Endless Yarns: Interdisciplinary Creative Work In Text And Textile, Louisa Owen Sonstroem 2011 University of Connecticut - Storrs

Endless Yarns: Interdisciplinary Creative Work In Text And Textile, Louisa Owen Sonstroem

Honors Scholar Theses

In this thesis I explore the relationship between text and textile. What is it that connects them? I engage this question from an aesthetic perspective, through process as much as through theory. The thesis project consists of three components: creative text pieces, creative textile pieces, and an essay that attempts to deal with the questions which arose during my creative process.

Point Of Intersection: Arts Participation, Art Appreciation, And Community Cultural Development, Della Marie Cheek

Graduate Theses

This thesis is culled from my engaged perspective as writer, recipient, and coordinator of South Carolina Arts Commission's (SCAC) Statewide Arts Participation Initiative (SAPI) grant, which was funded through the Wallace Foundation, and from my simultaneous engaged perspective of developing and teaching Clinton Junior College's (CJC) first offering of academic course ART101: Art Appreciation.


Crafting A Career Using Cps And Foursight, Morgan E. Milovich 2011 Buffalo State College

Crafting A Career Using Cps And Foursight, Morgan E. Milovich

Creative Studies Graduate Student Master's Projects

ABSTRACT OF PROJECT

Crafting a Career Using CPS and FourSight

The purpose of my project is to develop a case study of how I will use Creative Problem Solving (CPS) and an attention to my Foursight preferences to grow my existing craft business into a viable career, rather than having it as just a hobby.

By utilizing the CPS Thinking Skills Model and having a greater awareness of my Foursight preferences, I was able to move from a dream to a reality and come out the other end of this project with a fully functioning, profitable business rooted firmly in ...


Abundance, Overload, And Excess, Kristina Falotico 2011 Clemson University

Abundance, Overload, And Excess, Kristina Falotico

All Theses

As a middle class American, I have become aware of my culture's inclination and capability to accumulate goods. Through relocations, my life in recent years has been a transient one; relying mostly on possessions to constitute a home. At the same time these
possessions begin to become a burden, weighing me down as they constantly get packed and unpacked. It is through these experiences that I've become more aware of what we surround ourselves with and which represent our lives. My prints explore the notion of
everyday household goods and how much we have amassed as a culture ...


Discovery Through The Art Of Making, Andrew Daly 2011 Clemson University

Discovery Through The Art Of Making, Andrew Daly

All Theses

Between growing up on a farm, and working in a saddle shop, I have been conditioned to understand my environment in an empirical and experiential manner. There is a certain kind of education that can only be achieved through working with your hands, and the knowledge obtained in that fashion cannot be sufficiently translated through the written word, or with the use of technology. It is important to me to keep this type of education alive.
I have disciplined myself to learning the traditional printmaking techniques of engraving and lithography for their laborious hands on qualities so that I can ...


Tools For Nourishment, Ernst Meyer 2011 Clemson University

Tools For Nourishment, Ernst Meyer

All Theses

Although modern life is often fragmented and hurried with little time for reflection, the shared use and contemplation of handmade objects can strengthen human connections. By creating functional ceramics for everyday use, I make tools that help heighten users' awareness of their food, their families and their communities. My work considers the interaction between person and object through the senses of sight and touch. Cups, pouring vessels and small bowls have rounded forms that fit easily in the hand, while large bowls have grooves and folds inspired by the natural landscape; plate and bowl sets are designed to be assembled ...


The In-Between, Derrick Logan 2011 Clemson University

The In-Between, Derrick Logan

All Theses

This body of work explores my perception of the landscape. I traverse spaces that exist in the in-between. My work functions on a personal level in that I am seeking a reconnection with my surroundings through a physically intense interaction with the land. It is an attempt to reengage the land, to form knowledge, awareness, and a sense of belonging.
Through performance I explore transcendent potential within the landscape. These performances of slow walks through the landscape are documented through video. Viewing of the documentation grants points of projection for the viewer. The videos both engage and undermine how people ...


Magic Meat, Adam Stewart 2011 Clemson University

Magic Meat, Adam Stewart

All Theses

Have you ever been really secure in what it means to be? If not, it's ok. If so,
don't be delusional. Either way, I have created a series of devices that present the
challenges of self-division and fluctuation, and reveals this complicated human
characteristic not as a product of being broken, fractured, and dysfunctional, but as an
advantageous ability to adopt complex multiple perspectives, sometimes simultaneously.
These devices can be thought of as 'gym equipment' to exercise the more
immaterial, invisible portions of ourselves. Strengthening the connections between
physicality and the mental/emotional aspects of our bodies demonstrates ...


Sensory Spaces, Thomas Schram 2011 Clemson University

Sensory Spaces, Thomas Schram

All Theses

We are all products of our environments and simultaneously have the ability to shape and change those environments. Physical environments obviously influence how we perceive and understand ourselves in relation to our surroundings, but non-physical environments have an ever-increasing effect as well. Changing technologies and increased use of online networks pose new questions about how we understand and relate to the settings we inhabit. Inspired by the work of Sherry Turkle, my work examines the tension in the transition many people experience as they incorporate more internet-ready, globally connected technology into their daily lives. I examine the intersection between virtual ...

The Dangers Of Digital Imaging, Russel Laska 2011 Governors State University

The Dangers Of Digital Imaging, Russel Laska

All Student Theses

In today's world, photography takes on a whole different meaning that it did 20-30 years ago. Whereas terms such as photograph and graphic used to have separate meanings that classified them from one another, these and many similar terms have been melded together to represent the same thing... a computer image. Due to the jump in technology over the past 10 years alone, digital cameras went from flashy novelties to a strong industry standard in photography, and swift computer alteration of photographs and images began with a very small amount of people to practically everyone who has a computer ...

How Locative Media Art Set The Agenda For Mobile Location Aware Apps (And Why This Still Matters)., Conor McGarrigle 2011 Technological University Dublin

How Locative Media Art Set The Agenda For Mobile Location Aware Apps (And Why This Still Matters)., Conor Mcgarrigle

Conference Papers

This paper explores the connection between Locative Media (LM) a set of art practices centred on location aware technologies and current Location Based Services (LBS) and applications. To achieve this LM will be traced to the origins of the term and to the originary ambitions driving this unique mode of engagement with emergent location-aware technologies. This involves returning to the first principles of the Karosta Locative Media workshop, its associated texts and to Ben Russell's "Headmap Manifesto" [1] to locate the intentions and ambitions embedded in the term itself.

From its inception at the locative media workshop in Karosta ...

Homage To Everyday People, Sang Ja Chun 2011 Virginia Commonwealth University

Homage To Everyday People, Sang Ja Chun

Theses and Dissertations

Influenced by an ever-growing sense of alienation with my homeland, I have been determined to discover through my art practice an ability to challenge conventional notions of home, identity, communication and miscommunication. Exploring these themes, I became increasingly aware of the parallels between everyday life and art practice. By creatively connecting with a diverse amount of local people and their communities, I fulfilled desires to discover a sense of belonging and generated opportunities for others to break through traditional social boundaries and roles.


Alghe Mist, Jeffrey Kenney 2011 Virginia Commonwealth University

Alghe Mist, Jeffrey Kenney

Theses and Dissertations

This is an overview of the source material, methodologies, artistic influences, and conceptual decisions that inform the sculptural and the photographic means of production that characterize my art practice. Research topics include model-making, the indexical relationship of the photograph and object, and a brief phenomenology of accidents, alchemy, and ambivalence in relation to specific artworks.
