Advantages Of Finalizing Undergraduate Creative Projects With A Research Poster, 2018 Florida Atlantic University
Advantages Of Finalizing Undergraduate Creative Projects With A Research Poster, Christopher Maraffi
Florida Statewide Symposium: Best Practices in Undergraduate Research
Before coming to FAU, I developed the undergraduate media arts curriculum at USCB, where I assigned research posters to art students as part of their final project presentations. In this talk, I will describe my approach to integrating practice-based research practices into multimedia courses, and how framing creative work as research can benefit student learning. This STEAM (Art+STEM) approach to multimedia pedagogy tries to balance intuitive exploration of creative expression with critical enquiry into the artistic process. Students begin to understand that artists have always been technical and learn to better articulate what motivated their creative work.
Sticky Media. Encounters With Oil Through Imaginary Media Archaeology, 2018 University of Potsdam
Sticky Media. Encounters With Oil Through Imaginary Media Archaeology, Naomie Gramlich
This paper investigates how media archaeology and the concept of deep time could be taken literally, by bringing authors of early media studies (McLuhan, Innis) together with contemporary eco-material approaches (Gabrys, Parikka) on the topic of oil. Following these conjunctions of media and oil the article first traces certain prevailing narrations in media studies, before turning to the understanding of oil beyond its industrial uses and its catastrophic dimensions in the petro-imaginary of Satin Island by Tom McCarthy. In terms of imaginary media archeology, petro-imaginary provides a conceptual space in which a new relation of images of material reality to ...
Integrating Art And Narrative To Enhance Quality Of Life In Palliative Care, 2018 Western Michigan University
Integrating Art And Narrative To Enhance Quality Of Life In Palliative Care, Jennifer Fortuna
The Open Journal of Occupational Therapy
Lacie Lee Wallace, a mixed-media artist from Wheeling, West Virginia, is featured on the cover of the Fall 2018 issue of The Open Journal of Occupational Therapy (OJOT). The photograph depicts Lacie holding a self-portrait painted by artist CeCey Rose. Lacie’s physical appearance in the photograph is strikingly different from the physical appearance of the woman featured in the painting. The portrait was created 4 years before Lacie was diagnosed with advanced stage colon cancer. In the year following the diagnosis, Lacie lost nearly 100 lbs. as a result of an aggressive treatment regimen. When the palliative care team ...

Sonorités D’Une Méditation Émotionnelle. Une Esthétique De La Pluie., 2018 Université de Lyon, France
Sonorités D’Une Méditation Émotionnelle. Une Esthétique De La Pluie., Alexandre Melay
Dans un monde extrêmement rationnel, où les sociétés contemporaines imposent leurs lois à la nature et à l’homme, il est un phénomène que nul ne pourra jamais contrôler : la pluie. Loin de l’effet anxiogène des phénomènes naturels et des messages alarmants sur les catastrophes climatiques à avenir, l’élément naturel qu’est la pluie est une métaphore de la vie, des sentiments et du mental. La pluie a des pouvoirs, apporte de l’énergie et de la mélancolie, elle est propice à la réflexion en invitant à la lenteur et à l’introspection. Écouter la pluie, c’est ...
Strange Fruit: Black Female Body Politics In Contemporary American Culture, 2018 University of Maine - Main
Strange Fruit: Black Female Body Politics In Contemporary American Culture, Eleanor Kipping
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
The African American Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 60s was an organized effort by and for Black American populations to receive equal treatment by law. Its legacy has much reason to be celebrated: not only for its accomplishments and successes in unifying the Black community but also in bringing issues of segregation, violence, and racial discrimination to the forefront of the public’s attention. The decade was a pivotal point in contemporary race relations, and served as an apex in attempts to bridge America’s past and what America is striving to become. Today however, the social and ...
Creative ‘Class’: Leading Innovation With Digital Pedagogy In Cultural And Creative Industry (Cci) Programs, Dana Morningstar
The Organizational Improvement Plan at Western University
Leaders of cultural and creative programs (CCIs) in Ontario community colleges are key to realizing potential in higher education related to digital pedagogy, creativity, industry partnerships, entrepreneurship and innovation. In this Organizational Improvement Plan (OIP), the role of an academic leadership group is considered from Ontario-centric creative industry and innovation policies and college processes. The problem of practice is the gap of harmonized leadership strategy between higher education classroom practices and regional and provincial overarching educational strategy to increase innovation through digital pedagogy. Colleges have collective capacities in innovating with digital pedagogy in creative industry programs and providing graduates with ...
Illusions Of "Blackness" In Contemporary Visual Culture, 2018 Lesley University College of Art and Design
Illusions Of "Blackness" In Contemporary Visual Culture, Michaël Dorn
MFA in Visual Arts Theses
My thesis begins with a primer of the historical concept of “black(ness)” and the roots of its racialization. Intertwined throughout my discussion in Section I, I will highlight a few of my research findings and discuss some of the installation images that I created as I studied the work of contemporary artists who use lexical and literal figurative “blackness” in their work—in particular, the oeuvre of Kerry James Marshall as featured in his retrospective exhibition Mastry. My discourse unfolds with a brief etymological review of both the English word “black” and its precedent conceptual forms in Section II ...
Un/Dead Animal Art: Ethical Encounters Through Rogue Taxidermy Sculpture, 2018 The University of Western Ontario
Un/Dead Animal Art: Ethical Encounters Through Rogue Taxidermy Sculpture, Miranda Niittynen
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
Beginning in 2004, the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists began an art movement of taxidermied animal sculptures that challenged conventional forms of taxidermied objects massively produced and displayed on an international scale. In contrast to taxidermied ‘specimens’ found in museums, taxidermied ‘exotic’ wildlife decapitated and mounted on hunters' walls, or synthetic taxidermied heads bought in department stores, rogue taxidermy artists create unconventional sculptures that are arguably antithetical to the ideologies shaped by previous generations: realism, colonialism, masculinity. As a pop-surrealist art movement chiefly practiced among women artists, rogue taxidermy artists follow an ethical mandate to never kill animals for the ...
Acts Of Contrition: An Exploration Of Catholic Guilt And Sensory Pleasure In Kinetic Sculpture, 2018 University of Maine
Acts Of Contrition: An Exploration Of Catholic Guilt And Sensory Pleasure In Kinetic Sculpture, Wade Warman
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
This thesis outlines the formulation of a research-based practice in kinetic sculpture. The primary goal is to investigate how historical and contemporary kinetic sculpture might provide a means for exploring the notion of guilt as seen through the paradigm of the Catholic Church by way of sensory pleasure using Joseph Campbell’s Monomyth as a framework. The methodological model upon which this research is based is a hybrid model that combines elements of experimental engineering methodologies (i.e. experimentation, data collection, data analysis, etc.) as well as historical research. The primary outcome is Acts of Contrition, a series of five ...
Rediscovering The Interpersonal: Models Of Networked Communication In New Media Performance, 2018 University of Maine
Rediscovering The Interpersonal: Models Of Networked Communication In New Media Performance, Alicia Champlin
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
This paper examines the themes of human perception and participation within the contemporary paradigm and relates the hallmarks of the major paradigm shift which occurred in the mid-20th century from a structural view of the world to a systems view. In this context, the author’s creative practice is described, outlining a methodology for working with the communication networks and interpersonal feedback loops that help to define our relationships to each other and to media since that paradigm shift. This research is framed within a larger field of inquiry into the impact of contemporary New Media Art as we experience ...

The first game in the series is a strategy game called Lost & Found (high school and ...
Darkness On The Edge Of Town, 2018 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College
Darkness On The Edge Of Town, Sarah Louise Ferguson
LSU Master's Theses
Darkness on the Edge of Town focuses on a series of dioramas I created accompanied by audio and video. This thesis exhibition is based on a series of interviews I conducted with a friend who is a recovering opioid addict who has spent the majority of his life incarcerated for drug offenses. The American opioid epidemic currently looms large mostly because of the influx of drug abuse in middle class white communities. My subject is of Puerto Rican descent and represents the much harsher treatment of minority addicts by the criminal justice system. His personal story represents a deep yearning ...
Migiwa Orimo Interview, 2018 DePaul University
Migiwa Orimo Interview, Jessica Ruiz
Asian American Art Oral History Project
Migiwa Orimo is an artist whose primary work takes the form of installation. Orimo was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. After receiving her degree in literature and studying graphic design, she immigrated to the US in the early eighties.
In her process of creating installations, she begins by entering a space of language. Often her installations consist of disparate elements--text, painting, drawing, objects, video and sound. In attempting to establish relationships and tension between those elements, similar to constructing sentences, she explores the notions of gap, slippage, and “a realm of disjunction.”
She exhibits her work nationally ...
To Un-Become: Between Historic Reminder And Hallucination, Geographical Document And Childhood Memory, Collective Tragedy And Personal Healing, 2018 University of the Arts Helsinki, Finland
To Un-Become: Between Historic Reminder And Hallucination, Geographical Document And Childhood Memory, Collective Tragedy And Personal Healing, Saša Rajšić
disClosure: A Journal of Social Theory
To Un-Become: Between Historic Reminder and Hallucination, Geographical Document and Childhood Memory, Collective Tragedy and Personal Healing is an multimedia art project, which explores the concept of un-becoming through revisiting Operation Storm in Yugoslavia and its consequences over two decades later. My interest in the concept of un-becoming was sparked by a court case in which General Ante Gotovina, a former Croatian military officer, was found guilty of organizing and implementing a permanent and forcible removal of the Serbian people in a 1995 military action entitled Operation Storm. Not long after, Gotovina’s convictions for crimes against humanity were reversed ...
Enacting The Glastonbury Pilgrimage Through Communitas And Aural/Visual Culture, 2018 Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley and the Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University
Enacting The Glastonbury Pilgrimage Through Communitas And Aural/Visual Culture, Kathryn R. Barush
International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage
The sacred sites of Glastonbury in Somerset, England have long been places of pilgrimage, connected to the legend of the journey of Joseph of Arimathea to the British Isles, and have fired the imagination from the Middle Ages to today - inspiring the Arthurian legends, folk-stories and song, and visual representations. In response to the question ‘What is Pilgrimage,’ this essay seeks to explore the conjunction of artistic representations and geographic journeys to and among the ancient topography and mysterious structures of Glastonbury, with a particular focus on how sacred travel, and especially an experience of communitas, can be engendered through ...
