Books / Vessels / Hours, Lara Head

Graduate School of Art Theses

My thesis works two vessels, book : 300 hours and book : terrain explore and enact states of meditation, focusing on the process of making and the specificity of materials used. The meditative aspects of my process of making correlate to an anticipated meditation in the observer's time spent viewing. I hope to spark in the viewer the same response and state that I myself was in while making. In this text I explore my artistic process and what I hope for the viewer to experience while they are spending time with my works. I discuss how spending time making the ...


Unspooling Of Experience Into Space: Diary Projects, Jinhee Kim May 2018

Unspooling Of Experience Into Space: Diary Projects, Jinhee Kim

Graduate School of Art Theses

Through meditation and layering of yarns, I visually present the process of embracing myself, specifically my personal traumas, and cultural duality. The tension between concealing and revealing of constant shifts in emotion is a crucial facet of my artwork. Evolving from an art therapy technique, the Winnicott Squiggle Game, I am drawn to the connections one can make with one another from a simple cluster of lines and create images as a result. These images are a result of intention and accident, a combination that mimics inevitable life choices.

My method of creating each canvas is a very intricate process ...


Distraction And Community: The Magic Of Playtime, Heather Alfaro May 2017

Distraction And Community: The Magic Of Playtime, Heather Alfaro

Graduate School of Art Theses

Experiencing awkward encounters due to an anxious disposition, I create work that fulfills my own needs to fulfill the needs of others. By manipulating environments and providing props and crafted items, I take control of the situation to function within. Using craft, gift-giving and play, I encourage the audience to participate within my work—fostering community by providing an opportunity to play. Being ever fleeting, the encounters with the work and with the other participants distracts to allow the audience to lose themselves. When the work is gone, the memory lives on to comfort, and to inspire.


A Hazy Bliss, Anna Joo May 2017

A Hazy Bliss, Anna Joo

Bachelor of Fine Arts Senior Papers

There were tangerines and apples stained with strawberry pink. Some yellow pears, smooth as silk, some white grapes covered with a silver bloom and a big cluster of purple ones. These last she had bought to tone in with the new dining-room carpet. Yes, that did sound rather far-fetched and absurd, but it was really why she had bought them. She had thought in the shop: "I must have some purple ones to bring the carpet up to the table." And it had seemed quite sense at the time.

When she had finished with them and had made two pyramids ...


Delicious-Ology: The Science Of Delicious Food, Sasha Yan Apr 2012

Delicious-Ology: The Science Of Delicious Food, Sasha Yan

Undergraduate Theses—Unrestricted

You can read this book two ways. If you want to “just cook,” flip to the recipe index, pick a recipe, and skip straight to that page. The surrounding text will explain some aspects of the science behind the recipe. While the recipes in this book are chosen to complement and provide examples of the science, they’re also recipes that are fantastic in and of themselves.

The History Of Miniature Books, Doris Varner Welsh Jan 1987

The History Of Miniature Books, Doris Varner Welsh

Books and Monographs

The miniature book as a separate class of book to be collected…was not recognized until the last half of the 19th century when the Empress Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III, owned a collection of miniature books, reported to have contained between 1800 and 2000 volumes. Thus the documented history of collectors and collections of miniature books really covers less than a hundred years. However, references to individual miniature books have been found during all periods of recorded history.

Miniature Books: Their History From The Beginnings To The Present Day, Louis W. Bondy Jan 1981

Miniature Books: Their History From The Beginnings To The Present Day, Louis W. Bondy

Books and Monographs

Miniature books -- that is books not more than 3 inches (76 mm) in height -- have always fascinated booklovers. A good number of manuscript volumes still exist, but this history begins with the advent of printing. It tells their story, from the Officium Beatae Virginis Mariae printed by Mathias Moravius in Naples in A.D. 1486 to the present time when new printing methods, and perhaps a growing belief that small is beautiful, have greatly increased the number of enthusiastic collectors.


Three Centuries Of Thumb Bibles: A Checklist, Ruth Elizabeth Adomeit Jan 1980

Three Centuries Of Thumb Bibles: A Checklist, Ruth Elizabeth Adomeit

Books and Monographs

Garland Reference Library of the Humanities (Vol. 127)

From the Introduction: What exactly is a "Thumb Bible"? It has been variously described as an abstract, an epitome, a summary, a synopsis, a paraphrase, or an abridgement of the Bible…. It is an attempt to summarize the entire Bible within a tiny volume written for children. It may be in prose or in verse or even in pictures, but it is a condensed version of either one or both Testaments, usually the latter, but it is not a complete book of the Bible nor is it a book of Bible texts ...
