The Difference Between A Duck, Shelby D. Meier 2017 Southern Methodist University

The Difference Between A Duck, Shelby D. Meier

Art Theses and Dissertations

. In this paper I will address each work from my exhibition the difference between a duck individually to address concepts and references in each work to elucidate some of the connections I have made between the all the works. Concepts and references range from the irony of the 19th century arts and crafts movement, the possibilities of a blackholes, the subjective value of souvenirs, Tibetan prayer wheels and much more. And they all seem to add up to nothing, which for me is a respite in the comedy of trying to make sense of a world that doesn’t ...


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)

Think about how you made the decision to push those boundaries. Remember how taking that risk in pursuit of an unknown made you feel, because it is that thrill that drives my artistic practice. Through my thesis ...


Black Matter, kahlil Irving 2017 Washington University in St. Louis

Black Matter, Kahlil Irving

Graduate School of Art Theses

History as we know it, is inherited. Racism, fascism, white supremacy, and Eurocentric dominance have been presented as normal and acceptable within our society for many years. This has allowed police officers to execute Black American’s and not be acquitted for their horrendous crimes. As an activist I want to challenge the status quo. As an artist I am interested in investigating how I can present ideas embody or reflect contemporary issues and concerns. Using different colors can aggressively change how an object is perceived. Historical objects hold many important.

I explore many mediums, but an anchor material that ...
