Pennsylvania Noir, 2013 Providence College
Pennsylvania Noir, Bridget Reed
Distant vestiges of memory incite my art making. By examining my biographical past through various scopes, I can extract key memory perceptions for further investigation.
In my work, I physically construct models of memories to correlate to the mental process of memory reconstruction. The very nature of memory is devoid of a logical progression or stability. Imagery loses clarity, moving in and out of our consciousness. The memories often become muddled creating passages that can be fleshed out by intuitive impulses. Therefore, the structure is built to contain the fleeting memories so I can extract meaning from them. Individually crafting ...
Eye Witness, 2013 Providence College
Eye Witness, Elise Costello
Ballet is my passion. Through the movements of dance, my body and mind can become one. In this state, the actions are performed with muscle memory; there is almost a mindlessness that all athletes have to maintain in order to be able to lose themselves to movement.
My project allows me to fully understand what goes on in this semi-mindless state, and allows me to analyze it intellectually outside the arena of performance. I use a high-speed camera to capture and isolate the steps involved in each movement. I can use the images to study the particular muscles and motions ...
Fog Emotion, 2013 Providence College
Fog Emotion, Amanda Dailey
My bodies of work are mental stepping-stones towards an intrapersonal discovery. I am in pursuit of understanding the seemingly endless psychological chaos unraveling inside my mind. These images are highly personal conceptual representations that aim to demonstrate the strains of separation anxiety, and the physical and psychological changes of pregnancy. They are abstract enough to encourage individual interpretation, while still allowing the viewer access to the window of my mind and body. By choosing and combining images that are individually strong, I am able to create pieces that are emotionally complex and powerful.
Avalanche Vocals, 2013 Providence College
Avalanche Vocals, Megan Costello
Throughout my studies of photojournalism, I have developed a strong interest in documentary photography. Avalanche Vocals contains street photographs of people I happened upon by chance. These images were created while I was living in Italy and France this past fall. As a foreigner to the lands, I wanted to understand the identity of the native people. I found that much like the United States, France and Italy have a collage of identities and cultures. As a result, I decided to use street photography as a method of understanding the concept of individual identity. I found that the identity of ...
Art And Symbolism: The Technique Of Applying Hidden Meaning And Communicating Specific Ideas Through Art, Andrea C. Macbean
Senior Honors Papers
Symbolism is an artistic style frequently used in the arts. Through the course of art history, it was its own artistic movement as well. The incorporation of specific symbols, shapes, colors, or identifiable images communicates to the viewer an intended message or statement. Frequently, symbolism appears to be hidden or initially unperceived by the intended audience. In some works, symbolism is so abstract that it needs explanation or clarification to be understood completely by the viewer. This thesis will analyze a few techniques of symbolism that can be incorporated in a work of art to communicate truth, entice thought, point ...

Grassy Landscapes And The Australian Representational Imaginary: The Ongoing Tale Of South Australia’S ‘Diesel And Dust’ House, Philip A. Bagust
Landscapes: the Journal of the International Centre for Landscape and Language
One abandoned farmhouse amongst many, set in what has been called a ruined, or at least severely underappreciated, part of the (South) Australian landscape. Yet in spite this, a place that became the subject of one of Australia’s most recognised landscape photographs. An image taken by a prominent professional photographer, emblazoned on the cover of one of the country’s highest selling rock albums, subsequently utilised in all sorts of promotional and tourist material, and finally adopted by a socially networked general public exploring new meanings of place and performativity in ‘augmented reality’. How does the ‘Diesel and Dust ...
First Body(Ies): Photographs Of Csb/Sju Made From Egg, Clay And Ash, 2013 College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University
First Body(Ies): Photographs Of Csb/Sju Made From Egg, Clay And Ash, Scott K. Murphy, Sienna Kuhn
Photographs can be made from ash, clay, egg and tree sap. Artists in the 19th century figured out how to do some of this. Over the past year, post-bac resident artist Sienna Kuhn and I figured out the rest. Photography does not need to be an industrially mediated procedure. You do not always need to buy pre-made materials or send your digital files off to a printing service to have pictures. In conjunction with an exhibition on the process in Clemens Library, we describe some of the ways in which 19th century ingenuity, contemporary experimentation, and 21st technology can produce ...

Many Worlds Converge Here: Vision And Identity In American Indian Photography, 2013 University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Many Worlds Converge Here: Vision And Identity In American Indian Photography, Alicia L. Harris
Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, Department of Art and Art History
Photographs of Native Americans taken by Frank A. Rinehart at the Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition in 1898 were then and continue to be part of the construction of indigenous identities, both by Anglo-Americans and Natives. This thesis analyzes the ramifications of Rinehart’s portraits and those of his peers as well as Native American artists in the 20th and 21st centuries who have sought to re-appropriate these images to make them empowering icons of individual or tribal identity rather than erasure of culture.
This thesis comprises two sections. In the first section, the analysis is focused on the ...
Reimagining The Silver Screen: Contemporary Film Stills, 2013 University of Rhode Island
Reimagining The Silver Screen: Contemporary Film Stills, Kyle Demartino
Senior Honors Projects
During the late 19th century longer rolls of celluloid photographic film, and motion picture cameras were first introduced, which allowed for the capture of rapid sequences of still images at a relatively high speeds. The first films shown to audiences on a larger screen, although rudimentary, caused people to gasp or run from the cinema, as they believed the images on screen were real. As technology increased feature films progressed from only showing a simple static event to creating full stories spanning over various sets and containing multiple characters. With the advent of sound, filmmakers were given another tool ...
The Plight Of A Vertical Photograph In A Digital World: An Ipad News App Solution, 2013 Syracuse University
The Plight Of A Vertical Photograph In A Digital World: An Ipad News App Solution, Thomas Alexander Halsey Palmer
Photography - Theses
As a concept designer for Hearst Corporation's first iPad news app, the author developed solutions for displaying vertical photographs in the tablet format -- just as they have been authoritatively published in traditional news print designs. This thesis also reveals that the lack of vertical integration in newspaper home page design has been widely unaddressed, according to media experts. This formative period of tablet design has provided the author an opportunity to advocate for the vertical photograph's vital role in photojournalism.

The magazine target audience is primarily high school juniors and seniors who are interested in attending Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. I completely designed the magazine from beginning to end, with the exception of the photographs. The photographs used are ones approved by the Liberty University Marketing Department that the author has permission to reprint. This way, if Liberty University decides to add this publication to their line of products the school already ...

Engineering Creativity: Creating A Student Art Exhibit At Olin, Tim Raymond
2013 AHS Capstone Projects
My capstone project involved collecting student art, putting together a show for the Olin community, and then writing a reflection and how-to guide for students interested in setting up an exhibit in the future. In the first part of the semester, I sent out an email to the student body, and received a number of submissions, which I then reduced to a reasonable number for a show. The show was hung in the third floor of the academic center for two weeks, and feedback from observers and artists alike was collected. The show explored how engineers view and make art ...
