Skin, Bones + Bags: Investigating The Death Of Marine Ecosystems, 2019 Washington University in St. Louis
Skin, Bones + Bags: Investigating The Death Of Marine Ecosystems, Rylie Walter
Bachelor of Fine Arts Senior Papers
Plastic has become ubiquitous in the oceans. Although a convenient and cheap way to distribute goods around the world, plastic is also a leading cause for the death of many marine ecosystems. Walter explores her personal connection to the ocean, researches the relationship between plastic pollution and the ocean, and examines art as a means for inciting social change to protect and restore ocean environments. By using plastic as her main material for making art, Walter transforms the material from one that harms into one that can be calming and peaceful, while still representing the destruction it causes.
Keith Haring: Silence = Death, 2019 Chapman University
Keith Haring: Silence = Death, Nellie Jalalian
Student Scholar Symposium Abstracts and Posters
The American aids crisis is one of the most important epidemics of the contemporary world, yet many americans do not know the severity of the crisis or the true lasting effects on recent society. In my project I will go over personal accounts of individuals directly affected by the illness, like famed artist Keith Haring, to give it a more human perspective. I will also reflect on the art that was created at the time, and how that was reflective on the people affected. Aids is an immunodeficiency virus that has been proven difficult to diagnose in the early on ...
Cinematic Meditations, 2019 University of Colorado, Boulder
Cinematic Meditations, Dakota Nanton
Art Practices MFA Theses
The cinematic experience is a sort of ritualistic ceremony between the audience and the projected image. Audiences come into the cinematic space with a set intention (often simply the desire to be entertained) but the filmic experience can also inadvertently and deliberately access and engage other states of being including the liminal, the unconscious, and the sublime. Through both research and my filmmaking practice I am exploring ways in which cinema can be used as a tool to create meditative and introspective experiences for the audience. In this written paper I discuss my own intentions as a filmmaker, previous works ...

The Artist Residency And Lumen Printing, 2019 Stephen F Austin State University
The Artist Residency And Lumen Printing, Austin Cullen
Undergraduate Research Conference
The artist residency is a critical and informative experience that is privileged to few, and revered by many. Creating work in a completely foreign environment can yield beautiful and new work that the artists could have never conceived of making. Artwork could be made about anything, but choosing a specific subject matter, or theme, can be very challenging. This difficulty arises from lack of knowledge, experience, or most importantly, being bored with one's surroundings. Artist residencies, often being in other countries and always providing a new atmosphere, can be a great way to jumpstart new artwork. Residencies are incredibly ...
A Walk Through Shadows, 2019 University of Nebraska-Lincoln
A Walk Through Shadows, Nicholas Sheldon
Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design
“A Walk Through Shadows” is an investigation of dream states and their emotional and psychological effects, which I have been exploring for this past year with large-scale black and white copper plate aquatint prints. Each work is a response to the surreal and bizarre nature of dreaming and the themes and topics that seep from my own subconscious. Each work allows for the examination of the fantastical and the absurd with imagery that can suggest universal concepts from life and death, to love and war.
These prints break from the traditionally printed square plate centrally placed on the paper, to ...
John Cage’S ‘Rock’ Music: Ecocritical And Performance Considerations In Ryoanji For Solo Oboe And Percussion Obbligato (1983), 2019 The University of Southern Mississippi
John Cage’S ‘Rock’ Music: Ecocritical And Performance Considerations In Ryoanji For Solo Oboe And Percussion Obbligato (1983), Everette Smith
In the years following World War II, several American composers began breaking from the confines of music notation relegated to five lines and four spaces. Of particular interest to this study, John Cage (1912–1992) began liberating his compositions from the restraint posed by traditional notation in 1951 with his work Imaginary Landscape No. 4. He continued to create and develop varying systems of graphic notation with his indeterminate works, which became increasingly influenced by his interest in the environment and in South and East Asian aesthetic and philosophical considerations, themselves environmentally influenced. One of the latest products of Cage ...
Here's What I Know, 2019 University of Connecticut
Here's What I Know, Kelsey Miller
Now, at the end of three years of graduate school, is a time for reflection—and a time to piece together a narrative of how I got to now. In our first semester here, we were given an assignment in a drawing class to gather pictures, text, and objects that informed or inspired our studio practice, a Collectanea. At the end of that semester, we documented and compiled our collection into a photo book—an atlas of our thoughts and observations. That book became the bones of the work I have made over these last three years. New thoughts ...
Artist Statement, 2019 Georgia College & State University
Artist Statement, Hope Mobley
For this project, the class was assigned to pick an object for themselves, and then we were provided with a word and phrase. The object I chose was a tarot card because I knew that would give me a diverse range of directions I could follow. The random word generated for me was ‘Time” and the phrase “Between a rock and a hard place.”

This written thesis has been created alongside the thesis exhibition shown in the Laura Mesaros Gallery at West Virginia University (displayed March 18th to March 22nd). The work presented consisted of drawings, bookmaking, and various forms of printmaking and collage. This body of work is meant to create an analysis of insecurities and body positivity we associate with our physical selves. This work is a collective experience that has been a collaboration with over 80 participants. The number of participants help to create a larger overall collective voice. By creating this collective voice, we can experience these feelings together and ...
More Than Cornfields, 2019 University of Iowa
More Than Cornfields, Kate Edwards
Honors Theses at the University of Iowa
When I started this project, I knew I wanted to use images of nature as my subject matter. Shortly after I made this decision, I realized that when people talk about all of the beautiful natural places one can go visit, rarely will you hear anywhere in Iowa on that list. We are often seen as little more than a flyover state: nothing to see here. As part of my work, I wanted to show the variety of interesting and unique landscapes that can be found in my home state, by using photographic silkscreen printing as well as foil printing ...
Graphic Content Warning; Personal And Political Traumas, 2019 Virginia Commonwealth University
Graphic Content Warning; Personal And Political Traumas, Emily K. Wardell
Theses and Dissertations
The written portion of this thesis work is meant to address and further investigate the visual work created using mediums of print and found video. This artistic research has been interested in examining varying associations with truth, recollection, and evidence. This includes the recollection of public histories and news-media narratives as well as my own history and trauma. Through this work my aim was to create a deconstruction and revolt against how associations are formed, and how to understand imagery as information. This thesis first discusses my relationship to appropriated imagery, then connects and examines it through the addition of ...
Mata Sueños/ Dream Killer, 2018 University of Colorado, Boulder
Mata Sueños/ Dream Killer, Lucero Aguirre
Art Practices MFA Theses
The thesis installation, Mata Sueños / Dream Killer, recalls the atmosphere of a birthday party. It also presents a surrogate for the anxiety and fear that permeates the experience of undocumented and mixed-status families living in the United States. As a person born into these circumstances, I reorient this celebration to bring attention to the looming possibility of removal. My installation suggests what remains hidden within domestic spaces. Upon close observation, the handmade paper decorations that adorn the room reveal that they are obsessively bitten. These decorations form an engulfing mass, one that is both familiar and surreal. Together with ...
North American Indigenous Collection And Curation And Its Impact On Market Arts., 2018 University of Louisville
North American Indigenous Collection And Curation And Its Impact On Market Arts., Adelaide Mccomb
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
This thesis examines the history of two North American Indigenous groups, those belonging to the Great Plains and the Arctic, and observes how settler-colonial influence determined the collection and curation of arts and artifacts in these areas. This art includes a mention of pre-Colombian works, but focuses predominantly on works being made after “first-contact” through the contemporary ear. The paper addresses the effect imperialist history has had on the development of Indigenous art markets, and how institutions such as museums may address them through ethical practices, and efforts to decolonize museum spaces.

Taking (Birth) Control: Empowerment Through Contraceptive Education, 2018 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College
Taking (Birth) Control: Empowerment Through Contraceptive Education, Meghan Saas
LSU Master's Theses
TAKING (birth) CONTROL is a body of work that educates women on their options for contraceptives, and empowers them to claim their right to choose if—and when—to have a child. Utilizing graphic design and letterpress printing processes, I created a visual system consisting of carefully honed typographic, color, and graphic styles. The bulk of the materials make up an educational toolkit for use at Delta Clinic of Baton Rouge, one of only three remaining abortion providers in Louisiana. Delta Clinic was in need of comprehensive and affordable materials for their patients on the subject of contraception. The toolkit ...
