Remixing Remix Remixed, Joshua Cornelis May 2014

Remixing Remix Remixed, Joshua Cornelis

Graduate School of Art Theses

Remix culture plays an important role in the expression and communication of visual art. It is a discourse by which I strive to directly engage culture by cutting and pasting together already existing visual information. By doing so, I strive to promote an exchange of ideas and feelings between juxtaposed pieces. In this age of post-digital era collage, I am interested in the meaning and propaganda associated with collage and assemblage and the modes of disseminating messages via cut-and-paste.

By juxtaposing images that differ in style, content, and meaning, I am able to build panoramas of fractured identities that manifest ...


Art That Demonstrates: Action And Contemplation, David J. Baker May 2014

Art That Demonstrates: Action And Contemplation, David J. Baker

Graduate School of Art Theses

Abstract

Our culture is permeated with "noise" that detracts from what really matters: a life of helping others. By making an effort to save time for reflection and contemplation, artists, who actively define our contemporary culture, can greatly benefit society and offer an alternative to this "noise." By focusing on ethical considerations and transforming one's core values, artists can begin to demonstrate the self-sacrificing qualities that assist and enlighten a society. This thesis examines some crucial spiritual and artistic works that counter the distractions that keep people from living the lives they were meant to live. Further, it describes ...


Violence Against Women: An Artistic Intervention, Kathryn Douglas May 2014

Violence Against Women: An Artistic Intervention, Kathryn Douglas

Graduate School of Art Theses

We have many tools available to impede violence against women. Legislative circles, educational systems, and advocacy groups all work tirelessly to eradicate these heinous crimes and serve the victims of abuse. However violence against women is still described as “‘the most pervasive human rights challenge’ in the world today”.1

For some it can be difficult to view socially engaged art making as an essential component of women’s advocacy compared to immediate housing, legal counsel, help hotlines, and the education of women. Blurring the lines between activism and art history, this relatively new art form is often embraced by ...


A Face With A View, Cassie S. Jones May 2014

A Face With A View, Cassie S. Jones

Graduate School of Art Theses

This thesis serves to examine my practice as a visual artist. In its contents I consider both the internal image and the external image and the constant negotiation that happens between these two sets of images. What comes to represent the internal is my own image, in particular, my face. What comes to represent the external are prevailing images of socially idealized beauty. Likewise, I argue that the face becomes especially important in this negotiation as it is the intersection between the internal and the external; the self and the social. Using artists such as Vito Acconci, Orlan, and Andy ...


A Composed Space, Adam S. Hogan May 2014

A Composed Space, Adam S. Hogan

Graduate School of Art Theses

My practice is invested in expanding our conscious scope—revealing phenomena and observations, and presenting the information to the viewer through auxiliary channels. Using the language of minimalism, cinema, and abstraction I create technologically sophisticated systems to produce spaces of contemplation (a meditative space challenging the ephemeral relationships between our sensorial perceptions, space, and time).

Material, space, and technology become instruments for composition manifesting as silent experimental cinema (created and controlled sonically). My work seeks to illuminate our conscious scope through the succession of frames.


Seth Czaplewski Thesis, Seth P. Czaplewski May 2014

Seth Czaplewski Thesis, Seth P. Czaplewski

Graduate School of Art Theses

My work investigates the history of production and how human interactions have been affected by shifts in production over the course of the past two hundred years in the United States: the pre-industrial, Industrial Revolution, and the post-industrial age. The changes that occurred in society as a result of how production shifted from era to era informs my artistic practice and productions, which address areas neglected in the wake of progress. At the onset of each era, the technological advances initially appeared to be beneficial to society and people shifted from being locally oriented to being globally oriented.

My historical ...


Desire And Fantasy: The Conditions Of Reality Between The Self And The Other, Raleigh M. Gardiner May 2014

Desire And Fantasy: The Conditions Of Reality Between The Self And The Other, Raleigh M. Gardiner

Graduate School of Art Theses

The human condition is constituted by the fluctuating operations of desire and fantasy, which emerge in response to one's fundamental differentiation between 'Self' and 'Other.' As infants, we exist in an expansive realm of sensational “sameness” with the world around us; but as we develop, we quickly learn to differentiate between our internal and external worlds, and are forced to divide and organize our once primordial experience of unity on the basis of isolated exclusion of difference. As we slip into the structures of our social and cultural reality, we absorb language, and are taught to construct our own ...


The Thing You Are Looking For, Jessie Shinn May 2014

Graduate School of Art Theses

This thesis document explores the influences and content of visual artist Jessie Shinn’s work, in particular the photography she has done as part of her Master of Fine Arts degree program at Washington University in St. Louis.

Important artists and movements mentioned are Caspar David Friedrich, J.M.W. Turner and Romanticism; Alfred Stieglitz and Modernism; and contemporary artists Hiroshi Sugimoto, Uta Barth and Wolfgang Tillmans. Writers and philosophers Samuel Coleridge, Rainer Maria Rilke, Rei Terada, Kathleen Stewart, David Markson, David Foster Wallace, Jacques Derrida and ...


Ergonomically Designing Art Objects, Ambika Subramaniam May 2014

Ergonomically Designing Art Objects, Ambika Subramaniam

Undergraduate Theses—Unrestricted

The following thesis examines the work of Ambika Subramaniam, in particular her thesis installation Ergonomically Designing Art Objects, for the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture at Washington University in St. Louis. Based within a discussion of semiotics, the thesis researches furniture signification and tracks its evolution through traditional form, ergonomic function, and consumed product. Major points include the ways in which objects are capable of collapsing and retaining the semiotic divide between a sign and referent, and how that signification relates to contemporary design-oriented products. Using the chair as the exemplifying object, the thesis installation questions how objects have ...


Painting And Stuff, Lol, Sopearb Touch May 2014

Painting And Stuff, Lol, Sopearb Touch

Graduate School of Art Theses

Our own human experience is a distinct realm which can never be precisely duplicated in another lifetime. It frames our whole view of existence and, as artists, affects our art making process. The theory of the Tabula Rasa functions as the inspiration of my work and this writing examines my personal view of growing up in the internet age and America, and how my view of life, as well as artistic practice, is shaped by a consumerist culture that has gone global. Additionally, as a figurative painter, I create a context with other artists who create work about their own ...


Suppressing My Inner Caravaggio, Nathan A. Childs May 2014

Suppressing My Inner Caravaggio, Nathan A. Childs

Graduate School of Art Theses

FULK ART is a body of work that stems out of the divisions and segments of the constructed narrative germane to the notions of "art world" and "art worlds". In his theses Nathan Childs argues that his contemporary studio practice is not rooted in the post production criticism of his objects. Rather his art is a "techne" that hybridizes his daily habits as rituals of making. These rituals are self reverent inspections of multi sided issues, set into a dynamic state. The "third side" of the coin device is a habit of life style that allows Childs to reach deeper ...


Countering The Voyage Of The Present: Histories Speak Fragmented In 25 Frames Per Second, Vanessa Kelly Gravenor May 2014

Countering The Voyage Of The Present: Histories Speak Fragmented In 25 Frames Per Second, Vanessa Kelly Gravenor

Undergraduate Theses—Unrestricted

My thesis work presents a meditation on what it means to be contemporary. There are many ideas that prefigure this work but are not included in this written investigation.These notions come from Nietzsche’s Untimely Meditations and Walter Benjamin’s Illuminations. In these texts, the authors state that the contemporary is the one who turns her or his back from her or his time and looks at the past. For my purposes, to be contemporary, one has to revolutionize the notion of histories in order to make past materials relevant. Therefore, my videos and photographic works do not invite ...


Silence And Slow Time, Steve W. G. Byrnes May 2014

Silence And Slow Time, Steve W. G. Byrnes

Graduate School of Art Theses

This thesis explores abstract painting from the perspective of a material based production, drawing parallels from poetry to augment its position. Building upon existing material-driven painting traditions such as Abstract Expressionism, and examining their physiological affects from a scientific perspective, it aims to substantiate a more corporeal approach to understanding and interacting with painting.


You Can't Roller Skate In A Buffalo Herd, Daniel Stumeier May 2014

You Can't Roller Skate In A Buffalo Herd, Daniel Stumeier

Graduate School of Art Theses

Works and writings from various fields will be discussed throughout the following thesis, including those from contemporary art, anthropology, ethnology and literary theory. Particular attention will be paid to my studio practice as well as the work of artists: Amy Sillman, Eva Hesse, Richard Tuttle, Jackson Pollock, Donald Judd, Mary Heilmann, Haim Steinbach, Mike Kelley and Marcel Duchamp. Other important materials and texts that will be used to support my argument include: the 2007 group exhibition “Unmonumental: The Object in the 21st Century” at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, poet and art critic Raphael Rubenstein’s essay, “Provisional ...

Graduate School of Art Theses

Aesthetics can be proposed through language. Metaphysical experience through technology is an accumulation of information. My practice accentuates the failure of languages that are mediated through technology. Using readymade objects as a signifier for collective experience, I create sets for films that have never existed. Rooted in the conceptual terrain, I seek to concretize the intangible, my sculptural installation was assembled by objects conceived as unknown, or coded messages, and largely applied the color matte black. Matte black, for its non-color, accomplishes openness – freedom. The immersive experience of darkness also echoes with the cinematic environment. Ultimately, my work functions as ...


Reemit Vexing Truces Struck, Defiled, And Rehung, Sean E. Fitzgibbons May 2014

Reemit Vexing Truces Struck, Defiled, And Rehung, Sean E. Fitzgibbons

Graduate School of Art Theses

Within his studio practice Sean FitzGibbons imposes limitations upon his processes, methods of sourcing materials, and fabrication of artwork. He relies on the viewer to apply their personal narrative to his work. Through a bricoleur approach to creating artwork, he uses signifiers to clue the viewer into his intended narratives, but people come to his work with varying life experiences, and therefore generate their own stories. The act of constructing a narrative within Sean’s work is a rigorous and performative process; the rigor he applies to creating a fictional universe gives his work authenticity. Treating his studio the same ...

Between The Map And The Territory: Taking The World Apart In The Age Of Un-Discovery, Carla Lacey Fisher Schwartz May 2013

Between The Map And The Territory: Taking The World Apart In The Age Of Un-Discovery, Carla Lacey Fisher Schwartz

All Theses and Dissertations (ETDs)

The map is demonstrative of a basic human impulse, the desire to understand our surroundings and our position within the world. Through the activity of mapmaking, we aspire to comprehend comprehensively, but the very nature of the map allows for only partial understanding. Despite this objective for total knowledge, the blank space of a map is a necessity; in order for a map to be useful it must leave some aspects out. This blank space, along with other blanks in visual representation, is an active silence, and holds meaning in its absence.

While the map attempts to represent a territory ...


Artificial Landscapes: Reflecting Interior Worlds, Vivian Zapata May 2013

Artificial Landscapes: Reflecting Interior Worlds, Vivian Zapata

Graduate School of Art Theses

In this study I examine ideas of nature, human nature, and artificial nature that are relevant to my work. I explain that the natural realm is a physical presence in the world and that it is also a cultural construct. My work is concerned with metaphorical representations of nature and I contextualize my artwork within the work of modern and contemporary artists who create artificial representations of nature that reference landscapes. I relate that I am disturbed by our current culture’s inharmonious relationship with the natural realm and explain how my work opposes our cultural anthropocentrism and the collective ...

High Risk: Michigan's Coastline In Danger, Adira Jenna Weixlmann May 2012

High Risk: Michigan's Coastline In Danger, Adira Jenna Weixlmann

Undergraduate Theses—Unrestricted

Practically every summer since I was 10-years-old, my family has been going to Lake Michigan. But how much longer will that last? 31 out of 41 coastal counties of Michigan are considered High Risk Erosion Areas. Though the beaches are currently disappearing rapidly, with proper care, the situation can improve.


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.
