Still, Unfolding, Ramolen Mencero Laruan

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Together with my Master of Fine Art thesis exhibition, still, unfolding, at Zalucky Contemporary (Toronto, Ontario), this dossier constitutes the following accompanying components: a comprehensive artist statement, documented artwork, an interview with artist Erika DeFreitas, and a curriculum vitae. These components contextualize my subject-position, and outline theoretical research, motivations, and reflections that drive my work. I expand on the diasporic experience, politics of knowledge, and the autobiographical genre as they are linked methodologies in the retrieval of immigrant histories. The fusion of autobiography and fiction becomes a hopeful approach in challenging forgotten or omitted history and confronts the expectations that ...


Virtual Temari: Artistically Inspired Mathematics, Carl Giuffre, Lee Stemkoski 2020 Adelphi University

Virtual Temari: Artistically Inspired Mathematics, Carl Giuffre, Lee Stemkoski

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

Technology can be a significant aide in understanding and appreciating geometry, beyond theoretical considerations. Both fiber art and technology have been employed as a significant aide and an inspiring vessel in education to explore geometry. The Japanese craft known as temari, or "hand-balls", combines important artistic, spiritual, and familial values, and provides one such approach to exploring geometry. Mathematically, the artwork of temari may be classified based on whether they are inspired by polyhedra and discrete patterns or by periodic functional curves. The resulting designs of these categories provide an ancient vantage for displaying spherical patterns. We illustrate a technique ...

Kofifi/Covfefe: How The Costumes Of "Sophiatown" Bring 1950s South Africa To Western Massachusetts In 2020, Emma Hollows 2020 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Kofifi/Covfefe: How The Costumes Of "Sophiatown" Bring 1950s South Africa To Western Massachusetts In 2020, Emma Hollows

Masters Theses

This thesis paper reflects upon the costume design process taken by Emma Hollows to produce a realist production of the Junction Avenue Theatre Company’s musical Sophiatown at the Augusta Savage Gallery at the University of Massachusetts in May 2020. Sophiatown follows a household forcibly removed from their homes by the Native Resettlement Act of 1954 amid apartheid in South Africa. The paper discusses her attempts as a costume designer to strike a balance between replicating history and making artistic changes for theatre, while always striving to create believable characters.


Experimental Design And Evaluation Of A Moisture Responsive Sports Bra, Adriana Gorea, Fatma Baytar, Eulanda A. Sanders 2020 University of Delaware

Experimental Design And Evaluation Of A Moisture Responsive Sports Bra, Adriana Gorea, Fatma Baytar, Eulanda A. Sanders

Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management Publications

Women prefer to wear a sports bra not only for exercising, but also during resting and daily activities, highlighting deficiencies in current sports bra designs. The purpose of this study was to design, develop, and evaluate a sports bra that offers responsive behavior, in terms of breast support and comfort, both during rest and running conditions. A biomimetic design framework guided the conceptual phase, and moisture responsive plant biomechanics offered a feasible functional model. Fourteen sports bras were developed and wear- tested using college athletes. The moisture responsive panels inside the bra absorbed the sweat generated during running, making the ...


The Fabric Of Gifts: Culture And Politics Of Giving And Exchange In Archaic Greece, Beate Wagner-Hasel 2020 Leibniz University of Hannover

The Fabric Of Gifts: Culture And Politics Of Giving And Exchange In Archaic Greece, Beate Wagner-Hasel

Zea E-Books

When the Greek leader Agamemnon took for himself the woman awarded to Achilles as his spoils of battle, the warrior’s resulting anger and outrage nearly cost his side the war. Beyond the woman herself was what she symbolised — a matter of esteem rather than material value. In Archaic Greece the practices of gift giving existed alongside an economy of market relations. The value of gifts and the meanings of exchange in ancient societies are fundamental to the debates of 19th-century economists, to Marcel Mauss’s famous Essai sur le don (1923-4), and to the definition of experiential value by ...


In The Garden, Clare Samani 2020 Louisiana State University

In The Garden, Clare Samani

LSU Master's Theses

My work has focused largely on identity and self-expression, primarily through clothing, pattern, and color as a symbolic content. Having heavily investigated historical costume and clothing from various periods, my attention is drawn to the highly sculptural and ornamented garments of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the rococo, and the baroque. In these colorful and puffed garments, I am attracted to the similarities that I see in nature. How we adorn ourselves mimics various flowers, plants and animals in the pursuit of desire and procreation. Focusing on fabric manipulation, printmaking and sculpture, In the Garden coalesces into ambiguous sculptures that ...

Representaciones Textiles En Los Iconos De La Litoescultura Tiwanaku: Distribución Y Significado / Textile Representations In The Iconography Of The Tiwanaku Lithic Sculpture: Distribution And Meaning, Carolina Aguero, Arturo Martínez

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

Se presenta la síntesis de una investigación destinada a identificar representaciones textiles en los iconos de la litoescultura Tiwanaku. Previamente ya habíamos usado un análisis componencial para segregar motivos y elementos en sus tres principales figuras: Personaje Frontal, Personajes de Perfil y Banda Faja. Luego se ubicaron sus referentes textiles en colecciones arqueológicas de Chile, Perú y Bolivia para precisar patrones de distribución espacial de las prendas y su iconografía en las distintas zonas que estuvieron en la órbita de Tiwanaku. Además, este estudio ha sido complementado con una exploración de los saberes ancestrales acerca de los iconos que están ...


Two-Headed Serpents And Rayed Heads: Precedents And Reinterpretations In Paracas Necropolis Imagery, Ann H. Peters 2020 University of Pennsylvania

Two-Headed Serpents And Rayed Heads: Precedents And Reinterpretations In Paracas Necropolis Imagery, Ann H. Peters

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

The Necropolis of Wari Kayan and other tombs of the Paracas Necropolis mortuary tradition present an astonishing diversity of textile styles, and an even greater diversity of imagery. More than 100 different motifs can be distinguished and tracked among the documented mortuary contexts. While is it not likely that our sample of 45 mummy bundles includes all important variants of any particular motif, in many cases it is possible to propose a sequence of reinterpretations of a key icon. By documenting the known assemblage of images and artifacts we can perceive what icons and styles are predominant, recurrent or unusual ...

Recontextualizando El Patrimonio Arqueológico: Los Textiles Paracas Descubiertos Por Engel En Cabezas Largas, Jessica Lévy Contreras

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

Resumen El archivo de Frédéric Engel, arqueólogo suizo quien trabajó en la costa sur del Perú entre los años 1950 y 1960, representa un patrimonio documental importante conservado en el Museo Nacional de Antropología, Biodiversidad, Agricultura y Alimentación (MUNABA) de la Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina en Lima. Gracias a la revisión de los registros gráficos y fotográficos de las excavaciones realizadas en Cabezas Largas, sitio ubicado en la Península de Paracas, y particularmente de los materiales hallados en la tumba T.27, este artículo presenta los principales textiles asociados a la parafernalia ritual de siete fardos funerarios para tratar ...

Una Prenda Triangular Con Plumas En La Colección Del Museo De Sitio De Pachacámac, Lourdes Chocano Mena 2020 Museo Nacional de Arqueología, Antropología e Historia de Perú

Una Prenda Triangular Con Plumas En La Colección Del Museo De Sitio De Pachacámac, Lourdes Chocano Mena

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

Las formas habituales de los tejidos son la cuadrangular o la rectangular. Sin embargo, existen casos de tejidos como los paños trapezoidales de algodón usados como prendas de vestir (taparrabos, turbantes, pañuelos). Aquí presentamos un estudio de una prenda de forma triangular hallada en Pachacámac. Su hallazgo no recibió mayor atención, pese a su gran dimensión y la manera de cómo ha sido confeccionada, es muy particular: sus bordes están recamados de plumas anaranjadas y moradas en hileras. Explicaremos la confección de cada una de sus partes, haremos comparaciones con otras vestimentas de forma similar, y propondremos las posibles funciones ...


Middle Horizon Textiles From Chimu Capac, Supe Valley, Peru, Amy Oakland 2020 California State University - East Bay

Middle Horizon Textiles From Chimu Capac, Supe Valley, Peru, Amy Oakland

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

This article presents an overview of the textiles Max Uhle collected between November 4 and December 3, 1904 in the Middle Horizon cemetery at Chimu Capac in the Supe Valley, Peru. The total collection of objects numbers over 830 with 278 textiles including woven fragments, complete garments, woven and painted pouches, and over 155 painted textiles. The article discusses a sample of Chimu Capac textiles included in Uhle’s Supe field Notebook 67, in his hand-written Supe report, and textiles listed in the Supe Berkeley catalog. The Chimu Capac textiles compare with collections of Middle Horizon funerary objects made in ...

El Tapiz Colonial Con Tocapus Del Museo Nacional De Arqueología, Antropología E Historia Del Perú, Mónica Solórzano Gonzales

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

Se estudia en este texto un extraordinario tapiz que resalta por una decoración que combina símbolos incaicos, con aspecto de tocapus, con una cruz cristiana. Forma parte de una investigación mayor dedicada al tapiz andino colonial próxima a divulgarse. Actualmente, no se conoce otro ejemplar semejante en el Perú ni en el extranjero y probablemente se trata de uno de los tapices coloniales más antiguos. Tuvimos la fortuna de darlo a conocer en los seminarios del Doctorado del Programa de Estudios Andinos de la Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú y en otros eventos desde el año 2014. Se halla en ...

Los Tocapus De Llullaillaco, Beatriz Carbonell 2020 Universidad Fasta Patagonia Argentina

Los Tocapus De Llullaillaco, Beatriz Carbonell

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

En el hallazgo de Llullaillaco los motivos de tocapu y cumbi se reiteran en importantes textiles que visten a los niños ofrendados y en otros en forma de miniatura vistiendo a las estatuillas que conforman el ajuar. Tanto las miniaturas antropomorfas de metal (oro y plata) como las de mullu (spondylus) están vestidas con uncu (túnica), yacolla (manto) y llautu (o vincha) y llevan una bolsa o chuspa con los mismos diseños que las prendas que visten los niños. Nuestra comprensión del significado de tocapu se basa en cómo ha sido descrito por los cronistas, asociado a veces íntimamente con ...


Ancient Peruvian Textiles In The Vatican Museums And Their Link To The Musée Du Trocadéro Collections, Jean-François Genotte 2020 The Vatican Museums

Ancient Peruvian Textiles In The Vatican Museums And Their Link To The Musée Du Trocadéro Collections, Jean-François Genotte

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

The Vatican Museums keep a small collection of about sixty textile fragments mostly Lambayeque, Chimu and Chancay dating back to Late Intermediate Period. Unfortunately, the archaeological provenance of these items is not known. This paper offers a first overview of the history of the collection, describing its contents and, in more details, its most interesting fabrics. We will then suggest that some fragments of the Vatican collection might have been part of textiles once kept in the Musée du Trocadéro, and nowadays preserved in the Quai Branly Museum in Paris.

The Pre-Columbian Textile Collection Of The German Textile Museum Krefeld, Katalin Nagy

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

The German Textile Museum in Krefeld houses a considerable collection of pre-Columbian textiles. Most originate from graves in the narrow arid area of the Peruvian coast. The original aim was to build an assemblage with the pedagogical and methodological intention of presenting a broad range of very different textile techniques in the education for the future textile workers of the industry in said region. With this intention in mind samples were gathered, and soon a few samples turned into an impressive collection in which almost all established pre-Columbian cultures and periods of the area of the Central Andes are represented ...

Signos Comunes En Los Textiles Andinos Y Los Mesoamericanos, Victòria Solanilla

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

Entre los recientes estudios sobre textiles Andinos, comienza a ser frecuente encontrar quienes se dedican a describir además de las técnicas, sus iconografías. Como eran sociedades ágrafas, nos hace pensar que con aquellas imágenes nos quisieron dejar su historia y pensamiento. En el caso de Mesoamérica, se podría decir lo mismo de las técnicas e imágenes, pero en este caso, las sociedades que los tejieron sí tenían manera de comunicarse a través de sus lenguajes escritos. No se han conservado tantos tejidos a causa del clima por las condiciones no favorables para la conservación de materiales orgánicos, pero tenemos muchos ...
