From Chinese Painting To Wearable Art: The Development Of Wearable Art Design Process Model And Evaluation Methods For Wearable Art Designers, Ling Zhang May 2019

From Chinese Painting To Wearable Art: The Development Of Wearable Art Design Process Model And Evaluation Methods For Wearable Art Designers, Ling Zhang

Ling Zhang

Wearable art is “art composed of materials structured so they can be worn on the body and that exhibit visually exciting design elements and principles” (Bryant & Hoffman, 1994, P.86). It is a unique (Becker, 1987) and visible symbol that not only depicts the mood of a designer, but also communicates her/his belief, life style, culture, knowledge, and aesthetic tastes to the world. The goals of creating this wearable art collection were to: (a) incorporate traditional Chinese Xie Yi painting themes, ideals or motifs into modern fashion designs with the silhouettes of Western clothing through the use of a ...

Barong Tagalong, Sabrina Skerston, Ellen C. Mckinney

Ellen C. McKinney

The barong tagalong, also known as the barong Filipino or simply the barong, is the national men's shirt of the Philippines. It is a long-sleeved, collared shirt, buttoning halfway down the front. Traditionally, the barong is made of white, transparent cloth with embroidery around the buttons. The shirt is usually woven out of pina fiber, which is harvested from the leaves of the pineapple plant.


Faja, Ellen C. Mckinney Mar 2019

Faja, Ellen C. Mckinney

Ellen C. McKinney

The faja is a compression undergarment, similar to a girdle. The faja is worn very tight on the body to create an extremely curvy hourglass figure. The undergarment shifts organs and flesh and has been said to reduce one's appetite. The degree of figure shaping and body compression depends on the fabric composition. Versions can be found in mixtures of spandex, cotton, nylon, or latex; the less forgiving the material, the more flattering the effect. The undergarment may be closed with hooks, a zipper, or both.

About Dams Time: Preserving And Integrating Conversation Photography At The Indianapolis Museum Of Art, Rebecca Pattillo

Rebecca Pattillo

The Clowes Collection of Old Master Paintings housed at the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) includes seventy-eight works by Flemish, Spanish, English, Dutch, and Italian masters, comprising some of the museum’s most important artworks. The IMA has recently embarked on an interdepartmental project to create a new digital catalog that will highlight the history of each piece. What makes this publication unique is an emphasis on the conservation history as documented in thousands of images, including X-ray, infrared, and UV photographs. In order to facilitate this project, it became necessary to bring together all conservation imagery regarding the Clowes ...

Case Study As A Means To Document And Promote Creative Pattern Cutting Processes, Ellen Mckinney Jul 2016

Case Study As A Means To Document And Promote Creative Pattern Cutting Processes, Ellen Mckinney

Ellen C. McKinney

Practical experiences of traditional and emerging processes in creative pattern cutting can be successfully documented and promoted through case study. Case study is a comprehensive research strategy for investigating an empirical topic by following a set of pre-specified procedures (Yin, 1994). The case study method is different from research methods such as experiments and surveys where statistical generalization is used to extend the results to a larger population. In the case study method, analytic generalization is used to generalize from the case study to theoretical propositions. This paper explores reasons and solutions for undocumented pattern cutting knowledge. Pattern cutters mentally ...

Open Access: A Model For Sharing Published Conservation Research, Peter D. Verheyen, Priscilla Anderson, Whitney Baker, Beth Doyle Apr 2014

Open Access: A Model For Sharing Published Conservation Research, Peter D. Verheyen, Priscilla Anderson, Whitney Baker, Beth Doyle

Peter D Verheyen

The conservation field has articulated the importance of publishing our research to disseminate information and further the aims of conservation. Article X of AIC’s Code of Ethics states that conservators should “contribute to the evolution and growth of the profession, a field of study that encompasses the liberal arts and the natural sciences” in part by “sharing of information and experience with colleagues, adding to the profession’s written body of knowledge.” Our Guidelines for Practice state “the conservation professional should recognize the importance of published information that has undergone formal peer review,” because, as Commentary 2.1 indicates ...

Pragmatism And Compromise In Conservation, Peter D. Verheyen Feb 2012

Pragmatism And Compromise In Conservation, Peter D. Verheyen

Peter D Verheyen

I write this from the perspective of an apprentice-trained bookbinder and conservator who has spent most of his career working in academic research libraries in the US, work that has included working primarily with special collections, but also heavily used circulating collections and digitization. During this time I have also worked with many other conservators, interns from conservation/preservation programs and students of museum studies and librarianship. While the mission ensuring the long-term health of and continued access to the Library’s collections has not changed, how we do that work and prioritize activities has. This has been a result ...


Teaching With Archives: Searching For Oliver Smith's Designs, Patrick Finelli Dec 2011

Teaching With Archives: Searching For Oliver Smith's Designs, Patrick Finelli

Patrick Finelli

This essay describes research centered on the American scenographer Oliver Smith. Design students were presented challenges related to archival identification, access, investigation, and presentation of findings. The students framed their inquiry according to conventional practice, searching library collections and then following bibliographic threads as they expanded their keyword search inquiries to other collections. The objectives were to distinguish between biographical and archival research, uncover works of art in physical repositories, and examine rough sketches and finished renderings in order to illuminate the creative imagination of the designer. The students believed that the problem of gaining access to physical archives could ...

Narrative Convergence, Cross-Sited Productions And The Archival Dilemma, Marc Ruppel Jan 2009

Narrative Convergence, Cross-Sited Productions And The Archival Dilemma, Marc Ruppel

David Phung

This article addresses the speculative role of digital preservation from the standpoint of convergent literatures. `Cross-sited narratives', multimodal stories told across media channels, are introduced here as a specific mode of narrative instrumentality. It is argued that contemporary models of the archive structured on organizational models such as genetic criticism and on preservational models such as emulation and migration are not equipped to handle cross-sited works, as they are premised on mono-media sensibilities. Primarily exploring Mark Danielewski's House of Leaves (2000) and Neil Young's Greendale (2003), two works that resist digitization both materially and thematically, the claim is ...
