From Commission To Social Movement: Research-Led Design In Action, Haneen Al Sharif, Hadeer Omar, Patricia Duignan

Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities Conference Proceedings

In May 2013 the Center for Research Design and Entrepreneurship received a commission from the company Maersk Oil Qatar to design a brochure about the proper installation and use of child car seats. The team tasked with creating the brochure began with a question: how can design change peoples’ behavior? This question was the first step toward the quick evolution and exponential expansion of the project from a single brochure on child car seats to a nation-wide campaign and social movement encompassing all aspects of road safety.

In Qatar traffic accidents account for one out of every eight deaths, and ...

Between Paper And Porcelain, Alternative Printmaking Techniques, Thomas Lucas Sep 2014

Between Paper And Porcelain, Alternative Printmaking Techniques, Thomas Lucas

The Mid-America Print Council Conference

As contemporary printmakers continue to push the boundaries of the printmaking medium across the disciplines, the role of the print has proved an important creative element with mediums such as ceramics. This demonstration will showcase traditional printmaking techniques such as etching and lithography transfer applications to porcelain clay. The ceramics community has been aware of printmaking techniques such as screenprinting and monoprinting for many years. These approaches have opened up, the possibilities for applying images on the surfaces of ceramic vessels and sculptural forms. As well as, supporting a more interdisciplinary perspective towards the arts in general.

The idea of ...


“Recreating The Tinted Lithograph Using Stones And Photo-Plates”, Beauvais Lyons Sep 2014

“Recreating The Tinted Lithograph Using Stones And Photo-Plates”, Beauvais Lyons

The Mid-America Print Council Conference

This technical demonstration will present a simple and direct approach to combining stone and plate lithography to recreate tinted lithographs common to the first half of the 19th century. My approach is an adaptation of methods described in Michael Twyman’s book The Techniques of Drawing on Stone in England and France and Their Application to Works of Typography (Oxford University Press, 1970). The tinted lithograph uses the same principles as the chiaroscuro woodcut, but is capable of achieving a significantly broad range of tones. It is also a very good method to introduce the principles of color lithography ...

Salvaging Print: Letterhead In Post-Industrial Urban America, Nancy Sharon Collins

The Mid-America Print Council Conference

This panel will explore the link between today’s small press movement and the formal aspects of commercial printing during the American 20th century. Panelists include Christine Medley , Philip Gattuso, and Nancy Bernardo.

Using as its primary example letterhead from defunct companies in Detroit, and secondarily, specimens of business and legal letterhead from other urban centers of the industrial United States, this panel will examine and discuss: What did letterhead represent to 20th century printers in local markets such as Detroit? What is the significance of printed letterhead, and stationery, to the art of small press printing in post-industrial cities ...


Finding Printmaking’S Place In A Interdisciplinary And Post-Digital World, Jonathan M. Mcfadden, David Wischer Sep 2014

Finding Printmaking’S Place In A Interdisciplinary And Post-Digital World, Jonathan M. Mcfadden, David Wischer

The Mid-America Print Council Conference

Over the past decade there has been an ever-increasing number of digital and post-digital processes being introduced into the studio. Post-digital refers to media that has emerged in the field after the acceptance of digital processes (inkjet printing, digital photography and video, etc.) which, includes the incorporation of Computer Numeric Control (CNC) routers, laser etchers, water-jets, rapid prototyping software, vinyl cutters, drawing machines, and most recently 3-D printing capabilities. As with most new technology over time, the equipment becomes more affordable and use of the technology becomes more accessible to the artist and institution.

At the same time post digital ...

The Artist And The Rebel: The Art Of Graffiti And Its Impact On Memory Architecture, Stephen A. Setman May 2014

The Artist And The Rebel: The Art Of Graffiti And Its Impact On Memory Architecture, Stephen A. Setman

Celebration

The lasting presence of graffiti in major cities like Berlin raises the question, what kind of perspective does such an art form have on memory? Given that graffiti are written or painted on structures and buildings, which are already their own kind of monument, and that the content of graffiti tends towards the politically and socially critical, how are we to understand the relationship of these works to places of memory creation? Why, for example, do we sometimes give monumental protection (Denkmanlschutz) to works of graffiti, and why so often not? My research investigates the roll of graffiti in cultural ...

Graphic Novels: Creation Of "The Bloody Man", Taylor Buckley Apr 2014

Graphic Novels: Creation Of "The Bloody Man", Taylor Buckley

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

I created a 26-page comic book, created to be a teaser trailer into a ongoing series. In my work, I sought to create rich, dynamic characters that functioned in a fantasy world grounded in reality. Special care was given to create logical costumes and destroy common tropes found in fantasy literature. I also worked to improve my technical skills in drawing the dynamic figure on motion, my understanding of color, and composition.

I broke my project down into two semesters. In the fall, I created the sketch work for the pages. This included small panel thumbnails, research (architectural, kinetic, photographic ...


Plastic Recycling In Ghana, Brenda Klutzke, Kellen O'Brien, Zane Pennock Apr 2014

Plastic Recycling In Ghana, Brenda Klutzke, Kellen O'Brien, Zane Pennock

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

The presented research focuses on repurposing the large amounts of plastic bag waste present in Ghana. Much of this waste originates from water sachets, made from non-biodegradable plastic. The water sachets allow for potable water to be easily stored, accessed and transported. Ghana creates approximately 270 tons of plastic waste per day, with 85% of that plastic waste due solely to water. Less than 2% of this waste is currently being recycled. Water sachets have been the main supply of drinking water in Ghana for a decade, leading to an immense build-up of discarded plastic throughout the nation. Professor Chris ...


3d Virtual Prototyping In Apparel Design, Hanna Hoch Apr 2014

3d Virtual Prototyping In Apparel Design, Hanna Hoch

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

Three-dimensional (3D) virtual prototyping, i.e. simulation of stitching 2D garment patterns and draping them onto body models, minimizes lead times and costs of producing physical prototypes (2-10 per style); and provides flexibility and efficiency for product development and communication among globally distributed teams of designers, manufactures, and retailers. In the competitive global apparel industry, there is an increasing demand for the professionals who are competent in using 3D virtual prototyping. Therefore, it is very important to understand the potential of current technologies (e.g. 3D body scanning and 3D CAD) for virtual apparel prototyping, data exchange among these technologies ...


The Design Of A Mobile, Animatronic Bald Eagle, Eric Burns Apr 2014

The Design Of A Mobile, Animatronic Bald Eagle, Eric Burns

Phi Kappa Phi Research Symposium

Modern animatronics are used as a tool to help engage audiences in realistic and entertaining experiences. Many animatronic figures are dynamic in movement, but static in mobility. The research presented covers the beginnings of mobile animatronic research. An animatronic bald eagle, Opportunity, was designed for that purpose. Animations for Opportunity are generated by integration of Arduino, Pololu Mini Maestro, and Hitec Servo Motors. Arduino receives signals from flex sensors which cause voltage variations when “flexed”. The 1:1 scale, animatronic eagle can be perched on the arm of an “actor” who simulates an eagle’s caretaker. The flex sensors are ...

"Synthesizing Cubism And Surrealism: Wifredo Lam's 1940s Cuban Works", Kelsey Winiarsky Mar 2014

"Synthesizing Cubism And Surrealism: Wifredo Lam's 1940s Cuban Works", Kelsey Winiarsky

Africana Studies Student Research Conference

As a modernist artist, Wifredo Lam used issues of racial degradation and colonialism as a catalyst to create work that directly addressed issues of colonialism in Cuba. Akin to Picasso’s process of appropriating of African motifs within a modern, Cubist style, Wifredo Lam created and appropriated a pastiche of both Surrealistic and Cubist styles into his 1940s paintings. The utilization of these modern styles engendered Lam’s international reputation while providing him with a powerful, creative outlet to express his struggle as an Afro-Cuban. Through the use of African masks and the Santería religion in his paintings during this ...

P-21 Teaching Strategy: Explaining The History And Themes Of Abstract Expressionism To High School Students Through The Integrative Model, Kirk Maynard

Honors Scholars & Undergraduate Research Poster Symposium Programs

The purpose of my thesis is to create a blueprint for teachers to explain art history to students in an efficient way without many blueprints and precedence to guide them. I have chosen to focus my topic on Abstract Expressionism and the model that I will be using to present the concept of Abstract Expressionism will be the integrated model instructional strategy. This integrated model will serve as the guide to creating well crafted art history lessons in the classroom. This integrated model will also be laid out and summarized in a lesson plan designed to give the teacher direction ...


P-20 Isolation And Disconnection, Lynda Lee Mar 2014

P-20 Isolation And Disconnection, Lynda Lee

Honors Scholars & Undergraduate Research Poster Symposium Programs

As one of the most recurrent subjects of visual art, the human form has been an important means of communicating human experiences and expressing the philosophical and scientific thoughts of a society. During the early 20th century, artists in Europe began distorting and abstracting the human figure in ways that were unprecedented and often times visually unsettling to emphasize its withdrawn and isolated condition while also suggesting a sense of fragility and vulnerability. Although there are various forms of isolation that can result from a number of different causes, this project explores the concept of social isolation brought about by ...


Confounding Dystopian/Utopian Vision: Otto Dix, Walter Benjamin, And The Allegorical Mode, Althea Ruoppo Mar 2014

Confounding Dystopian/Utopian Vision: Otto Dix, Walter Benjamin, And The Allegorical Mode, Althea Ruoppo

Arts and Letters Conference

Much of Otto Dix’s (1891-1969) artistic practice reflects the traumatic effects of distinct socio-historical experiences: the brutality and inhumanity of the First World War, the depravities of a decadent Weimar society, the oppressive cultural policies of the Third Reich, the horrors of World War II, and the post-war division of Germany into two states, East and West. This paper explores Dix’s late works, considering his use of allegory following the National Socialists’ rise to power and through the postwar period. In order to surmise the functional significance of allegory, it reads Dix’s paintings in light of Walter ...
