Art In Life: Fashioning Political Ideology Through Visual Culture In Mid-Century America, Isadora A. Helfgott 2010 University of Wyoming

Art In Life: Fashioning Political Ideology Through Visual Culture In Mid-Century America, Isadora A. Helfgott

History Faculty Publications

Life magazine debuted onto the American publishing scene in November, 1936. The third major publication to come out of Henry Luce’s publishing empire, Time, Inc., Life was a picture magazine. It helped to transform visual culture in America, elevating images over text as a means of communication and developing an influential new style of photographic journalism first introduced in the magazine’s inaugural issue with Margaret Bourke-White’s photographs of the Fort Peck Dam . Ranging in subjects from international politics to society news, Life provided a visual survey of modern experience for its readers, a weekly synopsis of the ...


Imaginary Islands?: Options To Preserve Maritime Jurisdictional Entitlements And Provide Stable Maritime Limits In The Face Of Coastal Instability, Clive Schofield, I Made Andi Arsana 2010 University of Wollongong

Imaginary Islands?: Options To Preserve Maritime Jurisdictional Entitlements And Provide Stable Maritime Limits In The Face Of Coastal Instability, Clive Schofield, I Made Andi Arsana

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

The inundation of a disputed island in the Bay of Bengal in March 2010 was reported as an unlooked for benefit of climate change, eliminating the object of a contentious bilateral dispute. In fact this has not proved to be the case and the incident instead highlights the vulnerability of certain low-lying coastlines and insular features to significant and rapid changes in location, whether caused by sea level rise or not. While acknowledging ongoing debates on climate change and sea level rise, the paper examines key challenges in this context, notably concerning the ambulatory nature of normal baselines and the ...


Scraping Down The Past: Memory And Amnesia In W. G. Sebald's Anti-Narrative, Kathy Behrendt 2010 Wilfrid Laurier University

Scraping Down The Past: Memory And Amnesia In W. G. Sebald's Anti-Narrative, Kathy Behrendt

Philosophy Faculty Publications

Vanguard anti-narrativist Galen Strawson declares personal memory unimportant for self-constitution. But what if lapses of personal memory are sustained by a morally reprehensible amnesia about historical events, as happens in the work of German author W. G. Sebald? The importance of memory cannot be downplayed in such cases. Nevertheless, contrary to expectations, a concern for memory needn’t ally one with the narrativist view of the self. Recovery of historical and personal memory results in self-dissolution and not self-unity or understanding in Sebald’s characters. In the end, Sebald shows how memory can be significant, even imperative, within a deeply ...


Tune In, Turn On: The Novel, The Family, And The Plug-In Drug, Kathleen Fitzpatrick 2010 Pomona College

Tune In, Turn On: The Novel, The Family, And The Plug-In Drug, Kathleen Fitzpatrick

Pomona Faculty Publications and Research

This article, forthcoming (January 2010) in an online casebook from Dalkey Archive Press on Curtis White’s Memories of My Father Watching TV, explores the peculiar relationship between the novel and its representations of television, arguing that this novel significantly complicates the anxious representations that I explored in The Anxiety of Obsolescence, by focusing on the subversive potential that television presents within the family.

Travelling Partners: Using Literary Studies To Support Creative Writing About Real Spaces, Joshua M. Lobb 2010 University of Wollongong

Travelling Partners: Using Literary Studies To Support Creative Writing About Real Spaces, Joshua M. Lobb

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

This paper investigates the ways in which literary studies and critical theory can be used to provide writers with productive creative models for representing ‘real spaces’: that is, the incorporation of real locations within a creative work. Many new creative writing students begin with the premise ‘write what you know’, but often overlook the implications of including the names of real places in their work—whether it be Paris, Paddington Station or Prahran. The paper argues that the examination of existing creative work allows writers to understand the practical and the political ramifications of this activity. The paper will outline ...

The Art Collection Ecosystem: Discovering Art Using Formal Concept Analysis, Tim Wray, Peter Eklund, Amanda Lawson

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

We describe an application and case study in the design and evaluation of the Art Collection Ecosystem (ACE) | a Rich Internet Application that supports the ability of users to browse and explore art collections using Formal Concept Analysis. With a view of a system that allows browsing of tagged content, 25 participants conducted a usability study within the context of a popular social media website - Flickr. We describe key design elements within its user interface and incorporate re- visions of its design based on user feedback. We incorporate these results into a framework called CollectionWeb - a set of software, services ...

Toward Algorithmic Composition Of Expression In Music Using Fuzzy Logic, Wendy Suiter 2010 University of Wollongong

Toward Algorithmic Composition Of Expression In Music Using Fuzzy Logic, Wendy Suiter

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

This paper introduces the concept of composing expressive music using the principles of Fuzzy Logic. The paper provides a conceptual model of a musical work which follows compositional decision making processes. Significant features of this Fuzzy Logic framework are its inclusiveness through the consideration of all the many and varied musical details, while also incorporating the imprecision that characterises musical terminology and discourse. A significant attribute of my Fuzzy Logic method is that it traces the trajectory of all musical details, since it is both the individual elements and their combination over time which is significant to the effectiveness of ...


The Promise Of Fuzzy Logic In Generalised Music Composition, Wendy Suiter 2010 University of Wollongong

The Promise Of Fuzzy Logic In Generalised Music Composition, Wendy Suiter

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

Abstract. The paper outlines the rationale for using Fuzzy Logic, and Granular Computing, to emulate compositional decision making processes. Significant features of this Fuzzy Logic framework are that ambiguity in the music is maintained, while allowing the evolution of unfolding processes which reflects the temporal nature of music as performed. Granular Computing and Fuzzy Logic have been designed for physical and IT engineering applications to automate complex tasks. Fuzzy Logic is not only useful as an analytical concept, but also, can be generally applied to the production of music itself through a Fuzzy Logic control system. As artificial intelligence design ...


Expression In Process Music: Possibility Or Paradox?, Wendy Suiter 2010 University of Wollongong

Expression In Process Music: Possibility Or Paradox?, Wendy Suiter

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

Algorithmic composition progressed throughout the 20th century, as modernism became the dominant aesthetic, until finally ‘process music’ arrived, where the single remaining compositional decision related to what sonic resources to use. Composition pedagogy in the late 20th century did not explicitly include ‘expression’. This raises a second question, as repeatedly, musical discourse refers to ‘expression’, which seems to be something that audiences desire and to which they respond. Addressing these questions has lead me to reconsider the way music itself, and compositional processes, are characterised in music analysis. The outcome of my research is a new theory of music, using ...


Ludwig Van Beethoven: String Quartet F-Major: Introduction, Wendy Suiter 2010 University of Wollongong

Ludwig Van Beethoven: String Quartet F-Major: Introduction, Wendy Suiter

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

On 25 June 1799 “Carl Amenda gewidmet” was written on the first version of Beethoven’s String Quartet in F Major. Yet when the revised version was finally published in June 1801 it was dedicated to Prince Josef von Lobkowitz. What clues does this thought provoking change provide about Beethoven and his music? Indeed it points to significant aspects of Beethoven's professional career, his personal life, and his music, which were already taking shape at the age of 29 years.


Using Open-Source Platforms For Digital Media Production, Brogan Bunt 2010 University of Wollongong

Using Open-Source Platforms For Digital Media Production, Brogan Bunt

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

Media art, like contemporary art generally, has a strong critical aspect. Media art practice involves a crucial dimension of interrogating the cultural, social-political and material-aesthetic conditions of media. From Dada photographic collage through to contemporary hardware hacking there is a clearly evident concern to unsettle the representational transparency and taken-for-granted character of media. How does this inform the teaching of media art? It has obvious thematic importance, indicating paths of conceptual access and orientation, but what of the dimension of practice? What of the technical frameworks that we employ and the skills that we teach? How do they obtain a ...


Scientific Concepts In Singing: Do They Belong In A Student Toolbox Of Learning, Lotte Latukefu, I. Verenikina 2010 University of Wollongong

Scientific Concepts In Singing: Do They Belong In A Student Toolbox Of Learning, Lotte Latukefu, I. Verenikina

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

This article presents part of an Australian study the purpose of which was to look at learning singing in a pedagogical environment designed using sociocultural theory. The classroom environment was transformed over 5 years in consultation with other staff members and used the reflective journals that students wrote during that time, as a way of refining and changing the design. Themes emerging from the journals were analysed to inform changes to the design. One of the main themes to emerge was student reflections about the scientific concepts they were taught and the ways the concepts were introduced. These reflections became ...

The Virtual Museum Of The Pacific: New Context, New Knowledge, New Art, F. Krishnabhakdi-Vasilakis

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

In a post colonial world, traditional representations of cultural artifacts in museums are challenged by rapidly proliferating online presence of collections and associated narratives. The Virtual Museum of the Pacific (VMP) project, which can be characterised as a digital ecosystem, is developing a social media platform designed to enable a variety of user communities to engage with the Pacific Collections of the Australian Museum. This engagement has the potential to disrupt the museum’s control over the display and interpretation of its ethnographic collections. There is a growing trend for artists from Indigenous or creator communities, whose cultural heritage is ...


P[A]Ra[Pra]Xis: Towards Genuine Realtime ‘Audiopoetry’, Josh Dubrau, Mark Havryliv mh675@uow.edu.au 2010 University of Wollongong

P[A]Ra[Pra]Xis: Towards Genuine Realtime ‘Audiopoetry’, Josh Dubrau, Mark Havryliv Mh675@Uow.Edu.Au

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

P[a]ra[pra]xis is an ongoing collaborative project incorporating a two-piece software package which explores human relations to language through dynamic sound and text production. Incorporating an exploration of the potential functions and limitations of the ‘sign’ and the intrusions of the Unconscious into the linguistic utterance via parapraxes, or ‘Freudian slips’, our software utilises realtime subject response to automaticallygenerated changes in a narrative of their own writing to create music. This paper considers the relative paucity of truly interactive realtime text and audio works and provides an account of current and future potential for the simultaneous production ...


Literary Communities: Writers' Practices And Networks, Catherine Cole, Anitra Nelson 2010 University of Wollongong

Literary Communities: Writers' Practices And Networks, Catherine Cole, Anitra Nelson

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

This paper discusses a new direction for research on creative writing: exploring the formative contexts within which writers develop, receive recognition and are celebrated, our approach centres on literary networks and activities that characterize well-recognised literary communities. By studying the UNESCO Cities of Literature network, our research aims to identify and analyse key formative experiences for contemporary creative writers, although in this paper we simply refer to one of those cities — Melbourne. We hypothesize that the notion of a ‘community of practice’ has potential to be a constructive way to interrogate writers’ practices within literary communities to inform arts policy ...

Html Colour Codes, Su Ballard 2010 University of Wollongong

Html Colour Codes, Su Ballard

Faculty of Creative Arts - Papers (Archive)

The HTML Color Codes exhibition features a selection of internet based artwork that address the topic of digital color. The central question that the exhibition poses is whether or not artists working with the internet are in fact limited to a "ready-made" color palette, a premise that many artists working with film, photography, and mass produced, standardized paint sets have assumed. The rationale for this question stems from theories of perception that argue that color is a not ready-made object found in a paint set or machine, but rather it is an experience that results from a complex process of ...
