Water Being Water, Ronald R. Geibert, Wright State University Art Galleries Sep 2005

Water Being Water, Ronald R. Geibert, Wright State University Art Galleries

Exhibition and Program Catalogs

IQ. DNA. MRI. FYI. In an ever-changing world, we find ourselves conversing with abbreviated acronyms and phrases. They drive today's economy, political agenda, and water cooler chitchat. They define our use of resources and the attention given to matters. Who we are, or think we are, are wrapped around their brevity. In our hurried attempt to sort through the complexities of life we use them to only answer the obvious-How? Unfortunately, an equally important question, Why? is often ignored. The solving of the how of things has generally been left to the scientists and the reasons as to the ...


On Earth, Laura Mariposa Williams May 2005

On Earth, Laura Mariposa Williams

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

When Junior year arrived, along with the opportunity to start a thesis project, Kristina Foley and I agreed that this was right opportunity for us to create a body of collaborative art works. From there we decided to present our final works at Spark Gallery. Our show, On Earth, is a collection of works in varying media. Overall, we have three videos, two narrative, photographic series, two mural photographs, a driftwood sculpture, felted pelts and photographic frames, a book of poetry and drawings held in knitted pouches, and a shadow cloth mural.

What does it mean to be working in ...


A Place Apart: Myth And Sacred Space, Diana Hazel May 2005

A Place Apart: Myth And Sacred Space, Diana Hazel

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

“When old myths are lost, new ones are needed. Myths flourish and fade and die, but new myths are born, old ones are resurrected, and hybrid forms combining new and old emerge when times change or cultures mingle” (Graves: 1959, 9).

The original concept of this project was to create a CD-ROM database of mythology from various cultures and time periods throughout history. The first few months of my work were carried out with this end in mind. Since then, the project has taken a more personal turn. Instead of presenting the mythologies of other people, I have created my ...

Taking In: 2005, Aib Students

Taking In

This book is the third edition in the Taking In: series. As was the case in Taking In: I and II, the work, dedication, detail, and graphic design is extraordinary and impressive. The work submitted by our students, and selected by our distinguished judges, reflects the eclectic vision, visual intelligence, perception, and promise of a talented student body. During this first year as a class, Taking In: worked through twice as many submissions than the previous years in half the amount of time. The stable class structure allowed a dependable process to support creativity and enabled the students, as artists ...


Millimeter Binding / Edelpappband, Peter D. Verheyen Jan 2005

Millimeter Binding / Edelpappband, Peter D. Verheyen

Libraries' and Librarians' Publications

What we call the “millimeter” binding in North America is a “nobler” version of the German “pappband,” or paper binding, hence the name “edelpappband.” The technique is based on the German case (Bradel) binding which is covered in paper. What distinguishes the technique is that cloth, leather, or vellum trim is added to the head and tail, foredges, and/or corners for greater durability, making the book more elegant at the same time. This article describes how to complete a binding using this technique.


Springback Ledger Bindings, Peter D. Verheyen Jan 2005

Springback Ledger Bindings, Peter D. Verheyen

Libraries' and Librarians' Publications

During his introduction, Richard Baker described how, while Deputy Head of the Conservation Bindery of the Johns Hopkins University Library'he was introduced to the springback binding. The historical development of the springback, originally patented in Great Britain in 1799 by John and Joseph Williams, is described in Bernard Middleton's History of English Craft Bookbinding, but Middleton does not detail the steps required to complete a binding. The springbackalso has a long history in the German binding tradition, where it continues to see regular use, especially for guestbooks. As a style, the springback is firmly rooted in the "trade ...

Course Portfolio For Artp, Arch, Ides, Txcd 140 Perceptual Drawing, Dana Fritz

UNL Faculty Course Portfolios

This Course Portfolio focuses on my drawing unit- one of the four components in the Visual Literacy curriculum. (These units are Perceptual Drawing, Speculative Drawing, Color and Composition & Analysis. They make up the studio component of UNL's interdisciplinary drawing and design foundation program.) While taken by students in differing sequences, each unit can serve as an introduction to studio art and design that will be built upon by the other units. The units are designed to complement one another and to reinforce basic skills and awareness of issues in art and design. Although the Visual Literacy program has been ...
