A Model House And A House's Model: Reexamining Frank Lloyd Wright's House On The Mesa Project, Robert Wojitowicz Dec 2005

A Model House And A House's Model: Reexamining Frank Lloyd Wright's House On The Mesa Project, Robert Wojitowicz

Art Faculty Publications

Examines Frank Lloyd Wright's House on the Mesa project, which, despite its familiarity to most historians of 20th-century architecture, has never been thoroughly studied within the general context of Wright's expansive oeuvre and the specific circumstances of the Museum of Modern Art's 1932 'Modern Architecture: International Exhibition.' Numerous drawings for the project survive in the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives at Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona, although only photographic evidence survives of the original model. Scattered references to the project appear in Wright's writings, most notably his correspondence with wealthy Denver businessman George Cranmer, whose family served ...

The Achaemenid Empire In South Asia And Recent Excavations In Akra In Northwest Pakistan, Peter Magee, Cameron Petrie, Robert Knox, Farid Khan, Ken Thomas Oct 2005

The Achaemenid Empire In South Asia And Recent Excavations In Akra In Northwest Pakistan, Peter Magee, Cameron Petrie, Robert Knox, Farid Khan, Ken Thomas

Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology Faculty Research and Scholarship

The impact of the Achaemenid annexation of northwestern Pakistan has remained a focus for archaeological research for more than a century. A lack of well-stratified settlements and a focus on artifacts that are not necessarily appropriate for assessing the effects of imperial control have until now obfuscated our understanding of this issue. In this article, we present the results of three seasons of excavations at Akra located in the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan. Although research was cut short in 2001 by global events, our preliminary results indicate that the relation;;hip between urbanism, trade, and the Achaemenid annexation ...

Man In A Suitcase: Tulse Luper At Compton Verney, Anthony Purdy, Bridget Elliott Jul 2005

Man In A Suitcase: Tulse Luper At Compton Verney, Anthony Purdy, Bridget Elliott

Anthony Purdy

Exploring in the gallery space the possibilities of an experimental intermediality, Luper at Compton Verney deploys the suitcase both as an emblem for key moments of twentieth-century history, including Auschwitz , and as a recurrent device in twentieth-century art. This essay examines the intersections of art and history in an exhibition space conceived as a complex heterotopian play of "other spaces," such as suitcase installations, vitrine displays, film projections, video screenings, drawings, and maps.

'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 ...


Visualizing Complexity : A Spatial Analysis Of Decorative Geometric Pattern In The Islamic World, 900-1400 Ad, Tracy Elizabeth Harrison Jun 2005

Visualizing Complexity : A Spatial Analysis Of Decorative Geometric Pattern In The Islamic World, 900-1400 Ad, Tracy Elizabeth Harrison

Dissertations and Theses

This study explores how the use of complex decorative geometric patterns in Islamic architecture spatially relates to advances in the fields of science and philosophy in the Islamic world between the ninth and fourteenth centuries. This project examines hypotheses developed by vario~s scholars on the forces that shaped the use of these patterns (known as the geometric mode) in Islamic architecture. The prevailing assumption that advances in mathematics contributed to the use of the geometric mode is used as a starting point for subsequent analysis.

For this study, two spatial databases were created. One contains over two hundred and ...

Iroquois And Dutch: An Exploration Of The Cultural Dynamics And Rise Of The Iroquois Resulting From The Fur Trade, Nancy M. Clark May 2005

Iroquois And Dutch: An Exploration Of The Cultural Dynamics And Rise Of The Iroquois Resulting From The Fur Trade, Nancy M. Clark

MALS Final Projects, 1995-2019

Along the coastal region of eastern North America, the fur trade created a number of changes within Native American cultures. In part, the fur trade exasperated deteriorating conditions between neighboring tribes by contributing to an escalation of internecine warfare which was on the rise throughout the centuries prior to contact. Competition for access to trade goods led to a destructive cycle of rivalry between the Iroquois, Hurons, and Mahicans that culminated in the destruction of the Huron, the displacement of Mahican tribes from the Fort Orange area by the Mohawk, and the creation of a rivalry within the Iroquoian League ...


This Could Have Been Mine: Scottish Gaelic Learners In North America, Michael Newton May 2005

This Could Have Been Mine: Scottish Gaelic Learners In North America, Michael Newton

e-Keltoi: Journal of Interdisciplinary Celtic Studies

The Scottish Gaelic learners' movement is a recent development in North America that parallels the mainstream Scottish heritage movement in some ways, but is strongly oppositional to it in others. This essay describes characteristics of this phenomenon by analyzing the range of people involved, their motivations for learning, their goals, the creation of community among learners, the interaction between language learning and discourses of ethnicity, and the interface between Gaelic learners in North America and native Gaelic communities in Scotland and Cape Breton Island.

Art Is Dead?: A Criticial Analysis Of Arthur Danto's End Of Art Theory, Laura M. Ginn Apr 2005

Art Is Dead?: A Criticial Analysis Of Arthur Danto's End Of Art Theory, Laura M. Ginn

Honors Theses

The idea of art as a reductive process is not new within the art world. In 1953, Robert Rauschenberg created the piece "Erased DeKooning" for which he erased a painting by DeKooning and displayed the end product (a blank canvas). The author found herself considering the way in which art has changed over the course of the twentieth century. The 20th century could be viewed as a time in which the main purpose of art was to destroy all artistic conventions and redefine art. Some would say art has come out unfocused and without a purpose. The author explores the ...
