAD)

Seeking to learn more about local materials and their potential use in ceramic art as well as investigating the possibility of replicating the effects of local clay using raw materials, a sample of locally harvested clay was sent to CoorsTek Analytical Laboratories. X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) processes determined the chemical contents of the sample and the list of elements was converted into a clay body recipe via the Unity Molecular Formula to target specific desirable characteristics. Further experimentation over the course of more than a year has yielded highly promising results which prove to be both useful ...
