The Short Story And The Photographic: Twentieth-Century Imagetexts In And Of The Americas, Lucienne Muller 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Short Story And The Photographic: Twentieth-Century Imagetexts In And Of The Americas, Lucienne Muller

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation examines the visuality of the short story from an intermedial point of view, that is, with a focus on the relationship between the short story and the photographic visual. This analysis draws from photographic theory and from the writings of photographer and writer Julio Cortazar whose philosophy puts forward the idea of a reader who becomes the inventive co-creator of the fictional work.


Leveraging Sound, Space And Visual Art In An Installation, Ryan Karle 2017 Claremont McKenna College

Leveraging Sound, Space And Visual Art In An Installation, Ryan Karle

CMC Senior Theses

Because of my distrust for self-expression through verbal language, my pursuit thus far in art has been to discover a satisfactory means of self-expression. In study of the work I’ve created across all mediums, through poetry, music and visual art, this desire for a satisfactory outlet of self-expression has resulted in a drive to create meaning through combining mediums. Throughout this semester, my interest in mixed mediums has resulted largely in experimentation with the combination of music and visual art, as well as exploring the standalone merit of each. This also entails a study of their overlaps, cooperative influence ...

Iain Muirhead, Iain Muirhead 2016 Claremont Colleges

Iain Muirhead, Iain Muirhead

CGU MFA Theses

Artist IAIN MUIRHEAD seeks possibility in a world of massive change. His work cultivates instability and chases an ungrounded experience. Systemic complexity and creative destruction are characteristic. Muirhead uses paint, objects, photography, installation, and video to break apart and reconfigure form and space. Terror often looms. Entropy gives way to emergence.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott is a classic work of American literature that has been adapted into many different forms since its original publication in 1868. This essay analyzes the effects of adapting a novel, or written medium, to a visual medium such as a film or stage production. Particularly, it looks at Alcott’s Little Women in relation to Allan Knee’s 2005 Broadway musical adaptation of the story. This article begins with a discussion about the challenges that come with adapting a written medium to a visual medium, and then uses Little Women as a case study ...


Beyond The Stage: The Influence Of Theatre In Walt Disney Imagineering, Cassaundra Soumas 2016 Chapman University

Beyond The Stage: The Influence Of Theatre In Walt Disney Imagineering, Cassaundra Soumas

Student Research Day Abstracts and Posters

Walt Disney Imagineering is the head design team behind Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. Their experts and creators spearhead all projects, from shows and attractions to architecture and locations. Their groundbreaking work has put them at the forefront of the Themed Entertainment Industry. While they have become trendsetters in the world of entertainment, much of their foundation is still based in the world of theatre. Through this thesis, I will examine just how much of an influence theatre has had in the foundation of Walt Disney Imagineering. From simple verbiage to designs, theatre is present in many levels. I will ...

LIVD

Layout, imagery, and editing: Meredith James

LIVD is a semi/annual publication produced in the Pacific Northwest, dedicated to the intersection of art, design, culture and how these influence lived experience.

LIVD pays hommage to the inspiring and idealistic efforts of the early twentieth century avant-garde, balancing the academic with the personal and experimental.

Issue 15.2 includes contributions responding to the following prompt: screwing up, messing up, vulnerability, shame... that sort of thing. Why isn't the prompt simply: failure? Because something strange happens when you ask people to talk about failure, they start talking about something else entirely ...


French Women In Art: Reclaiming The Body Through Creation/Les Femmes Artistes Françaises : La Réclamation Du Corps À Travers La Création, Liatris Hethcoat 2016 Chapman University

French Women In Art: Reclaiming The Body Through Creation/Les Femmes Artistes Françaises : La Réclamation Du Corps À Travers La Création, Liatris Hethcoat

Student Research Day Abstracts and Posters

The research I have conducted for my French Major Senior Thesis is a culmination of my passion for and studies of both French language and culture and the history and practice of Visual Arts. I have examined, across the history of art, the representation of women, and concluded that until the 20th century, these representations have been tools employed by the makers of history and those at the top of the patriarchal system, used to control women’s images and thus women themselves. I survey these representations, which are largely created by men—until the 20th century. I ...


Jaguar Sun, Anya Nadal 2016 Claremont Colleges

Jaguar Sun, Anya Nadal

The STEAM Journal

Cymatics, is derived from a Greek word, meaning "wave", is a subset of modal vibrational phenomena. The term was coined by Hans Jenny, a Swiss follower of the philosophical school known as anthroposophy. This is a visual representation of the frequency field. I created this piece from acrylic on canvas based on the subtle energies I can see and feel.


Cold Hard Facts, Paul Kelley 2016 Claremont Graduate University

Cold Hard Facts, Paul Kelley

The STEAM Journal

COLD HARD FACTS is an ephemeral installation composed of a projector, digital images and ice. The work continues my interest in having the viewer slow down to have a more thoughtful and absorptive experience with the work and surrounding space. With a short-lived duration, the piece considers the transitory nature of things and how truths can be misconstrued as facts, whereas truths are malleable and facts are not. They are cold, hard and indifferent.


Inner Beauty, Kayla Darbyshire 2016 Bellarmine University

Inner Beauty, Kayla Darbyshire

The STEAM Journal

The artist references images captured by electron microscope photography of Dopamine, DNA, and the process of Mitosis (specifically occurring in the human body). Through the use of photoshop the artist was able to manipulate the images of Dopamine, DNA, and Mitosis to create low polygonal artwork. The artist created 15,000-30,000 individual triangles, piecing them together using photoshop to create the images that they were referencing. The body is an amazing spectacle rarely looked at from within by artists. Many find beauty on the surface of the body, but when explored further, the body has much more to offer ...


Maker Education: The Steam Playground, Amanda Opperman 2016 Wonderlic; Helios Education Lab

Maker Education: The Steam Playground, Amanda Opperman

The STEAM Journal

Educators who are committed to teaching STEAM in their classes and programs will be inspired and encouraged by the capabilities for multidisciplinary instruction and project based learning offered by an emerging pedagogy known as Maker Education. While making was previously thought of as STEM-focused, it can easily be integrated across all subjects. Maker Ed's Resource Library has a section on Projects and Learning Approaches, which includes many cross-curricular project ideas that expand this model of education from STEM to STEAM and beyond.


Pineapple, 022, Conversation – Behind The Cover Art, Jesse W. Standlea 2016 St. Margaret's Episcopal School

Pineapple, 022, Conversation – Behind The Cover Art, Jesse W. Standlea

The STEAM Journal

Many sources date the pit-firing process as a 30,000 plus years-old ceramic firing technique. Every year I take my AP 3D Design class to the beach to fire ceramic pieces using this method. Being a contemporary sculptor who shows in Los Angeles I have always appreciated pit-fired pieces but never used one in my own art practice until now. A connection between the first method of firing ceramics and my art practice seemed unrelated. The title for my piece might add to the disconnect; and yet these seemingly unrelated elements force the work into a place where the artistic ...

The Year-Long Adventures Of The Blue Shoes & Their Friends, Michael R. Hill 2016 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The Year-Long Adventures Of The Blue Shoes & Their Friends, Michael R. Hill

Zea E-Books

While participating in a Teacher Workshop organized by Georgina Valverde at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013, Michael Hill began a one-year artistic and pedagogical odyssey making original images (always featuring some aspect of one or more athletic shoes) and posting them daily to a visual blog he created to help kick-start writing projects among the many student athletes he tutored at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He started the year self-identifying as “scholar/teacher,” but at year’s end Michael looked in the mirror and said, OK, still “scholar/ teacher,” but also “artist.” Here are the workshop organizer’s ...


Re-Constructing The Choreographic Studio Of João Fiadeiro Through Animated Infographic Films, Stephan Jürgens, Francisco Henriques, Carla Fernandes 2016 New University of Lisbon

Re-Constructing The Choreographic Studio Of João Fiadeiro Through Animated Infographic Films, Stephan Jürgens, Francisco Henriques, Carla Fernandes

PARtake: The Journal of Performance as Research

The starting point for this article is an artist-led practice developed by choreographer João Fiadeiro during the past two decades, which has been designated as "Composition in Real Time" (CTR). The interesting point about this methodology is that it has been applied in performance composition and in arts education by its author himself; but also in such diverse fields as anthropology, sociology, neurosciences, and economy by scientists and academics in collaboration with Fiadeiro. The authors of this article have conducted a long-lasting case study on the artistic process of Fiadeiro in the framework of an ERC-funded interdisciplinary arts and cognition ...


End Game, 2016 Vocational Training Council

End Game

SIGNED: The Magazine of The Hong Kong Design Institute

2012 has long been the subject of myths and speculation because it appeared to be the year in which the world was supposed to be destroyed, according to some scholars of the Mayan calendar. So far this year has not seen a global cataclysm but, as Summer Cao reports, it has inspired a hit movie and a popular HKDI show.
