What The Walls Say: Finding Meaning And Value In Tel Aviv’S Street Art, Rachel R. Bird Jan 2018

What The Walls Say: Finding Meaning And Value In Tel Aviv’S Street Art, Rachel R. Bird

Honors Theses

This thesis explores street art in Tel Aviv, Israel through anthropological concepts of value. By defining street art as an interstitial practice—one that exists between permeable, socially defined boundaries and is characterized differently by different power structures—I attempt to define some of the different regimes of value that apply to street art. Using the emerging market of “street art tours” as a fieldwork site, I look at how street art is presented and re-presented to both tourists and locals. By situating my research in a historical and geographic context, I hope to understand the ways different value schema ...


Rediscovering Authenticity, Emily Warden May 2017

Rediscovering Authenticity, Emily Warden

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

Emily Warden's jewelry and jewelry objects significantly investigate portraiture, the concept of overlooked longevity, and authenticity. They embody the idea of memorialization, the question of value, and the uniqueness of personal ritual that is at the core of every human being, while disputing the loss of these concepts due to a consumerist and convenience obsessed society.

Adaptability In A State Of Flux, Yasmeen Suleiman Jan 2016

Adaptability In A State Of Flux, Yasmeen Suleiman

Theses and Dissertations

“[that] which does not change does not endure” – Henri Bergson

Numbers only quantify the development Qatar is experiencing. In Doha, the city is a physical manifestation of these changes. The general approach to development follows a ‘tear down, build new’ model. Potential value is lost in what is discarded, despite necessity and convenience. This study addresses the topic by dispelling the assumed need to destroy in order to build. In doing so, it examines existing vernacular spaces that are often overlooked. The main application is analyzed through agents of space, such as buildings and the urban environment with varied outcomes ...


A Lovely Room Of Death, Tessia Laryn Rockey Jan 2015

A Lovely Room Of Death, Tessia Laryn Rockey

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

What I hope to accomplish with this thesis is an exploration into the process of making home during relocation, and the characteristics it takes on as a statement of value, where the individual and culture meet. As a person currently going through this transitional phase, I will be using myself as the research subject, documenting changes that my space and I undergo as home is made, the process that leads to stable, familiar shelter. To study this process, I will be using visual autoethnography. I will take a deep look at the everyday habits that makes private dwelling what it ...


Labor, Vera Bauluz Apr 2014

Labor, Vera Bauluz

CGU MFA Theses

I make sacred objects from scratch, from ready mades, from industrial materials, and sometimes from trash or recycling. I treat those objects with love and reverence to embed them with essence and soul. I propose conversations with objects exquisitely executed, that question our social order and the machine, easily understood by everybody, although still challenging our understanding of contemporary art.

The placement of the work and the lighting, as fundamental part of the installation, attempts to generate strokes of conscience that enhance human understanding and capabilities beyond a specific discourse.

Humor and sacred coexist in my installation and in my ...


What’S Materialism? Testing The Two Dominant Perspectives On Materialism, Srikant Manchiraju, Zlatan Krizan Jan 2013

What’S Materialism? Testing The Two Dominant Perspectives On Materialism, Srikant Manchiraju, Zlatan Krizan

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Materialism is defined as “the importance a consumer attaches to worldly possessions” (Belk, 1984, p. 291). However, scholars (e.g., Larsen, Sirgy, & Wright, 1999; Shrum et al., 2012) have noted that the existing conceptualizations of materialism, and by extension measurement scales, have several drawbacks such as negative priori association and poor scale reliability (Larsen et al., 1999).


Why Do Women Seek Physical Beauty? : A Cross-Cultural Approach To Understand The Physical Beauty Of East Asian Women, Sun-Woo Kim, Yuri Lee Jan 2013

Why Do Women Seek Physical Beauty? : A Cross-Cultural Approach To Understand The Physical Beauty Of East Asian Women, Sun-Woo Kim, Yuri Lee

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Physical beauty has been a main research agenda of the social psychology of clothing. However, the body of research that has illustrated the main reasons that women seek physical beauty has been limited. This study examined what values are sought by women through their physical beauty. The physical beauty value, a new paradigm suggested by this research, is the value acquired through the improvement of physical beauty. As the cognition of beauty is affected by sociocultural contexts (Dion et al., 1990), the physical beauty value is also formulated based on cultural characteristics. This study selected Korean, Chinese and Japanese women ...


Predicting Behavioral Intentions Toward Sustainable Fashion Consumption: A Comparison Of Attitude-Behavior And Value-Behavior Consistency Models, Srikant Manchiraju Jan 2013

Predicting Behavioral Intentions Toward Sustainable Fashion Consumption: A Comparison Of Attitude-Behavior And Value-Behavior Consistency Models, Srikant Manchiraju

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Sustainable consumption is defined as use of goods and services that caters to one’s basic needs and to enhance quality of life while minimizing resources used, such that future generations’ needs are not jeopardized (Dolan, 2002). Sustainable consumption has received great attentions in the fashion industry; given the substantial impact apparel production has on environmental pollution (Claudio, 2007). For example, Claudio (2007) cited the Environmental Protection Agency Office of Solid Waste report, which suggested that on average an American discards 68 pounds of textile and clothing every year. The present study is an effort to understand consumers’ behavioral intention ...


Blue Book, Daniel Cole Jan 2013

Blue Book, Daniel Cole

Theses and Dissertations

Alain De Botton writes in The Architecture of Happiness, that “any object of design will give off an impression of the psychological and moral attitudes it supports.” Interpreting design then is done by understanding the attitudes of the designer, which either will or will not resonate with the viewer. I may consider the formal and conceptual merits of an object of design, but ultimately my attitudes determine whether the object will have resonance with me. These “attitudes” are, anthropologically speaking, values: what a person finds most good, proper, or desirable in life. Values are the key to the creation of ...


Singularized Value And The Creation Of A New Heirloom: A Case Study, Sarah Portway Jan 2013

Singularized Value And The Creation Of A New Heirloom: A Case Study, Sarah Portway

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

The world economic system is premised on the notion of fluctuations in value and capitalist societies have accepted the stock market as the appropriate indication of this phenomenon. Our acceptance of this daily variance in financial worth can be extended to fluctuations in the value of objects as well. To complicate matters, an object can be said to have exchange (monetary) value and singular (sentimental) value which are not always related.


Best Of, Nimer I. Aleck Ii Apr 2011

Best Of, Nimer I. Aleck Ii

Art and Design Theses

The majority of modern popular trophies seem to act as memorials to small victories. Foiled plastic figures sitting atop extruded tubes of holographic tape are given for everything from internationally recognized achievement to participation in regional events. These architectural sculptures are icons of success. This thesis explores the themes, processes, and contexts that inform the ways that we perceive value. Using the iconography of the popular modern trophy, this thesis and the artwork associated with it examines the constructs of value within visual culture. My goal is to display and understand the way we appreciate and define that which implies ...


Consumers' Post-Adoption Of M-Services: Interest In Future M-Services Based On Consumer Evaluations Of Current M-Services, Joohyung Park, Whitney Snell, Sejin Ha, Te-Lin Chung Jan 2011

Consumers' Post-Adoption Of M-Services: Interest In Future M-Services Based On Consumer Evaluations Of Current M-Services, Joohyung Park, Whitney Snell, Sejin Ha, Te-Lin Chung

Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management Publications

While consumers’ adoption of new technology has received substantial interest from researchers, the mechanism of consumers’ post-adoption evaluation derived from continued use of m-services and its impact on their interest in upcoming m-services are yet to be explored. Drawing on the appraisal → emotional response → coping framework, this study investigates 1) how utilitarian and hedonic values derived from consumers’ basic and innovative benefits of m-services influence their post-adoption satisfaction with current m-services and 2) the impact of post-adoption satisfaction on interest in future m-services in the context of young consumers’ mobile phone use. The results support all the hypothesized relationships except ...
