Day Jaw Boo, A Re-Collection, Rachel VanWagoner 2011 Brigham Young University - Provo

Day Jaw Boo, A Re-Collection, Rachel Vanwagoner

Theses and Dissertations

For my MFA thesis exhibition, I have collected ideas surrounding events that happened in the past and combined them with the ceramic work I have made in the three years of my master's program at Brigham Young University. I have grouped visual elements from Buck Rogers and other Futro (retro-future) pop-culture with ideas surrounding the Voyager Interstellar Mission and the compiling of the Golden Record. Combining these elements in an installation, will create an environment where people can reflect on things they have "already seen" and envision a brighter future. For that reason I playfully call the show Day ...

Drawing A Line In The Sand: When A Curator Becomes A Creator, Megan M. Carpenter

Law Faculty Scholarship

Over the last twenty years, audience attendance at museums, galleries, and performing arts institutions in the United States has decreased dramatically. Major museums and galleries are considering ways to add engaging and meaningful value to the user experience with technology, from incorporating user-generated content to creating multimedia installations billed as “collaborative” works.

In 2010, the Dallas Museum of Art’s Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea exhibition featured landscapes from 1850 to the present, as well as a sound installation composed by students and faculty in the Arts and Technology program at the University of Texas at Dallas, which played ...


Direito Pensado, Sentido E Vivido Em L. A. Warat, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Direito Pensado, Sentido E Vivido Em L. A. Warat, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Em 16 de Dezembro de 2010 faleceu o jurista argentino que o Brasil sobretudo adoptou, Luis Alberto Warat. Era um iconoclasta, um heterodoxo. Este artigo é uma primeira evocação do seu pensamento, inseparável da sua própria vivência do Direito. Se crescermos na nossa cultura jurisfilosófica, um dia será considerado analfabeto em Direito quem não conhecer bem Warat. Se estagnarmos ou regredirmos, será um desconhecido, e nem sequer ilustre.


Selecting In - Selecting Out, Melanie S. Moore Bermudez 2011 Claremont Graduate University

Selecting In - Selecting Out, Melanie S. Moore Bermudez

CGU MFA Theses

The scientific process was developed as a means to understanding the world around us. It is a systematic approach to reaching the unknown, and consists of fixed and unknown variables. At the beginning of an inquiry the known variables are identified and utilized within the experiment. But working with what is known and predictable can only go so far. It is with the introduction of the unpredictable that gaps are bridged and a new lens to see is created. It is this methodology that is at the foundation of my art practice.

Delicacies, Michelle Carla Handel 2011 Claremont Graduate University

Delicacies, Michelle Carla Handel

CGU MFA Theses

My work initiates a conversation about corporeal strangeness by creating ambiguity or mystery where simultaneous qualities of sensuality, vulnerability, and disgust exist. I create contradictions, subverting pleasing or friendly forms with uncomfortable qualities to elicit a sort of visceral consternation. Cues pointing in different directions can remain simply experiential or they can refer to the complexity of the body and raise questions about human attitudes towards it. Abstraction is used as a visual shorthand or entry point to the body in an effort to describe commonality among humans rather than emphasizing their differences. In this way, there is more freedom ...

O Céu No Bolso, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Há quem preveja ainda o fim do livro. Contudo, cada vez mais livros se publicam todos os anos. Há quem deplore a falta de leitura, mas mais e mais pessoas são alfabetizadas, e lêem. Qualquer coisa não bate certo. Percentagens? Tipo de livros? Seja como for, um novo protagonista entra em cena: o e book. Mal amado também pelos mais conservadores. E contudo...

Identidade E Atraso, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Identidade E Atraso, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

O Professor Fernando Pereira Marques deu a lume um novo livro: Sobre as Causas do Atraso Nacional (Lisboa, Coisas de Ler, Dezembro de 2010). Não poderia haver reflexão mais oportuna. É uma vasta e documentadíssima reflexão, uma preocupação por Portugal não assente em impressões e preconceitos, mas em dados e em testemunhos eloquentes e credíveis. Podem abalar certezas, e sem dúvida desfazem mitos.


Crise & Democracia, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2011 Universidade do Porto

Crise & Democracia, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Vivemos num mundo em grande medida imaginado. Nunca foi tão real a criação artificial de realidades, que se tornam realidades mesmo. O mundo das Finanças é um desses reinos. O problema é que elas afectam - e de que maneira - a vida real das pessoas. E a comunicação social é o eco dessa magia, de que dependemos cada vez mais, por todo o Mundo. Este artigo tem como base o publicado no semanário "Grande Porto", mas acrescenta-lhe um pequeno texto de Paulo Bonavides sobre a ligação entre democracia e Estado social. É que sem um e outra, é impossível suportar a ...

Anne M. Giangiulio

Excerpt from the graphic novel I designed, 'Which Side Are You On? The Story of a Song' by George Ella Lyon, in collaboration with Brooklyn illustrator Christopher Cardinale, published by Cinco Puntos Press.

Stand Still A Moment, Mehla Goodrich 2011 Bard College

Stand Still A Moment, Mehla Goodrich

Senior Projects Fall 2011

I began senior project with the intention of creating an entirely sculptural body of work. This ambition changed with my summer internship at the Solomon R. Guggenheim museum in New York. It was here within the exquisite architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright’s museum that I decided to focus on two-dimensional work. This change came about because I was inspired by the Lee Ufan retrospective: Marking Infinity, on view at the time. I was specifically intrigued by Mr. Lee’s use of emptiness. The vast empty spaces within his paintings and prints provided the viewer with a moment of meditation ...

Hold Me Tight // I Never Got The Message, Brieze Levy 2011 Bard College

Hold Me Tight // I Never Got The Message, Brieze Levy

Senior Projects Fall 2011

ARTIST STATEMENT: BRIEZE LEVY

I believe in a balance— a force that drives and thrives from resistance, ritual, imagination, and collective minds. I believe our nuances work through us like waves rippling in and out, between our bodies and our environments. My art shows an interest in the difference between ritual and routine, the power of symbols, the transmission of information and the sacred vs. profane. As an artist I am interested in how our human condition drives people into pattern, and how these patterns are added to the accumulation of time. Experience, the basic coupling of human, environment, and ...


Lead Discovery And Optimization Strategies Towards The Development Of 4(1h)-Quinolones And 1,2,3,4-Tetrahydroacridone Analogs With Antimalarial Activity, Richard Matthew Cross 2011 University of South Florida

Lead Discovery And Optimization Strategies Towards The Development Of 4(1h)-Quinolones And 1,2,3,4-Tetrahydroacridone Analogs With Antimalarial Activity, Richard Matthew Cross

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The goal of our research endeavor was to successfully employ modern lead discovery and optimization strategies towards the development and identification of compounds possessing antimalarial activity. Preliminary data from in vitro screening at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research identified several chemotypes including 4(1H)-quinolones and 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroacridones to have potent antimalarial activities. Multiple synthetic routes were devised and implemented which enabled the rapid preparation and isolation of over 400 structurally diverse 4(1H)-quinolones and 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroacridones.

Our research towards discovering and optimizing antimalarials was inspired from the severe impact malaria has had ...
