“Di-atomic”- Embossed Collagraph
My interest in art came from my father, who is a retired police officer. He is also an artist, who used to draw composite sketches and sculpt forensic facial reconstructions for his department. Much of what I know today, came from the basic art skills he taught me from childhood in both drawing and sculpting.
Before college I served in the Air Force as a member of Security Forces, where I was trained in the use of 7 different weapons, as well as explosives. It was a challenging adventure in my life, that also gave me ...
Motive Through Automotive Compassionately Criticizing The Desires Of Car Culture, 2017 University of New Orleans
Motive Through Automotive Compassionately Criticizing The Desires Of Car Culture, Erika R. Lehrmann
University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations
My artwork represents my admiration and criticisms of car culture I have gathered throughout my personal experiences beginning at a very early age. The work exists in the form of drawings, paintings, prints, collage and sculpture. This work is created through the elements of personal narrative, desires, obsessions, and questions surrounding car culture and its influences. My intention to refurbish the icons of this culture has involved creating work that is both obsessive and critical for personal exploration and understanding of past memories.
3d Printing – An Insider’S Perspective, 2017 Make Whale
3d Printing – An Insider’S Perspective, Siddharth Sah
The STEAM Journal
The 3D printing market globally is still at its infancy, - or some might argue that there isn’t really a market yet. The knowledge of 3D printing design is still largely limited to engineering design – not product design. At MakeWhale, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of the application of 3D printing technology to consumer products resulting in a beautiful mix of technology and art.

Matter Under Mind, 2017 East Tennessee State Universtiy
Matter Under Mind, John F. Lause
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
The artist discusses the work for his Masters of Fine Arts exhibition, Mind under Matter, held at the Tipton Gallery in downtown Johnson City, Tennessee. Exhibition dates are from March 27th through April 5th 2017. ‘Matter under Mind’ explores the balance of control and non-control within the art-making process. This technique creates an automatic dialogue resulting in abstraction guided by the subconscious. The title ‘Matter under Mind’ is a slight play on the phrase ‘mind over matter’ emphasizing how matter/material is manipulated by the mind through the making of artwork, and within the mind’s eye or imagination.

The poet Ben Okri wrote: “Stories are the secret reservoir of values: change the stories individuals and nations live by and tell themselves, and you change the individuals and nations.” (Stibbe)

In 1688 a legal text, Renovación, was printed in Mexico City, the capital of the Viceroyalty of New Spain, that explains a twelve year trial that focuses on determining if a 16th century sculpture miraculously renewed itself. The final decision came from the Archbishop of Mexico City. A year after the book’s publication, the sculpture was recognized as miraculous. In 1699, ten years after this event, the author of Renovación wrote another book that narrates the same sculpture's history, Exaltación, but addressed a wider audience, and from a religious and pious perspective. The Exaltación was republished a ...

Between Rock And Breeze, Lena Schmid

Flesh And Blood, Clayton Petras
Graduate School of Art Theses
In my work, I look for ways to visualize and document the degenerative mental disease of Parkinson’s and transform it into portrayals of the disease itself, its effects, and those it afflicts. Being a physical breakdown of the body, both popular culture and my own corporal understanding influence my interpretation and representation. This document outlines those influences and their buildup towards a shared understanding of the interests behind the work, as well as implies what the work does through these contexts.
How do we give identity to a disease that is difficult to diagnose or view on medical technology ...

To The Moon And Back, 2017 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville
To The Moon And Back, Michael Tyler Pennekamp
Theses and Dissertations
Almost fifty years after the Apollo 11 mission, the moon landing remains one of humankind’s most remarkable technological achievements. On the lunar surface, the Eagle’s flight crew left behind an American flag, mementos honoring those who lost their lives in the quest for such an achievement, and a plaque reading, “Here men from the planet Earth set foot upon the moon. July 1969 A.D. We came in peace for all mankind.” Despite overwhelming proof of this achievement—radio transmissions, photographs, film, rock and soil samples—a sizable minority of Americans continue to view the Apollo 11 moon ...

Two-Faced And Vulnerable, Stephanie Wright

A helpless calf suspended by a balloon. A dog attempting to focus through a set of blinders. Vultures circling over an abandoned bed. The situations in which these animals find themselves might seem, at first glance, quirky or ambiguous. But we can easily empathize with their perceivable state. Through fables, myths, religion, everyday interaction, and animal husbandry, we have made animals and emotions recognizable metaphors for humankind. These animals address broader human experience; certainly the notions of “human nature” and culture are themselves human constructs. We self-consciously work to define our existence through the separation of the concept of “society ...

A venomous void pierces the present.
Emanating from the past, echoing to the future.
Seething sensations burrowing beneath the bone.

Scribe or scribble, Scavenge salvation.
Settle cement of a new foundation.
Faceless fears fading,
weakening woes waning,
