Counterculture, Craftsmanship, And Cyberspace Connectivity: Considerations Of Contemporary Feminist Zines In/As/Of Feminist Art Education, Courtney Lee Weida 2011 Adelphi University

Counterculture, Craftsmanship, And Cyberspace Connectivity: Considerations Of Contemporary Feminist Zines In/As/Of Feminist Art Education, Courtney Lee Weida

Courtney Lee Weida

This chapter examines the cyberspace presences and digital interplays of contemporary feminist zines in the contexts of art and art education. Although the peak of zine creations as works on paper may be traced to the 1990s, this form of feminist counterculture has evolved into cyberspace forums and expressions. Zines often include not only email addresses alongside “snail mail” addresses, but also links to pdfs and related web resources. Connecting the handmade craftsmanship and hand-drawn and written techniques of zines with the grassroots connectivity enabled by the web, blogs and other online forums relating to zines or containing zines constitute ...


Platten En Perkament, Peter D. Verheyen, Marlene Hoogeveen (Translator) 2011 Syracuse University

Platten En Perkament, Peter D. Verheyen, Marlene Hoogeveen (Translator)

Peter D Verheyen

Translation into Dutch for Handboekbinden (Journal of the Stichting Handboekbinden) by Marlene Hoogeveen of: Peter D. Verheyen. "Vellum on Boards" The Guild of Book Workers Journal 39 (2004).

Vellum is arguably one of the most beautiful binding materials in use, and at the same time one of the least used in modern design bindings. While it is often used in limp bindings, its use “over hard boards” has been much more limited. A study of the bookbinding literature reveals it being covered in-depth to a larger degree in German language trade manuals than in English. This could explain their seemingly ...


Sources Of Architectural Design Ideation A Reflection On The Ideation Process Of Eight Iranian Professional Architects, Hamid Nadimi, Farhad Shariat Rad 2011 Selected Works

Sources Of Architectural Design Ideation A Reflection On The Ideation Process Of Eight Iranian Professional Architects, Hamid Nadimi, Farhad Shariat Rad

Farhad Shariat Rad

Preliminary design ideas, mostly not manifest, are generated in the designers’ minds at the very early stages of their encounter with the design problems. This paper reports a study of the sources from which these ideas are originated, and the corresponding role each source plays in the process of designing. The study was undertaken through the analysis of semi-structured interviews with eight Iranian professional architects about the ideation process of at least one of their design projects. To complement the data gathered through interviews, each interview was followed by a discussion session within a group of graduate architecture students, reflecting ...

Nancy As A Center Of Art Nouveau Architecture, 1895-1914, Peter Clericuzio 2011 University of Pennsylvania

Nancy As A Center Of Art Nouveau Architecture, 1895-1914, Peter Clericuzio

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

The small city of Nancy, France, is arguably the center where Art Nouveau architecture had the most lasting impact. Nancy’s Art Nouveau was a divergent form of modernity that was defined by regionalism and a distinct sense of place, which its proponents championed as the key elements of an authentic architecture, allowing Nancy to challenge Paris as the dominant French artistic center in the two decades before World War I.

Most of Nancy’s architects were graduates of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and grounded in the language of classicism and its associated professional standards. Much of Nancy ...

Neo-Raconteur: Allocating Southern-Gothic Symbolism Into Design Media., Mark Daniel Compton 2011 East Tennessee State University

Neo-Raconteur: Allocating Southern-Gothic Symbolism Into Design Media., Mark Daniel Compton

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

I created the term Neo-Raconteur to convey my interest in medium theory to support the artistic custom of revealing cultural conventions for allocation into artistic genres. The term evolved from the French word "Raconteur," meaning: somebody who tells stories or anecdotes in an interesting or entertaining way. In the past a Raconteur's anecdotes were verbally volleyed, ever voluble, yet quip. Neo-Raconteurs may decide not to speak at all choosing their anecdotal expression to manifest itself through singular or multiple means, manners, or methods of design and technology as well as or involving more traditional techniques of extraction to convey ...


Systems At Play: The Construction Of International Systems In Social Impact Games, Jorge Albor 2011 The University of San Francisco

Systems At Play: The Construction Of International Systems In Social Impact Games, Jorge Albor

Master's Theses

This thesis explores how game makers conceive of and navigate the intersection between digital systems and real world systems by asking, how can social impact game designers shape procedural rhetoric to effectively address complex real world systems with digital systems? By examining three game case studies, I reach four significant findings regarding player agency, subversive play, design approaches to scale, and game difficulty in regards to systems fluency.

Ask, Tell, Vickie R. Phipps 2011 University of Tennessee

Ask, Tell, Vickie R. Phipps

Catalyst: A Social Justice Forum

When I was designing these marks a year ago, I wanted to acknowledge GLBTQI military persons serving under the unjust policy of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. To accomplish this, one of the counterforms in each of the military branch logos is flipped upside down creating the GLBTQI symbol of an inverted triangle.

On September 20th, 2011, the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy was repealed.

Before the repeal, the simple act of wearing a t-shirt with one of these logos on it would have been an act of defiance and resistance. Today that same mark serves as ...


Instant Racism, Vickie R. Phipps 2011 University of Tennessee

Instant Racism, Vickie R. Phipps

Catalyst: A Social Justice Forum

Ubiquitous messages are, by definition, everywhere and therefore familiar to us. Due to the nature of attention, the familiar often gets past critical filters because it feels so comfortable. After all, there is nothing different or alarming about the familiar. I am interested in the powerful ability of graphic design to reframe the ubiquitous because once we see something differently, we never see it the same again.

I was inspired to create this work after reading Clinging to Mammy: The Faithful Slave in Twentieth-Century America in which author Micki McElya critically examines the image of Aunt Jemima in the American ...
