In Defense Of Film Art: The Effects Of Digital Media On Narrative, Live-Action Film, Scott Williams

Scott Williams

A man named Jared is playing with his dog. It is mid-May in a rural area of the Northern Plains of the United States. Jared has a Frisbee that he tosses ahead of him as he follows behind his companion. They are in a hilly, tree-filled park with warm sun beams penetrating the dust that follows the dog in a trail as he runs. The dog grabs the Frisbee off the ground after it falls and gallops back to his owner. Jared bends down to take the toy and feels the wetness of the dog's mouth on it, as ...

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.

Tandem 2.0: Image And Text Data Generation Application, Christopher J. Vitale

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

First created as part of the Digital Humanities Praxis course in the spring of 2012 at the CUNY Graduate Center, Tandem explores the generation of datasets comprised of text and image data by leveraging Optical Character Recognition (OCR), Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Computer Vision (CV).

"La Dolce Vita" Today: Fashion And Media, Nicola Certo 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

"La Dolce Vita" Today: Fashion And Media, Nicola Certo

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

Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita is a cinematic masterpiece that has inspired nationally and internationally generations of creative people and artists because of the extent of its themes and because of the mastery in the choice of its costumes. The actuality of the director’s criticism towards the decadent society of his years, the originality of his stylistic choices, and his sophisticated taste for beauty and fashion, brought him to influence media and contemporary fashion then and now. There are numerous examples of television commercials that Fellini directs and produces for purely commercial purposes. They are all critique of ...

Dancing Silhouettes: Lotte Reiniger's The Adventures Of Prince Achmed: A Critical Study, Maria N. Rhodes

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

Lotte Reiniger’s The Adventures of Prince Achmed has been relegated to a curiosity in film history textbooks for some time. Known as the first surviving feature length animated film, it is talked about but rarely seen. However, it is more than just a point in a film history timeline. The film is a beautiful piece of art that engages with the time period in which it was made in a critical and political way. The subject matter, silhouettes as animation, the political atmosphere of Weimar Republic Era Berlin and the role of the spectator are all explored in this ...

Merchandise, Promotion, And Accessibility: Keith Haring’S Pop Shop, Amy L. Raffel

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

During the peak of his career in New York, Keith Haring took his highly recognizable artistic style and distributed it in the form of merchandise in his Pop Shop, established in 1986. Stemming from his early work displayed on the New York streets, directly within public space, and his explorations into mass media strategies, he learned he could make his work accessible to new audiences outside contemporary art institutions and art circles. He translated his work across several surfaces: from subways or canvases, to everyday functional merchandise, such as buttons, t-shirts, and bags sold in his shop. Responding to a ...
