Carbon Credits, Elizabeth Stops 2010 Southern Cross University

Carbon Credits, Elizabeth Stops

Theses

This exegesis is a summation of Carbon Credits, a project in which I developed works that responded to and interpreted my local colonised landscape, while establishing environmentally conservative studio procedures. This undertaking was motivated by the conviction that it would be possible to develop a professionally viable practice that incorporated a strong procedural ethic of sustainability. Carbon Credits was integral to my environmentally committed lifestyle and was also contextualised within a society increasingly aware of its dependence on the health of ecological systems with which we interact.

I engaged with a performative research model that incorporated practice-led methods such as ...


Painting Process As Journey : Movement And Stasis : Meditation And Materiality, Christelle Naudé 2010 Southern Cross University

Painting Process As Journey : Movement And Stasis : Meditation And Materiality, Christelle Naudé

Theses

This exegesis documents and supports a studio-based research project that produced a body of work, resulting in an exhibition entitled ‘Meditation and Materiality’. This project aimed to integrate an exploration of the physicality and materiality of painting with the universal interconnectedness experienced in deep meditation practices.

Central to this research was the concept of journey, specifically the parallels between the metaphor of the poetic image on canvas and my inner journey: my worldly travels and the performance of paint as material. Further parallels emerged such as the ritual of preparation in the studio mirrored that for meditation space, and immateriality ...


Race & Rock & Roll: A Visual Analysis Of Rolling Stone Cover Photography, Erica D. Block 2010 Colby College

Race & Rock & Roll: A Visual Analysis Of Rolling Stone Cover Photography, Erica D. Block

Honors Theses

If African Americans heavily influenced the development of rock & roll as a musical genre, why do we picture rock stars as white men with guitars? In this project I examine, with a particular focus on race, how the the visual culture surrounding rock music evolved to where it is today. To do this, I performed a close visual analysis of Rolling Stone Magazine covers from 1967-1980. In this presentation I illustrate Rolling Stone's trend of featuring 'white negroes' on their covers, which allowed the magazine to use the selling power of a white person's face while retaining the ...


The Unfixedness Of It, Kerry O'grady 2010 University of Massachusetts Amherst

The Unfixedness Of It, Kerry O'Grady

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

My drawings contemplate the unfixed nature of my experience. I draw from a state of uncertainty about the relationship between self and space, between a moment of experience and the one that follows it. My process involves intuitive mark-making in which instances of perception are indeterminate and discontinuous. I draw from the experience of unhinged moments, from silence and stillness, and from the indefinable, inarticulable, interstitial moments of perception between those that can be concretely described.

The immediacy of drawing, the direct engagement with the mark on the surface, is central to my work. Intuitive mark-making is a way of ...


Different Ways To Record Light, Ryan P. Feeney 2010 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Different Ways To Record Light, Ryan P. Feeney

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

Different Ways to Record Light is a series of photographs, videos and objects that explore the affect that popular culture has on how I perceive, and make sense of the world around me. By using light as a thematic and metaphoric subject this work opens up a discourse about the role that images and technology play in our perceptual lives. This thesis paper will give a theoretical, contextual and historical framework for the concepts explored in my studio practice.

Inside Out: Representations Of Women And Work On Popular Television, Liz Linden, Jen Kennedy

Liz Linden

Inside Out: Pregnant Actresses Playing Nonpregnant Characters, a video montage by artist Liz Linden, was originally exhibited in combination with the video Outside In : Fictional Commercials for Real Products at Art in General in New York in Hay 2009. Both videos use appropriated television clips to point to the formal and ideological mechanisms ~that structure our relationship to materials and content that we are confronted with on an almost daily basis, but which are often overlooked or dismissed as benign or banal. Displayed side-by-side on TV monitors, a reference to the videos' source material, together Inside Out and Outside In ...

Hoop, Kate Walker

Kate Walker

In HooP members of the LGBT community in Nelson, New Zealand gather for a mass hula hoop event, in this work about body physicality and visual spectacle. Swaying hips, circular rhythms and shuffling feet resound. Moments of pathos, seriousness and vulnerability are punctured by the innate humour of the mass hula event. This art work confounds the stereotypes of queer communities. The usual reasons queer community might gather are to organise for political or social action, or to socialize without a sense of being 'other'. Something else is happening here. 

The history of video art as a document of community ...
