Walking As Ontological Shifter: Thoughts In The Key Of Life, Bibi (Silvina) Calderaro 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Walking As Ontological Shifter: Thoughts In The Key Of Life, Bibi (Silvina) Calderaro

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

With walking as ontological shifter I pursue an alternative to the dominant modernist episteme that offers either/or onto-epistemologies of opposition and their reifying engagements. I propose this type of walking is an intentional turning towards a set of radical positions that, as integrative aesthetic and therapeutic practice, brings multiplicity and synchronicity to experience and being in an expanded sociality. This practice facilitates the conditions of possibility for recurring points of contact between the interiority perceived as ‘body’ and the exteriority perceived as ‘world.’ While making evident the self’s at once incoherence with it-self, it opens to a space ...


Never Forgets: Traumatic Trace Within Public Space, Jan Descartes 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Never Forgets: Traumatic Trace Within Public Space, Jan Descartes

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

This paper will interrogate the ways in which ephemera from events affects the human and non- human environment and how the absence, manipulation or presence of traumatic trace weaves itself into the atmosphere of the past, present and future. It will look at space and the ways that trace manifests itself in hierarchal spaces and Lebbeus Woods’ concept of heterarchial spaces, which are organic and/or horizontally organized. A thread throughout is the question that if trace from trauma can exist in the visual field, i.e. the physical or digital landscape, in a way that maintains a discourse without ...

Es-Sen-Tial, Lyn A. Govette 2017 East Tennessee State University

Es-Sen-Tial, Lyn A. Govette

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This thesis is in support of the exhibition entitled ES-SEN-TIAL on display in Tipton Gallery located in Downtown Johnson City from February 27, 2017 to March 10, 2017.

The exhibition is a presentation in fiber medium of the human impact on the landscape, specifically using the extractive industry of coal mining as example. This is accomplished through the use of digital imagery printed on textiles, hand and machine embroidery, and surface design techniques of dyeing and layering. This body of work reflects the artist’s interest in art activism and the utilization of photography, fiber arts, ideas and techniques, as ...


Art Unto Death, Stephen W. Evans 2017 University of Iowa

Art Unto Death, Stephen W. Evans

Theses and Dissertations

As people living in 2017, what, if anything, have we come to know about art as a whole? What can we say about the artistic impulse? What is art for, and what does it stand to show us about ourselves today? In this paper, I try to address these questions, from the standpoint of both an artist and a human being. Examining art as ancient as the prehistoric cave paintings, as well as art of the present day, I discuss certain ontological traits that art-making has both lost and maintained over the years. Through Heidegger’s philosophy of Being, Tillich ...


Gravitas, Robert Scott 2017 University of Iowa

Gravitas, Robert Scott

Theses and Dissertations

This body of work was created during my time at the University of Iowa. The work operates as an embodiment of personal traumas and memories. Materials and processes are at the forefront of the work as they link me to my past. The scale of the work remains small not only for the sake of portability, but for its intimate relationship to the viewer.


Nocturnal Toys, Lee Allen White 2017 University of Iowa

Nocturnal Toys, Lee Allen White

Theses and Dissertations

I’m interested in the scar tissue, the blemishing of our perception from the ache of longing and estrangement that comes from repression and returns as enigma. I’m investigating the notion that the body itself is a puppet that succumbs to the control of outside forces, making it vulnerable to mistreatment. The paintings come from cathected suffering through reminiscences brought forth from amorous memories, resulting in new encounters that replace old associations. It is the memory, not the event, that becomes traumatic.

Statut, Esthétique Et Genre : Trajet De La Danse De Ballet Au Travers Du Xviiie Siècle Français, Hélène Marquié 2017 Université de Paris 8, Laboratoire d’études de genre et de sexualité (LEGS UMR 8238)

Statut, Esthétique Et Genre : Trajet De La Danse De Ballet Au Travers Du Xviiie Siècle Français, Hélène Marquié

Le Monde français du dix-huitième siècle

Un tableau de l'évolution de la danse de spectacle, d'une performance noble et masculine et une danse de représentation dont la théorie se partage entre la rhétorique et l'art pictural (les attributs identifiants), puis la mimesis ou danse action, à une performance autonome, ayant sa propre esthétique, au moment où cette discipline naissante minore la danse (Baumgarten, Kant). Par la suite, à partir du dix-neuvième siècle, le ballet devient un art réservé aux danseuses, une profession dévaluée aux yeux du grand public en une "charmante" parade de grâce féminine (suspecte de prostitution), ou une performance de féminité ...

Water Being Water, Ronald R. Geibert 2017 Wright State University

Water Being Water, Ronald R. Geibert

Ronald Geibert

IQ. DNA. MRI. FYI. In an ever-changing world, we find ourselves conversing with abbreviated acronyms and phrases. They drive today's economy, political agenda, and water cooler chitchat. They define our use of resources and the attention given to matters. Who we are, or think we are, are wrapped around their brevity. In our hurried attempt to sort through the complexities of life we use them to only answer the obvious-How? Unfortunately, an equally important question, Why? is often ignored. The solving of the how of things has generally been left to the scientists and the reasons as to the ...

At The Center Of Things: How An Academic Library Built A Bridge Between Art And Science On Campus, Michelle Catalano, Catherine Essinger, Suzanne Ferimer, Stephanie Lewin-Lane, Porcia Vaughn

Collaborative Librarianship

The University of Houston Libraries sponsored an interdisciplinary event for students, faculty, and the public, titled the Artists’ Health and Wellness Colloquium and Resource Fair. Aspiring and working artists were instructed in how to maintain good health and to avoid overstressing their bodies as they practice their art. Scholars presented both historical and trending perspectives on the intersection of art and health science. The event was held in order to facilitate learning in two key research areas and to demonstrate the library's ability to bridge disparate disciplines and forge new partnerships with multiple academic units simultaneously. This article presents ...
