Seamless Knitted Sports Bra Design: A Responsive System Design Exploration, Adriana Carmen Gorea 2017 Iowa State University

Seamless Knitted Sports Bra Design: A Responsive System Design Exploration, Adriana Carmen Gorea

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

ABSTRACT

The transition of sports bras’ uses, from an active lifestyle to resting activities, requires dynamic and adaptable comfort properties of the design, as well as adequate breast support, fit, and comfort. Thus, the two-fold purpose of this study was to: (a) analyze the use of current materials and processes in the product development process of seamless sports bras, via industry interview and observation, and (b) propose a design solution for a seamless sports bra that offers variable breast support during running versus resting activities.

Using a case study approach, an in-depth interview with a Santoni seamless knitting technician provided ...

Fear And Nostalgia In Immigration, Daniel A. Matthews 2016 CUNY Hunter College

Fear And Nostalgia In Immigration, Daniel A. Matthews

School of Arts & Sciences Theses

Fear and Nostalgia in Immigration is a project that uses re-occuring memory and experiential memory to help us understand our common histories. The projects asks individuals to first share a re-occuring memory by writing it on a chalkboard. The next step is to then write an experiential memory about immigration, this can be a story you might have heard or it could be something from your own family history. These two tasks are done on a communal table where several individuals are engage in the same task at the same time. This aim of this exercise is to have something ...

Matrix Of Delights

SIGNED: The Magazine of The Hong Kong Design Institute

Using skills from the 21st century scholars are putting digital techniques to work in an effort to preserve the endangered artefacts of China's Dunhuang region, where the Mogao caverns represent one of the world's most important repositories of ancient art. As Daisy Zhong reports, part of their solution has been to digitally recreate the caves in Hong Kong.

Preservation First? Re-Viewing Film Digitization, Lauren Tilton 2016 University of Richmond

Preservation First? Re-Viewing Film Digitization, Lauren Tilton

Rhetoric and Communication Studies Faculty Publications

This article addresses the politics of film digitization by arguing that we should reconsider archival and preservation "best practices" that require film restoration. Instead, it advocates for digitizing films "as is," which, in turn, captures the film's current materiality (i.e., fading, scratches, and other facets that reveal age, wear, and use). Using the work of Luis Vale, one of the youth filmmakers from New York City's Lower East Side's Young Filmmaker Foundation's Film Club, as a case study, the article points to the importance of archiving and saving these youth films as part of a ...

The Intercontinental Reflections Of An Eighteenth-Century Mexican Rebozo, Eleanor A. Laughlin 2016 University of Florida

The Intercontinental Reflections Of An Eighteenth-Century Mexican Rebozo, Eleanor A. Laughlin

Textile Society of America Symposium Proceedings

The eighteenth-century Mexican rebozo (scarf) is an excellent example of a garment type that crossed not only ocean currents, but also boundaries of race and class. Initially, the rebozo was associated with indigenous culture in Mexico. Evidence suggests that the rebozo existed during the pre-Columbian period,1 but it has been most commonly remembered as an article of clothing used by the Spaniards to cover the exposed bodies of indigenous women in the church setting. Aspects of the scarf’s decorative elements, such as fringe and dying methods, are thought to have been inspired by Asian styles that arrived in ...


Case Study As A Means To Document And Promote Creative Pattern Cutting Processes, Ellen McKinney 2016 Iowa State University

Case Study As A Means To Document And Promote Creative Pattern Cutting Processes, Ellen Mckinney

Ellen C. McKinney

Practical experiences of traditional and emerging processes in creative pattern cutting can be successfully documented and promoted through case study. Case study is a comprehensive research strategy for investigating an empirical topic by following a set of pre-specified procedures (Yin, 1994). The case study method is different from research methods such as experiments and surveys where statistical generalization is used to extend the results to a larger population. In the case study method, analytic generalization is used to generalize from the case study to theoretical propositions. This paper explores reasons and solutions for undocumented pattern cutting knowledge. Pattern cutters mentally ...

How Do Designers Generate New Ideas? Design Heuristics Across Two Disciplines, Seda Yilmaz, Shanna R. Daly, Colleen M. Seifert, Richard Gonzalez 2016 Iowa State University

How Do Designers Generate New Ideas? Design Heuristics Across Two Disciplines, Seda Yilmaz, Shanna R. Daly, Colleen M. Seifert, Richard Gonzalez

Seda McKilligan

Research supports the central role cognitive strategies can play in successful concept generation by individual designers. Design heuristics have been shown to facilitate the creation of new design concepts in the early, conceptual stage of the design process, as well as throughout the development of ideas. However, we know relatively little about their use in differing disciplines. This study examined evidence of design heuristic use in a protocol study with 12 mechanical engineers and 12 industrial designers who worked individually to develop multiple concepts. The open-ended design problem was for a novel product, and the designers’ sketches and comments were ...


Thrills, Spills, And Unacknowledgments, Caitlin Aasen 2016 Washington University in St. Louis

Thrills, Spills, And Unacknowledgments, Caitlin Aasen

Graduate School of Art Theses

Through the use of stains, resulting from a process of water and pigments, I showcase the metaphorical importance of stains within our lives. Nature, the everyday, and our bodies have always been an inspiration to my process. Instances such as looking through car windows at the colors rushing past, becoming one, as I travel 60 miles per hour. These moments of moving colors that blur the line between object and pigment are where I find inspiration formally and conceptually. These instances of blurs happen constantly in our lives. Not just because we are moving so fast, but because we can ...

Mr. Jonathan P. Berger: Gentle Conflations, Jonathan Patrick Berger, Mr. Jonathan P. Berger

Graduate School of Art Theses

Sentimentality is a critical aspect of human existence because it is human-natural, agendered, and provides ground for gentle conflation of the domestic sphere and the roles within it. As an artist, I am able to utilize sentimentality to open possibilities and welcome, instead of molest, viewers into contemplation with the assumed norms of domesticity.

With its origins founded in the Age of Enlightenment, sentimentality was a praiseworthy endeavor, one based on intelligence and contemplation. I define sentimentality as the emotional intellect’s way of encoding or decoding the soft emotions surrounding and within objects, people, times or ideas. Soft emotions ...
