The book you are holding, Stories Past: Found History in the Carnegie Mellon University Archives (Spring 2018), was written, edited, and published by four undergraduate students in Carnegie Mellon University's Integrative Design, Arts and Technology Network (IDeATe) program.

These four students spent a semester poring through four archive collections looking for narrative threads that would allow them to tell stories using the history of the university. The only mandate: find a connection between the past and the present.

The students engaged in design thinking exercises to help them find narrative connections between the archives. They worked with external groups ...

Existential Flux, Heather Roessler 2018 California State University, San Bernardino

Existential Flux, Heather Roessler

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

My wok is a place for meditation (through play and ritual) to grapple with ideas around what it means to be alive. I explore my own history, psychology and the nature of things, to better understand myself. I create because of the need to build a familiarity with the unknown and the uncomfortable and to accept that which is out of my control. While seeking to understand and learn from my own personal confrontations with death, I also find my own form of spirituality.

Losing my hold on graspable things, as time and change tend to bring, witnessing the dualities ...

Design As An Accompaniment To Performance Art: Incorporating Imagery To Amplify Emotional Impact, Brianna O'Neal

Masters Theses

Design as an Accompaniment to Performance Art: Incorporating Imagery to Amplify Emotional Impact is an investigation of how graphic design can be used to increase the emotional impact of a performance art piece, such as spoken word or music. The research indicates that memory plays a significant role in informing the emotion felt. The felt emotion then allows the viewer to form a perspective on the artistic piece as a whole. However, it is important to note that an individual’s memory cannot be controlled by the artist. Therefore, it is necessary for the artist to place a direct focus ...

Lack of experience and no sense of direction, causes other generations to patiently wait to see what will come of millennials. But through strong leadership development there is hope. By instilling leadership characteristics and encouraging ...

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.

Nesting Peeps, Sarah Kaplan 2018 Washington University in St. Louis

Nesting Peeps, Sarah Kaplan

Bachelor of Fine Arts Senior Papers

Nesting Peeps is book depicting a peep character residing in nests of recycled mass digital media. The book images contrast a loving bird, or peep, to a mess of mass media, opinions, arguments, and disrespectful redirect. The peeps and nests relationships focus on presenting the impact of mass digital media on how we engage with one another. Extreme amplifications of particular human social behaviors in a digital space reveal the power of visual imaging in America, and globally, to create divisions as well as broaden our perspectives. This essay further examines the contradictory content of the book Nesting Peeps, and ...
