Hackers And The Dark Net: A Look Into Hacking And The Deep Web, Danielle LeFrancois, Christina Reilly, Russell Munn, Andy Strasel, Jess Garcia, Lindsey Chiles 2018 James Madison University

Hackers And The Dark Net: A Look Into Hacking And The Deep Web, Danielle Lefrancois, Christina Reilly, Russell Munn, Andy Strasel, Jess Garcia, Lindsey Chiles

James Madison Undergraduate Research Journal (JMURJ)

The dark web is notorious for the illicit activities it facilitates, including human trafficking, narcotics and weapons sales, and illegally obtained information transfers. In order to combat this constant, invisible threat to security, governments and experts have called for tougher legislation and increased surveillance. But on the opposite end of all this crime and villainy lie persecuted groups who use the dark web and the anonymity it affords to protect themselves from retaliation. This article uses Atavist’s digital storytelling medium to explore how hackers “hack” the web, ethical questions surrounding the dark web, and policy solutions to cyber security.


Compost Rich Of Resistance: Wayfinding In Tel Aviv And Jerusalem, Taylor K. Miller 2018 University of Arizona

Compost Rich Of Resistance: Wayfinding In Tel Aviv And Jerusalem, Taylor K. Miller

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

It is not common to travel to a region searching for what is wrong and askew. But this is precisely how I move through greater Palestine-Israel each time I visit. Explosions and incessant pummeling have forced the sidewalks and retaining walls to heave–Styrofoam slabs serve as an equally hasty and hideous shim. But in this, there is hope. Even where the sidewalk momentarily ends–likely that in just a few months a new road, deeper into the West Bank will be built–it is glaring that these foundations are laid at an unsustainable pace. In a land where the ...


It Can't Leave You The Way It Finds You, Kyle Nobles 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

It Can't Leave You The Way It Finds You, Kyle Nobles

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design

There’s a beautiful innocence in childhood where, although the world is large and new, it feels as though your place in it and the roles that you play are stable and unchanging. In our youth, outside of extraordinary circumstances, we are unburdened by the awareness that everything and everyone is subject to radical change—including our own sense of self. As we grow older though, looking back it becomes clear that this was never the case. In a matter of years, you can change so dramatically that you did not even notice as you became an entirely new person ...


Hearing Through Walls, Bradley Marshall 2018 East Tennessee State University

Hearing Through Walls, Bradley Marshall

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The photographer discusses work in “Hearing Through Walls”, a Masters of Fine Arts thesis exhibit held at downtown Tipton Gallery from February 19th through March 2nd, 2018. The exhibition consists of 15 archival inkjet prints and one two-channel video piece, representing the artists three-year exploration into narrative forms in image making. Using non-traditional approaches to photographic portraiture and experimental exhibition layout, the artist forms questions around themes of domesticity, lost youth, and American masculinity. Among these themes is an investigation into photographic issues, including the cultural role that photographs play in perpetuating, miming, and disrupting the facades of everyday life ...


Are You Still Recording?, Rachel Wright 2018 University of Colorado, Boulder

Are You Still Recording?, Rachel Wright

Art Practices MFA Theses

Are You Still Recording? Is an experimental video installation that re-contextualizes an archive of home movies, including 16mm film, 8mm film, Super 8, video and sound recordings, as well as voicemail messages from my father and other natural and instrumental sounds. I am investigating the ways in which personal narrative can underscore the collective narrative through the format of experimental video, installation, and writing. I reference and examine ideas relating to memory, time, nature, recording, and notions of the collective. I am also interested in themes and relationships between home movie and ethnography, as well as notions of identity, materiality ...


For Wintonbury: An Expansion Of Narrative And Painting, Cassaundra Kayla Sanderson 2018 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

For Wintonbury: An Expansion Of Narrative And Painting, Cassaundra Kayla Sanderson

Theses and Dissertations

In March 2017, I began planning the narratives of what would become my Thesis Exhibition. One year later marked my installation of the exhibit: For Wintonbury, located at the Fine Art Center Gallery at the University of Arkansas.

A merging of the visual arts and literary fiction, For Wintonbury offers a more immersive experience in storytelling. The painted scenes, drawings, three-dimensional compositions, and short stories each serve their own purposes in presenting partial glimpses into the longer narratives of Wintonbury. Through multiple media and entry points, the viewer is given the choice in which sequence and manner to take in ...


Milk, Lindsey Heiden 2018 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Milk, Lindsey Heiden

Theses and Dissertations

My work is a composition of contemporary fairy tales of visual, written and oral forms. I examined the historical evolution of formula, from animal milk, to powder formula and now to a combination of animal milk, human milk and powder. The current scientific research being done with formula and animals, coupled with a fairy tale is the inspiration behind my current tale. The importance of women both in regards to the historical development of keeping a cultural tradition alive through oral tale-telling and the much larger role of keeping humankind alive through reproduction and birth, further build the base that ...

In-Between: The Spaces Of Modernity, Elisa Fabris Valenti 2018 Louisiana State University

In-Between: The Spaces Of Modernity, Elisa Fabris Valenti

LSU Master's Theses

During the past three years as a graduate student, I have experienced loneliness. Having recently emigrated from Italy, I have often asked myself why I am experiencing such hard times adjusting to a different country. My thesis explores this question. Referring to Marc Augé’s idea of non-place, I have chosen a geographical and spatial starting point to approach my work. Italian cities are built around the central piazza where social, political, and economic life revolves. In my thesis, I depict American spaces that lack specific location and create solitude within the urban corridors. Private feelings, such as loneliness, are ...

In Between, Wansoo Kim 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

In Between, Wansoo Kim

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design

In my eyes, the world is composed of both revealed things and hidden things. I interpret my surroundings based on this idea, seeking to realize my ignorance and awareness. With this in mind, I create objects in which dichotomous ideas are present, and use their physically revealed and hidden aspects in order to represent the greater human struggle to see and understand what is hidden from us.

The notion of inside and outside is one of my particular subjects. Upon observing an object or a structure, we see only its external reality. I aim to present the unobservable, often presenting ...


A Synthesis Of Structures, Patrick Kingshill 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

A Synthesis Of Structures, Patrick Kingshill

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design

I create compositional structures based on a curated catalog of physical and visual relationships that I have cultivated from my daily life. These compositions are intuitive expressions related to my fascination with the many facets of the built and designed world. My arrangements are curious and intriguing and they unify the expansive diversity of my formal inquiries into a cohesive visual and contemplative experience.

Ceramic and wood are my primary mediums. My interest in woodworking is both aesthetically motivated and nostalgic. I was born in a region of northern California that is historically known for its native giant sequoia and ...


Time And Lines, Richard Pecos Pryor 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Time And Lines, Richard Pecos Pryor

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” -Annie Dillard

I want to make art that is worthwhile, that shares something important. This desire often overwhelms and hinders me from starting projects. I find myself questioning the purpose of art altogether. Yet, once I relinquish control into action—just simply start and keep going—the unforeseen meaning eventually presents itself.

Drawings begin with lines. Partnered with curiosity, I began this series by exploring the potential of drawing materials. How far and for how long can a single sharpened pencil last? What does a mile of ...

Making Visible: More Of The Picture, Sarah Slavick 2018 Lesley University

Making Visible: More Of The Picture, Sarah Slavick

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

In Linda Nochlin’s essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?, “ she demonstrates how, for centuries, institutional and societal structures had made it “impossible for women to achieve artistic excellence, or success, on the same footing as men, no matter what the potency of their so-called talent, or genius.” As the Guerilla Girls noted, only 1 woman had a solo museum show in NY in 1985, and, in 2015, 30 years later, it wasn’t much better with 1 at the Guggenheim, Met and Whitney, and 2 at MOMA. On International Women’s Day, March 1, 2017, I ...


Speculative Performance Meets Immersive Learning: Lessons Of Drylab2023, Adriene Jenik 2018 Arizona State University

Speculative Performance Meets Immersive Learning: Lessons Of Drylab2023, Adriene Jenik

PARtake: The Journal of Performance as Research

Drylab2023, an experiment in “immersive learning,” was conducted from May 13-June 11, 2017. Eight participants lived for 30 days in a remote desert outpost limited to 4 gallons of water per person per day to meet all water needs (drinking, cooking, washing, hygiene, etc) while subsisting on a water-wise diet. Participants were charged to live within a “near future scenario” of water scarcity (2023); modelling how to manage a limited vital resource: fresh water. During the experiment, narrative progress could be tracked as it unfolded through online posts at drylab2023.net.

This article argues that: 1) speculative performance is a ...
