Magic At The Movies: Positive Psychology For Children, Adolescents And Families, Linda Jones Rufer Md Aug 2014

Magic At The Movies: Positive Psychology For Children, Adolescents And Families, Linda Jones Rufer Md

Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Capstone Projects

Children learn in part from what they see and hear, whether modeling parents’ or peers’ behavior, reading books, or viewing movies. Parents and their children share the same and often unspoken goal—to live “the good life”—in a state of well-being. Character strengths are foundational to well-being, and movies are a rich source with which to build character strengths and hence flourishing. However, even though movies are considered efficacious (and more rigorous studies are needed), there are minimal resources for parents on how to use this powerful tool with their children and teenagers. Movies are presented here as an ...


Wonders Of Wisconsin: A Study On Insect Macrophotography, Brenna L. Decker Jun 2014

Wonders Of Wisconsin: A Study On Insect Macrophotography, Brenna L. Decker

Lawrence University Honors Projects

This past year I have been honing my skills as an entomologist and as a photographer. My solo exhibition “Wonders of Wisconsin: A Study on Insect Macrophotography” not only presents my personal progress, but also represents an overarching theme of a liberal arts education: connectivity. Everything we see or learn on campus and throughout life is connected. This audience-engaging exhibition has provided a visual for the connections between the fields of science and studio art, the art movements of New Objectivity and Relational Aesthetics, and between human and insect life.

The final exhibition opening on May 1st at 5 ...


Stonehouse Residency: Koszut Artist Residency, Cas Grant, Mary Beth Koszut Jun 2014

Stonehouse Residency: Koszut Artist Residency, Cas Grant, Mary Beth Koszut

Faculty Scholarship and Creative Work – Art

Objective

I was looking to create a new series of artworks to push myself past my current habits of production to reach a new level in my artistic practice. During a focused period of study, I hoped to overcome the struggles that comes with developing a new concept for a new series of images. As my artwork is inspired by nature, I was looking to research new plant forms, (specifically those that grow air roots in order to sustain themselves), experiment with new media to begin an abstracted mixed media, air root series, and gather resource images for further work ...

Student Scholarship & Creative Works By Year

Catalogue of an exhibition at the Trout Gallery, April 25 - May 17, 2014.

Senior Exhibit, Art and Art History Department, Prof. Todd Arsenault, Dickinson College.

The title of this year’s exhibition, Not in Show, is a reference to all of the work made that will not be seen in the exhibition. The work in this catalogue, and the exhibition, are the success stories. It took many failed works and a strong sense of resolve in order to get to this point. Specifically, what Not in Show also attempts to address are the unknown aspects in the process of creation ...

In The Air Tonight: An Uncommon Interface For Common Concern, Maggie Chan, Dave Colangelo, Patricio Davila, Robert Tu Apr 2014

In The Air Tonight: An Uncommon Interface For Common Concern, Maggie Chan, Dave Colangelo, Patricio Davila, Robert Tu

Theater + Film Faculty Publications and Presentations

This paper is concerned with addressing social concerns with large-scale, multi-modal media art that uses digital networks, reactive architecture, and the city as semiotic resources. As artists and designers who are involved in socially engaged practice, we see an important role in foregrounding political and social issues through networks and architecture, negotiating and furnishing access to both while shaping compelling interfaces that allow people to contribute by amplifying an area of common concern. We discuss some previous work by Davila and Colangelo and focus on our latest project, In The Air, Tonight, which aims to visualize local wind patterns combined ...


Immaterial Traditions: Evolving Values In The Practice & Preservation Of Bhutanese Calligraphy, Madeline Johnson Apr 2014

Immaterial Traditions: Evolving Values In The Practice & Preservation Of Bhutanese Calligraphy, Madeline Johnson

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

Lying somewhere between art, craft and document, the place of calligraphy in Bhutanese culture is difficult to singularly define: individual practice and motivation conform to the predetermined aesthetic of alphabets, and creativity serves the pragmatic end of documentation. In Bhutan's ancient history, the art of handwriting developed out of necessity, used for religious records and correspondences Bhutanese society, given the convenience of digital text. While cultural preservation has been a political imperative in Bhutan since the 1960's, the preservation of traditional crafts is mostly limited to those that appeal to increasing tourist market. While the active preservation of ...

Eating Out: Food And Sex, Cannibalism And Prostitution: An Analysis Of Sex And Eating As Parallel Methods Of Consumption In Film, Rose M. Jimenez

Graduate Student Publications and Research

This piece analyzes aspects of the parallel framing of sexuality and food throughout 20th and 21st century film. It is a rare analysis of film naturalism with common themes that include the comparison of the body, especially the female body, to meat and other food, and ideas of prostitution and cannibalism as methods of consumption of the human body. Films span over 100 years of cinema, from mainstream blockbuster films to underground international film.


Advances In Documentation, Digital Curation, Virtual Exhibition, And A Test Of 3d Geometric Morhpometrics: A Case Study Of The Vanderpool Vessels From The Ancestral Caddo Territory, Robert Z. Selden Jr., Timothy K. Perttula, Michael J. O'Brien Jan 2014

Advances In Documentation, Digital Curation, Virtual Exhibition, And A Test Of 3d Geometric Morhpometrics: A Case Study Of The Vanderpool Vessels From The Ancestral Caddo Territory, Robert Z. Selden Jr., Timothy K. Perttula, Michael J. O'Brien

CRHR: Archaeology

Three-dimensional (3D) digital scanning of archaeological materials is typically used as a tool for artifact documentation. With the permission of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma, 3D documentation of Caddo funerary vessels from the Vanderpool site (41SM77) was conducted with the initial goal of ensuring that these data would be publicly available for future research long after the vessels were repatriated. A digital infrastructure was created to archive and disseminate the resultant 3D datasets, ensuring that they would be accessible by both researchers and the general public (CRHR 2014a). However, 3D imagery can be used for much more than documentation. To ...


Locative Histories: Exploring The Continued Influence Of Early Locative Media Art, Conor Mcgarrigle Jan 2014

Locative Histories: Exploring The Continued Influence Of Early Locative Media Art, Conor Mcgarrigle

Articles

This paper, which draws on aspects of my doctoral research, traces the influence of early Locative Media Art on the current form and application of location-aware technologies. The mechanisms and impulse for this influence are introduced and analyzed and it is proposed that they point to new approaches in the consideration of the agency of Locative Media art.

I return to the origins of Locative Media at the Karosta workshop and the ambitions of early practitioners to argue that the practice was based on a prescient analysis of the potential for ubiquitous networked location-awareness. From this analysis was developed an ...
