Journey Through The Wasteland, 2018 Rhode Island School of Design
Journey Through The Wasteland, Songlin Li
I started planning this book at the end of last year, because I had to write it for my thesis, and also because I saw this as an opportunity to create, like making artwork. But the difference is that this does not look like my usual art, being only a book comprised of words and images.
From the end of last year to the beginning of this year, I experienced a terrible spiritual disillusionment and was caught in a cycle of depression and anxiety. Even though I was prepared to write this book last fall, I only really started in …
The Bird's Eye View, 2018 Rhode Island School of Design
The Bird's Eye View, Ipek Kosova
How can we make sense of the borders between destruction and construction, between matter and ourselves, at the same time? How habitable is a border? How does sound echo and vibrate on the border? Are borders a space of segregation or dialogue? Where is the border between our brain and our own voice? Between the transparent and opaque? Between the paint and the floor? Between the receiver and transmitter? Between the eye and the tear? Are borders monuments of extinctions of human contact?
The self defines itself as bordered and limited. The moments where destructive events seem like a ruin …
Golden In Glass, 2018 Bowling Green State University
Golden In Glass, Emily Price
The hymn chosen for this glass piece is “Jerusalem the Golden” which was written by Bernard of Cluny in the 12th century and set to music by John Neale in the 19th century. The original tune given to the hymn is known as “Ewing” and was written by Alexander Ewing. Although this hymn is not used in all hymnals and is not as widely known as hymns like “Amazing Grace,” it is a lovely, hopeful one that paints a picture of the wonders of heaven.
Hymn singing is an important part of the Christian church service and has …

Perceptual Alchemy, 2017 Rhode Island School of Design
Perceptual Alchemy, Evan Voelbel
The farther we peer into the depths of human consciousness, the subatomic realm of quantum physics or the vast expanse of the observable universe, the more our notion of an objective physical reality or a predetermined, public, external world is challenged. With each new door we open, an entirely new set of questions is revealed. The world we perceive is never a direct representation, but even knowing how constructed our perception of an external reality is, are we capable of letting go of it? Through perceptual alchemy, my work probes the threshold between our constructed reality and the ‘external world’, …
How Long Can You Hold Your Breath?, 2017 Rhode Island School of Design
How Long Can You Hold Your Breath?, Felicia Leroy
I began freediving, a sport in which one dives as deep as possible on single breath hold, as a way to approach the inaccessible space of the deep, to expand my understanding of the unobtainable.
This space (the deep) seemed to me to be representative of something that is totally unknown, its power existing in its inaccessibility, in its un-know-ability.
Through training/experiential data collection and using human physiology at depth as a framework, this thesis work book explores a single breath hold to the other side.
Work made in support of this exploration touches on darkness, depth, the edge, the …
Multiple And Moving, 2017 Rhode Island School of Design
Multiple And Moving, Maia Chao
This document maps my negotiation of the art practice as experienced in school. It is a record of development, evaluation, narration, articulation, reflection, argumentation, and continual redefinition. I consider the physical and social realities of the studio practice as they relate to my needs, values, and desires on a personal and global scale. Flitting between the mundane and the fundamental, the center and the margins, this thesis reflects my mental topography as a series of parts whose relations to each other are multiple and moving.
