Multifractal Structure In Nonrepresentational Art, Jonas R. Mureika, C. C. Dyer, G. C. Cupchik Oct 2005

Multifractal Structure In Nonrepresentational Art, Jonas R. Mureika, C. C. Dyer, G. C. Cupchik

Physics Faculty Works

Multifractal analysis techniques are applied to patterns in several abstract expressionist artworks, painted by various artists. The analysis is carried out on two distinct types of structures: the physical patterns formed by a specific color (“blobs”) and patterns formed by the luminance gradient between adjacent colors (“edges”). It is found that the multifractal analysis method applied to “blobs” cannot distinguish between artists of the same movement, yielding a multifractal spectrum of dimensions between about 1.5 and 1.8. The method can distinguish between different types of images, however, as demonstrated by studying a radically different type of art. The ...

'La Maggior Porcheria Del Mondo': Documents For Ammannati's Neptune Fountain, Felicia M. Else Jul 2005

'La Maggior Porcheria Del Mondo': Documents For Ammannati's Neptune Fountain, Felicia M. Else

Art and Art History Faculty Publications

The story of the creation of the Neptune Fountain on the Piazza della Signoria in Florence is long and tortuous. Scholars have drawn on a wealth of documentary material regarding the competition for the commission, the various phases of the fountain's construction, and the critical reception of its colossus, both political and aesthetic. A collection of unpublished letters at the Getty Research Center in Los Angeles offers a new perspective on the making of this major public monument. Sent by Bartolomeo Ammannati to the prvveditore of Pisa, they chronicle the artist's involvement in the procurement and transportation of ...

Collaborative Insight: Fostering Communication Between Designers And Their Clients, Andrea Brenner May 2005

Collaborative Insight: Fostering Communication Between Designers And Their Clients, Andrea Brenner

Critical and Creative Thinking Capstones Collection

The subject matter explored was a result of my curiosity as to why clients have a tendency to fixate over specific details once a design solution is proposed. Through the enlightenment of a personal experience of implementing an “educational session” for a client as part of the design process, this synthesis addresses the benefits of and ways to further develop better communication through improving relationships. Specifically the themes of engagement, dialogue, language and value are examined. These themes are essential contributions to encouraging communication and understanding between a designer and their client. Design firms effectively using these concepts will be ...

Use Of General Preservation Assessments: Process, Karen E.K. Brown May 2005

Use Of General Preservation Assessments: Process, Karen E.K. Brown

University Libraries Faculty Scholarship

This paper describes the typology of general preservation assessments and investigates what is being accomplished based on recommendations identified in the process. The author characterizes the assessment based on tabulated data. A range of institutional types and sizes are represented. The investment of staff time and the role of the consultant are examined. The most frequent goal of respondents was to develop a preservation plan. Interest in repair and reformatting was significantly less than interest in preventive activities. The findings of this study suggest that assessment reports are thorough and organized; report content is consistent across the population studied. The ...

Student Scholarship & Creative Works By Year

Catalogue of an exhibition at the Trout Gallery, April 29 - July 2, 2005.

Senior Exhibit, Art and Art History Department, Prof. Ward Davenny, Dickinson College.

No matter how surprising the outcome, the internal process of making art is evolutionary, shaped by intuition and logic.With any such long-term process, it can be difficult to assign beginnings or endings, but for these young artists, this exhibition and catalogue represent both.The sometimes agonizing arrival at a “finished product” begs the start of the next cycle. For now, only these materials, applied in these specific ways, co-exist, enhance, and help define their ...

Feeling Flat, Mindy Herman Jan 2005

Feeling Flat, Mindy Herman

Senior Research Projects

I have chosen to express myself using basic aspects of design; predominantly color, on a two-dimensional surface. The form and movement are also essential in conveying the mood or "feeling" of each piece. Each piece is simple in composition and execution. At their root feelings are raw and basic to everyone. Everyone experiences moods and emotions that are universal to everyone. They may react to them differently, but the feelings are the same.

This, my visceral reaction to color, is what I have tried to capture here. I keep the feelings at their basic, primal meaning by keeping the picture ...

Communication, Culture, And Curiosity: Using Target-Culture And Student-Generated Art In The Second Language Classroom, Deborah Berho, Victoria Defferding Jan 2005

Communication, Culture, And Curiosity: Using Target-Culture And Student-Generated Art In The Second Language Classroom, Deborah Berho, Victoria Defferding

Faculty Publications - Department of World Languages, Sociology & Cultural Studies

Studying art from the target culture and student creation of original artwork in the second language (L2) classroom have many benefits. Both provide a springboard for discussion of the culture(s) under study as well as one's own. These activities also positively change the classroom atmosphere, generating student curiosity and lowering the affective filter to language learning. Surprising as it may seem, little has been published about the visual arts and second language acquisition (SLA). This article surveys this limited research, briefly describes how brain research and language learning theories interact with art, ans presents the authors' observations of ...

How To Prepare A Piano, Annea Lockwood Jan 2005

How To Prepare A Piano, Annea Lockwood

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

My original Piano Transplants (1969-72) were about relishing the shock of displacement: pianos planted in an English garden, sinking in a Texas cattle pond, pianos beached and aflame; observing their slow transformation through natural processing the five year decay. My relationship with the piano did not end with the Piano Transplants, though. I will also discus more recent works stemming from my fascination with the rich array of sounds which can be drawn from every part of the instrument once the keyboard is dethroned.


Invisible Symmetries: A Retrospective Of The Work Of Lindsay Vickery, Jonathan Mustard Jan 2005

Invisible Symmetries: A Retrospective Of The Work Of Lindsay Vickery, Jonathan Mustard

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

The following is a retrospective of the work of Western Australian born composer Lindsay Vickery. The paper examines the composer's diverse output in composed and improvised instrumental and electronic music and multimedia works. A nine digit string of numbers that the composer calls a "cypher", ties together a significant portion of Vickery's output for almost two decades of compositional activity, but the sense in which these works are about something else is palpable in each and every one. Iconic pieces where a serial-like method is an anathema and cypher based pieces all seem to point to a structure ...

Sound Art / Mobile Art, Cat Hope Jan 2005

Sound Art / Mobile Art, Cat Hope

Sound Scripts: Proceedings of the inaugural Totally huge New Musical Festival Conference 2005

This paper examines the role of sound installation and music composition practices in addressing the relationship between sound and telecommunications devices, in this case the mobile phone. The popularity of mobile phone artworks is rapidly increasing, with handsets readily available, artists excited about sponsorship opportunities, and the general push in electronic arts. This paper focuses primarily on work by Perth mobile phone Sound Art collective, Metaphonica, which explore many issues raised by this art form. "Phonebox" (2005) was a site specific sound installation where phones are called from a remote computer, presenting a synchronized composition featuring sounds created by the ...
