No Place Like Home, Sharon L. Kennedy Jan 2005

No Place Like Home, Sharon L. Kennedy

Sheldon Museum of Art Catalogues and Publications

Sentiment about home as written in this 16th-century quote is strikingly unchanged. Home provides warmth and protection and therefore meets our most basic utilitarian needs. Symbolically, having a home assures one's place in community, establishes social standing and demonstrates status within society. It is a private place where we relax, let down our guard and nurture relationships. Not having a home makes this security and belonging more difficult to obtain. In No Place Like Home artists explore the house and its transformation to home. Reflecting on the public and private aspects of home and homeless life, works in this ...

The Ultraviolet Protection Factor Of Naturally-Pigmented Cotton, Patricia Cox Crews, Gwendolyn Hustvedt Jan 2005

The Ultraviolet Protection Factor Of Naturally-Pigmented Cotton, Patricia Cox Crews, Gwendolyn Hustvedt

Faculty Publications - Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design

Textile Technology: The sun-blocking properties of a textile are enhanced when a dye, pigment, delustrant, or ultraviolet absorber finish is present that absorbs ultraviolet radiation and blocks its transmission through a fabric to the skin. For this reason, dyed fabrics provide better sun protection than bleached fabrics. Since naturally-colored cottons contain pigments that produce shades ranging from light green to tan and brown, it seemed reasonable to postulate that they would provide better sun protection than conventional bleached cotton, and that natural pigments might prove more durable to laundering and light exposure than dyes, but there is no published research ...


Biofibers From Agricultural Byproducts For Industrial Applications, Narendra Reddy, Yiqi Yang Jan 2005

Biofibers From Agricultural Byproducts For Industrial Applications, Narendra Reddy, Yiqi Yang

Faculty Publications - Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design

Lignocellulosic agricultural byproducts are a copious and cheap source for cellulose fibers. Agro-based biofibers have the composition, properties and structure that make them suitable for uses such as composite, textile, pulp and paper manufacture. In addition, biofibers can also be used to produce fuel, chemicals, enzymes and food. Byproducts produced from the cultivation of corn, wheat, rice, sorghum, barley, sugarcane, pineapple, banana and coconut are the major sources of agro-based biofibers. This review analyses the production processes, structure, properties and suitability of these biofibers for various industrial applications.


Course Portfolio For Artp, Arch, Ides, Txcd 140 Perceptual Drawing, Dana Fritz Jan 2005

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 ...
