The Gift That Time Gave: Myth And History In The Western Desert Painting Movement, Ian A. McLean 2011 University of Wollongong

The Gift That Time Gave: Myth And History In The Western Desert Painting Movement, Ian A. Mclean

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

The most fabulous moment in Australian art history occurred in the autumn of 1971 when an art teacher named Geoffrey Bardon supplied about a dozen Western Desert men with brushes and acrylic paint. Asmall and innocent gesture, it sparked a bushfire so intense that the cultural landscape was radically upturned, locally at first and then at a more universal level.

From rock art to Australian modernism, from bark paintings to the Heidelberg School, The Cambridge Companion to Australian Art provides a wide-ranging overview of the movements, themes and media found in Australian art. This Companion features essays that explore the ...


Physical Cinema: Practitioners And Recent Practice, Michael G. Leggett 2011 University of Wollongong

Physical Cinema: Practitioners And Recent Practice, Michael G. Leggett

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

Physical theatre, Live Art and Cinema have through performer and filmmaker established a vigorous practice in recent years, challenging the confines of more traditional art forms. Practitioners have come together with audiences to create between them a physical cinema converging as a series of spatial modes.This paper will outline some recent developments in this interdisciplinary field.


Radical Uncertainty: Judith Butler And A Theory Of Character, Shady E. Cosgrove 2011 University of Wollongong

Radical Uncertainty: Judith Butler And A Theory Of Character, Shady E. Cosgrove

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

This paper will develop a theory of character based on Judith Butler's ideas of subjectivity and gender construction. It will summarise Butler's position and explore the practicalities of reading realist characters as performative repetitions. Then, it will discuss Butler's notion of agency and the subversive repetition, and how realist characters can demonstrate the radical uncertainty inherent in Butler's notion of agency s specifically when texts are rewritten in such a way that characters `question' their `original' depictions. The example of interest here will be Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea in relation to Charlotte Bronte's ...


History And Postmemory In Contemporary Vietnamese Literature, Marsha Berry, Catherine Cole 2011 RMIT

History And Postmemory In Contemporary Vietnamese Literature, Marsha Berry, Catherine Cole

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

In this paper we argue that there are many ways in which history is embedded in a country’s fiction—many of them offering questions rather than answers about a country’s creative practices. In Vietnam it seems inevitable that the war against America and her allies would shape the nation’s creative writing. But is this the case? And what of the ways in which later generations have reacted to the war? In Vietnam and Australia this shared history has played out differently, not least in a postmemory dialogue between a generation who remembers too much and a generation ...


Reverse Perspective: Bernard Smith's Worldview And The Cosmopolitan Imagination, Ian A. McLean 2011 University of Wollongong

Reverse Perspective: Bernard Smith's Worldview And The Cosmopolitan Imagination, Ian A. Mclean

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

Living and working in Australia, and being the first Australian-born professional art historian to work in the academy, is probably enough of an explanation for why Bernard Smith developed a global perspective on European art and an acute awareness of its relationship to imperialism. However Bernard Smith’s world-consciousness is grounded in an earlier era that has little relevance to the current intensification of globalization and the challenges it poses to the discipline. This essay discusses Smith’s approach to globalization within the context of the discipline’s changing world-consciousness since its emergence in the eighteenth century.


Memory, Schema And Interactive Video, Michael G. Leggett 2011 University of Wollongong

Memory, Schema And Interactive Video, Michael G. Leggett

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

In the computer-based digital domain, interaction with video is becoming aneveryday occurrence. Breaking away from our traditional regard for moving imagesorganised along the linear principles of the filmic tradition we can now use motionpictures relationally, linking across and along shots and sequences. In so doing, thecreative experience is shared as physical cinema.My experience as an artist working with film, video and performance was based onlevels of audience engagement ranging from the reflexive to the physically active. Theexperience of a durational artwork relies on both short and long-term memory andthe anticipation of its process of change. Aesthetic issues of this ...


David Haines And Joyce Hinterding - A Radiostation From The Sun, Su Ballard 2011 University of Wollongong

David Haines And Joyce Hinterding - A Radiostation From The Sun, Su Ballard

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

As part of Energetics and Informatics The 6th ADA Network Symposium in Whanganui December 2010, I organised for the Sargeant Gallery to present a new work Ozinal (2010) (a radio station from the sun) by Joyce Hinterding and David Haines.

Ozinal makes a gallery sound differently. An ultrasound speaker high on a wall focuses tympanic sounds recorded from the sun into a single beam. Like a light ray caught between clouds the beam of noise is reflected bouncing across the ear drum of the gallery. Slowly those fragments become dissipated, and realise curatorial fears as they begin to invade the ...

Green Bans Art Walk Project, Lucas M. Ihlein, Jo Holder, Diego Bonetto, Pat Armstrong, Stacey Miers, Mickie Quick, Fiona McDonald 2011 University of Wollongong

Green Bans Art Walk Project, Lucas M. Ihlein, Jo Holder, Diego Bonetto, Pat Armstrong, Stacey Miers, Mickie Quick, Fiona Mcdonald

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

On the fortieth anniversary of the Green Bans, Green Bans Art Walk captures the ideals and struggle to protect the character of the inner-city areas of Woolloomooloo, Darlinghurst and Kings Cross. These were the most brutal of the Green Ban struggles.

Green Bans Art Walk revives the old walkways across Woolloomooloo basin accessed from stairs in Victoria Street on the escarpment. The Walk symbolically re-unifies a beautiful area disconnected by rail and freeway structures, ugly site consolidations and looming high-rise. Green Bans Art Walk opens up this crucial part of Sydney’s history for a new generation.


Unreal Estate, Lucas M. Ihlein 2011 University of Wollongong

Unreal Estate, Lucas M. Ihlein

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

[extract] ZINNY: Can you tell us a bit about the real estate beauties you have advertised? What impact does it have on the city, these buildings being left empty for so long? DIEGO: SquatSpace has concerned itself with the polincs of space from the start, and in some ways the topic is what defines the group's trajectory. UnReal Estate is yet another playful look at the loop holes: buildings are left abandoned for speculation purposes, creating focus areas for urban renewals, while at the same time denying living possibilities.

What Lies Beneath (small soundworks for the sleepy) –a collaboration between Lucas Ihlein and Media Arts staff and students at the University of Wollongong.

DOWNLOAD PROJECT FLYER HERE (JPG 500KB)

What is it? As industry is driven out of the city, we can easily lose touch with what lies beneath our tidy lifestyles: the gritty reality of good old-fashioned NOISE.

In What Lies Beneath, the industrial din which props up Sydney is recuperated through small soundworks, to occupy a place in the slumbering minds of the citizens of the Inner West.

Through A Glass Darkly: Gesture In Actor Training, Janys Hayes 2011 University of Wollongong

Through A Glass Darkly: Gesture In Actor Training, Janys Hayes

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

Cognitive science has offered rich understandings as to the meaning and role of gesture in communication. Whilst the neurosciences and behavioural and cognitive sciences forge ahead with new insights into human interactions, the theorisation of acting in order to take account of recent research in these fields is slow on the uptake. This paper seeks to integrate research from both cognitive science and phenomenology to explore the ways in which gesture transforms action. The paper aims to elucidate modes within actor- training that enhance subtle and in-depth performed communication. The term body-language (Lamb & Watson 1979; Pease 1987) has often been used within ...


Catalogue Essay For "Learning From Experience: In League With The City Of Melbourne" Visual Arts Project, Lucas M. Ihlein 2011 University of Wollongong

Catalogue Essay For "Learning From Experience: In League With The City Of Melbourne" Visual Arts Project, Lucas M. Ihlein

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

The following essay was commissioned in early 2011, by the League of Resonance – a Melbourne artist group comprising Jason Maling, Jess Olivieri and Sarah Rodigari. In this piece, I try to tease out an anatomy of sorts for their particular brand of socially engaged art practice. Much of the underlying information comes from an interview I did with the artists in early 2011 (thanks to Liz Pulie for the transcription yakka)…


Of The People, For The People: Duong Le Quy's Site-Specific Spectacles At The 2010 Hue International Arts Festival, Janys Hayes 2011 University of Wollongong

Of The People, For The People: Duong Le Quy's Site-Specific Spectacles At The 2010 Hue International Arts Festival, Janys Hayes

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

Duong Le Quy’s Journey to Create the Motherland, with its 1,000 performers, offered the 2010 Hue International Arts Festival a monolithic Vietnamese spectacle, designed for performance on the walls of Hue’s ancient Royal Citadel. Symbolically it linked the heartland of Vietnam’s nineteenth century Nguyen dynasty with contemporary Vietnam’s unification; the largest flag of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam formed an enormous tableau above the performers, as they drummed, sang, strode, danced and set off fireworks over Ky Dai – The Flag Tower of the Imperial Palace. This paper examines the use of traditional Vietnamese theatre practices ...

4 Poems Published In "Australian Poetry Since 1788", Alan R. Wearne

Alan Wearne was born and grew up in Melbourne. He became friendly with Laurie Duggan and John Scott at Monash University, where he studied history, which he describes as his only intellectual love. He hosted "Conversations with a Dead Poet" (1999) a television documentary about his friend, John Forbes. A supporter of Essendon, the Australian Rules football club, since 1954 he helped found the Nunawading District Junior Football League and has published a prose satire about Melbourne's Australian Rules culture. He now teaches creative writing at the University of Wollongong, living part of the year in Wollongong and part ...


Paul, The Athenians, And The Breath Of Life: Acts 17:22-31, William Russell Horst 2011 Seattle Pacific Seminary

Paul, The Athenians, And The Breath Of Life: Acts 17:22-31, William Russell Horst

Theses and Dissertations

This MA thesis argues that Paul's speech to the Athenians in Acts 17:22-31 includes biblical allusions, as well as concepts and turns of phrase that bear a strong resemblance to those of other Hellenistic Jewish texts, especially those related to the breath of life.


Catechesis For A Practicing Church, Jim Fox 2011 Seattle Pacific Seminary

Catechesis For A Practicing Church, Jim Fox

Theses and Dissertations

In "Catechesis for a Practicing Church" I . . . survey the history of Christian catechesis (looking for norms regarding content and structure), explore methods and styles of contemporary experts in secular and Christian education, and reflect on the context of a practicing church as observed specifically in Vineyard Community Church (VCC) to define and build a contemporary catechesis for VCC (the model) as well as for the larger practicing church.

Between: Place & Sovereign, Christian Lawrence 2011 Western Washington University

Between: Place & Sovereign, Christian Lawrence

Occam's Razor

This essay comes from reading and studying works and authors of the literary tradition called “continental philosophy,” a school of critical thought as artistic as it is academic. Never limiting itself to a particular body of writing, continental philosophy allows the thinker to liberally address issues of morality, sociology, psychology, and ontology across texts, from literary fiction to political theory. The mythology and philosophy of the West’s antiquity, studies of the Bible, and early modern human analyses (anthropology, psychoanalysis, etc.) are of particular interest to this school. The purpose of this interdisciplinary and often baffling pursuit: to question what ...
