Work Made For Hire – Analyzing The Multifactor Balancing Test, Ryan G. Vacca

Ryan G. Vacca

Authorship, and hence, initial ownership of copyrighted works is oftentimes controlled by the 1976 Copyright Act’s work made for hire doctrine. This doctrine states that works created by employees within the scope of their employment result in the employer owning the copyright. One key determination in this analysis is whether the hired party is an employee or independent contractor. In 1989, the U.S. Supreme Court, in CCNV v. Reid, answered the question of how employees are distinguished from independent contractors by setting forth a list of factors courts should consider. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court did not give further ...

A Tensão Para O Inanimado Ou A Emergência Da Morte Na Vida Nas Mulheres-Árvore De António Pedro, Michele Rocha 2014 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

A Tensão Para O Inanimado Ou A Emergência Da Morte Na Vida Nas Mulheres-Árvore De António Pedro, Michele Rocha

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: António Pedro, considered a pioneer of the Portuguese surrealist movement, stands by the assertion of a plastic thinking where word and image converge. In the work of this author, the feminine, in its multiple meanings and relations, emerges as a main theme, taking on a diversity of representations and significances. In this article, an analysis of the connections between plastic and literary works confirms a series of constant images that converge towards a representation of the feminine as a privileged object of destructive impulses. The study of women-trees present in the pictorial work of António Pedro, when considered alongside ...


Turning To See Otherwise, Jennifer L. Martin 2014 Western University

Turning To See Otherwise, Jennifer L. Martin

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This thesis dossier, in combination with an exhibition at the McIntosh Gallery, considers whether an archival collection can generate an alternative narrative other than that which may already exist in the original film and photographic documents. Rather than represent a singular truth, I seek to articulate the transformative realities of collective memory by re-orienting the material for broader viewer identification. I have mined photographic and filmic materials from a personal family archive to focus fragments that specifically record the gesture of the turning face—the turning towards the observer. This “turn” then includes both the turn towards the initial film-maker ...


A Photographic Ontology: Being Haunted Within The Blue Hour And Expanding Field, Colin E. Miner 2014 Western University

A Photographic Ontology: Being Haunted Within The Blue Hour And Expanding Field, Colin E. Miner

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

What are the current boundaries of the photographic and how can an ontology of photography take form as a material and conceptual program of research? Responding to the difficulty inherent in any definitive attempt to grasp photography, this dissertation places emphasis on the less determined act of evoking as a model of dialogue, and engagement, with the photographic. This dissertation is composed of two parts that engage both the question “What is photography?” and the ontological anxiety that shadows it. These lines of questioning are pursued in two ways: directly through considering the qualities of the photographic as elucidated by ...

Through my work, I would like to show that even though we are our own individuals, we are also all part of a global culture. As a Chinese American, I am part of a community in which Kung Fu is prevalent and I have spent a great deal of time studying it, along with many of my family members and friends. I believe that Kung Fu is a unique way to bridge cultural gaps; it aids in a mutual understanding in a way that language often fails to do. It is an art that is able to cross existing cultural ...


Plainville, Kara Flanagan 2014 Providence College

Plainville, Kara Flanagan

Art Journal

In my work I explore a dimension of my childhood that is usually not spoken of. I photograph sites that I inhabited as a child, many of which are abandoned today. These places refer to the psychological experience of being left behind by a parent and they bring back specific memories of events that occurred there. Additionally, the act of rexposure to the sites is a way of trauma intervention that is the core to this work.

When I revisit the sea-saw I used to ride, the elementary school I attended, or the church I got baptized at, I have ...
