The Influence Of Raja Ravi Varma’S Mythological Subjects In Popular Art, Rachel Cooksey 2016 SIT Study Abroad

The Influence Of Raja Ravi Varma’S Mythological Subjects In Popular Art, Rachel Cooksey

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

This paper will examine the aesthetic qualities that Raja Ravi Varma helped to introduce to mythological paintings and then to popular devotional prints with the Ravi Varma Press, as well as the influence of the aesthetic to other areas of visual culture in India. Prior to the 1993 retrospective exhibition in New Delhi on Raja Ravi Varma, little was known about his impact on the calendar prints of today. By tracing the rise of academic realism in late 19th and early 20th century India and Ravi Varma’s role within it, I gained a clearer understanding of the ...


Testing The Viability Of A 3d Workflow Using Only Adobe Creative Cloud, Matthew D. Oakes 2016 Cal Poly State University San Luis Obispo

Testing The Viability Of A 3d Workflow Using Only Adobe Creative Cloud, Matthew D. Oakes

Graphic Communication

To determine whether or not a design team or individual designer can create 3D prototypes and the subsequent finished product in a more economically sound and timely manner by purchasing and utilizing Adobe Creative Cloud applications as opposed to the standard workflow that has been established in the past 20-25 years.

A 15-question qualitative survey was submitted to twenty (20) 3D product designers/engineers that currently work in the established industry. Questions were asked to determine what the standard industry professionals are using in their 3D design workflows and if they are open to newer methods that are becoming available ...


Feedback In Concept Development: Comparing Design Disciplines, Seda Yilmaz, Shanna R. Daly 2016 Iowa State University

Feedback In Concept Development: Comparing Design Disciplines, Seda Yilmaz, Shanna R. Daly

Seda McKilligan

Design feedback is an essential pedagogical tool to promote student design progress, yet little research has focused on what instructor feedback looks like, especially across design disciplines. In this paper, we analyzed feedback provided in dance choreography, industrial design, and mechanical engineering to explore variation in feedback type across disciplines as well as how feedback type encouraged students to take convergent or divergent paths in their design processes. Many common feedback types were observed across the three disciplines, regardless of variance in context and expectations, as well as some notable distinctions. With regards to feedback directing convergent and divergent thinking ...

Leap Of Imagination: Design Heuristics Help Students Think Outside The Box And Devise Novel, More Diverse Solutions., Julia Kramer, Shanna Daly, Seda Yilmaz, Colleen Seifert, Richard Gonzalez

Seda McKilligan

Innovations depend on creative-concept generation, but engineering students often struggle to come up with ideas. They typically proffer a handful and fixate either on their first idea or existing solutions. As a result, students explore only a narrow subset of possible solutions.

How-To Understand And Create Hip-Hop Art, Joshua Wolcott 2016 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

How-To Understand And Create Hip-Hop Art, Joshua Wolcott

Graphic Communication

Typography is an essential component of Graphic Communication. The purpose of this study was to bridge typography with hip-hop art. To bridge the two disciplines, hip-hop art was presented in the context that it is actually practiced by these artists. The use of a questionnaire and a drawing lesson was intended to bring the subject within its true context. Presenting the art form in its true context enabled participants involved in the study to understand the art form with the perspective that the discipline, like typography, involves the use of lettering. Participants that were interested in drawing were able to ...

The Operational Interface, James Wheaton 2016 Rhode Island School of Design

The Operational Interface, James Wheaton

Masters Theses

The operational interface is an examination of the effects exerted by interface environments predicated on a genealogical analysis of their form and structure as a mediating apparatus. Through leveraging the embedded logic of these spaces, I develop a self-reflexive inquiry into the various ways interfaces model the cognitive faculties of its users. This inquiry is divided into a tripartite program: the application of interface logic to aesthetic tool systems, it’s modes of representation in formal terms and the appropriation of these structures for novel (re)application.The Operational

Dimensional Flatland: Beamer, Drone, Flash Drive, Scarlett Xin Meng

Masters Theses

The impact of the Internet and digitization is pervasive and pervious. Users constantly interface with a constructed virtual world of worlds, simulated by signs and representations. The web content appears to exist but only fades into oblivion. Digital imageries promise the HD real but can never be as phenomenal as our physical experience, and instead render an alternative fantasy of deceptive factuality. This is a hyperlinked network of data and pixel information that takes no solid permanent shape, and claims zero responsibility for altering and molding our consciousness in this technological fiction.

Hyphen Nation: A Reconciliation, Lynn Amhaz 2016 Rhode Island School of Design

Hyphen Nation: A Reconciliation, Lynn Amhaz

Masters Theses

As a transnational living between Beirut, Lebanon, and Providence, Rhode Island, in the United States, I use my design practice to negotiate, reconcile and inform a cultural identity defined through an equation of two different nations. I am open to what comes from this reality between. Linguistically, a hyphen simultaneously binds and divides a compound term. As a designer, I view the hyphen as a shifting axis for telling stories. In the process, I approach the hyphen as an indeterminate zone — a productive site for authoring systems and suggesting narratives linking two nations — their cultures, languages, times and geographies.


Live Edges: All Possible Adjacencies, Rebecca Leffell Koren 2016 Rhode Island School of Design

Live Edges: All Possible Adjacencies, Rebecca Leffell Koren

Masters Theses

Edge is a deceptive word. It suggests lines, borders, designations—a kind of certainty. I see edge instead as a porous adjacency—the noise at the intersection of planes that adds meaning, rather than separation. Live Edges is a design research practice that is hyperobservational and multi-planar. Equal parts training ground and methodology, what began as an effort to derive graphic form from the intangible qualities of place developed into an approach to parsing complexity.

Setting locality as my origin point, signifiers of place—materiality, behavior, orientation, architectural form—serve as catalysts for graphic response. I interpret landscape in order ...


Traversing Languagescapes, Desmond Pang 2016 Rhode Island School of Design

Traversing Languagescapes, Desmond Pang

Masters Theses

To maneuver is to design. As a multilingual graphic designer, I maneuver across different languages and their respective scripts. My work invites my audience to take a leap with me into unknown languagescapes.

Through sampling, analyzing similarities and differences, switching applications and contexts, challenging functions, inserting and overlaying recognizable visual systems as well as combining disparate language scripts, I become a guide for my audience, assisting them, regardless of mother tongue, to attain a degree of understanding when faced with an unfamiliar language.

My thesis asserts the critical role graphic designers play in demystifying and cracking language barriers. Every graphic ...
