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.

The Perfect Storm: The Convergence Of Social, Mobile And Photo Technologies In Libraries, Wendy Abbott, Jessie Donaghey, Joanna Hare, Peta J. Hopkins 2017 Bond University

The Perfect Storm: The Convergence Of Social, Mobile And Photo Technologies In Libraries, Wendy Abbott, Jessie Donaghey, Joanna Hare, Peta J. Hopkins

Wendy Abbott

The intersection of mobile and photographic technologies with social networks has produced platforms such as Instagram. The way libraries are using these platforms has not been investigated in depth. This research aims to discover trends in the use of Instagram by libraries, reporting on selected libraries’ experiences and intentions behind capturing and sharing images on Instagram. Recommendations will be made on how librarians can transform relationships and engagement with their communities through mobile photo sharing, taking advantage of ‘the perfect storm’ of technological convergence.


Design Plan For The Sawmill Town History Wing At The Texas Forestry Museum, Kendall D. Gay 2017 Stephen F Austin State University

Design Plan For The Sawmill Town History Wing At The Texas Forestry Museum, Kendall D. Gay

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The Texas Forestry Museum in Lufkin, Texas is the only forestry museum in the state. It preserves artifacts and educates visitors about Texas’ forest industry history. The museum has a Sawmill Town History Wing that is outdated and in need of a refreshing exhibit design based on current best practices. Using a previous museum audit as a guide, the new exhibit will have better flow, panel aesthetics, content, and interactive elements. By creating a new exhibit, the museum is better able to educate and entertain the visitors about Texas’ forest industry history.

The progression of capturing my body of work was enabled through continuous practice and guidance by those responsible for furthering my studies as an artist. The dissertation moves to explore ...


The Private Library Of Eric Blair, Ronald R. Geibert 2017 Wright State University

The Private Library Of Eric Blair, Ronald R. Geibert

Ronald Geibert

Today is often labeled as the Information Age. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, we are inundated with pictures, video, sound, and text. DSL, cable, cell-phones, fax machines, satellite radio, and other technologies keep us instantly in touch with events. To be "connected" is to be seen as contemporary and knowledgeable.

Unfortunately, this instant access is not without risk. Much of this immediate information is unfiltered, untested, and, on occasions, suspect. The anonymous Internet "expert" that is quoted might no more be an expert than your next-door neighbor (in fact, that web site might just be the creation ...

Examining Participation Among Persons With Spinal Cord Injuries And Disorders Using Photovoice, Salva Balbale, Keshonna Lones, Jennifer N. Hill, Sherri L. Lavela Phd, Mph, Mba

The Qualitative Report

Participation is a significant rehabilitation outcome for individuals with spinal cord injury and/or disorder (SCI/D), yet few qualitative studies have described the social aspect of disability and community participation. We used the photovoice methodology to explore perceptions and experiences related to participation among Veterans with SCI/D. We recruited a convenience sample of individuals with SCI/D at the Hines Veterans Affairs (VA) SCI/D Unit. Participants were asked to take photographs exemplifying their experiences and activities regarding participation. Within four weeks, participants returned their photographs and completed semi-structured interviews to discuss their photographs. Interview transcripts were analyzed ...

Moving Significances (Within 52 Days), Plinio Ribeiro Jr

Artl@s Bulletin

This proposition was composed from a reconstitution of elements that integrated the project “Paris – Tokyo by train,” third part of the Japan trilogy, realized by the artist in 2009. More than illustrate or reveal the background of this project, the texts and images that are reproduced here intend to open new perspectives on how the echoes of the past can be articulated with the personal narrative. This approach allows as well as to resignify the dynamics implied in this quest of new senses.
