Visual Teaching Of Geometry And The Origins Of 20th Century Abstract Art, Stephen Luecking 2019 DePaul University

Visual Teaching Of Geometry And The Origins Of 20th Century Abstract Art, Stephen Luecking

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

As a group, the artists educated near the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries possessed greater mathematical knowledge than expected of artists today, especially regarding constructive skills in Euclidean geometry. Educational theory of the time stressed such skills for students in general, who needed these to enter the workplace of the time. Mathematics teaching then stressed the use of manipulatives, i.e., visual and interactive aids thought to better fix the student’s acquisition of mathematical skills. This visual training, especially in geometry, significantly affected the early development of abstraction in art. This paper presents examples of ...


Philosophical Archeology In Theoretical And Artistic Practice, Ido Govrin 2019 The University of Western Ontario

Philosophical Archeology In Theoretical And Artistic Practice, Ido Govrin

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The aim of this thesis is to examine philosophical archeology and the feasibility of knowledge that derives from researching it simultaneously through theoretical and artistic practice.

Philosophical archeology essentially embodies one’s relation to history and historiographic research—a research methodology at the core of which lies a “historical a priori”, that which a priori conditions the historical development of a phenomenon. However, this research conceives of philosophical archeology more broadly, as a multifaceted term that traverses the discourse of the humanities at large.

By pursuing this doctoral research, my original contribution to knowledge is twofold: (1) I historicize philosophical ...

Fore And Aft: Abstraction In Tolkien’S “Ishness” Designs, John R. Holmes 2019 Franciscan University of Steubenville

Fore And Aft: Abstraction In Tolkien’S “Ishness” Designs, John R. Holmes

Journal of Tolkien Research

Though Tolkien's artwork tended toward the figural, there was a period during his undergraduate years in which he created abstracts under the name of "Ishnesses." This essay examines the nature of abstraction, how it relates to medieval concepts of art, and how it relates to Tolkien's "visionary" painting of subjects not in the primary world but in the Middle-earth of his vast imagination.

Symbolic Seeds: An Analysis Of Pomegranate Usage In Selected Artworks Of The Past And Present, Hannah Spry 2019 University of Minnesota Morris

Symbolic Seeds: An Analysis Of Pomegranate Usage In Selected Artworks Of The Past And Present, Hannah Spry

Scholarly Horizons: University of Minnesota, Morris Undergraduate Journal

The image of the pomegranate has been used in works by many artists of different periods such as Sandro Botticelli’s Madonna of the Pomegranate (1485), Rachel Ruysch’s Fruit and Flowers (1716), Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s Proserpine (1874), and Salvador Dalí’s Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee (1944). Although the pomegranate is often interpreted as a symbol of fertility, there have been many other interpretations and usages of the pomegranate throughout art history such as mythological, religious, sexual, or simply as a natural object in a still-life study. The pomegranate has been referenced by scholars while ...


Microcosms: An Examination Of Insects In 17th-Century Dutch Still Lifes, Olivia Carlson 2019 University of Minnesota - Morris

Microcosms: An Examination Of Insects In 17th-Century Dutch Still Lifes, Olivia Carlson

Scholarly Horizons: University of Minnesota, Morris Undergraduate Journal

There are many 17th-century Dutch flower still life paintings, and if you pass by one quickly during a visit at a museum, you may see nothing more than a bouquet of arranged flowers. But if you stop at one and look long enough, you will find visual treats that would have been missed when only glancing at the piece. Maybe you’d see the careful composition, or perhaps a shell or a figurine. Most often, however, you will discover insects; some are hidden in the bouquet, and some are very prominently displayed on top of the flowers or on a ...

Slashing Signs: Mary Richardson's Attack On "The Rokeby Venus" As Semioclasm, Robyn Epstein 2019 James Madison University

Slashing Signs: Mary Richardson's Attack On "The Rokeby Venus" As Semioclasm, Robyn Epstein

MAD-RUSH Undergraduate Research Conference

When art is the victim of violence the object itself isn’t the only thing under attack. I see acts of violence against art as a two-step process: an attack on the physical art object and an attack on the icon, symbol, or sign it represents. This paper examines the 1914 slashing of the Diego Velàzquez painting The Rokeby Venus (1647-51) by British suffragette Mary Richardson. Using this attack as a case study, I argue that the event is semioclastic, as opposed to iconoclastic or vandalistic, meaning that it is an attack on the painting as a sign and is ...


Dissent And Disruption: How Artists Redefine Museum Spaces And Audience Engagement, Paige E. Sellars 2019 Randolph-Macon College

Dissent And Disruption: How Artists Redefine Museum Spaces And Audience Engagement, Paige E. Sellars

MAD-RUSH Undergraduate Research Conference

This paper delves into the concept of artistic creation from engagement with museum collections and the intimate connection between museum curation the post-modern and contemporary artist. I discuss the work of Nedko Solakov at the Frans Hals Museum, Jenny Holzer and Donald Judd at the Museum of Applied Art in Vienna, and Fred Wilson at the Baltimore Historical Society. These artists intentionally reengaged with art and museum objects via deliberate installations and clever interventions to broaden the narrative and in some instances, contest the hierarchical dissemination of knowledge provided by the curator and the museum. Museums of the past espoused ...


The Collapse Of Empire At Gordion In The Transition From The Achaemenid To The Hellenistic World, Elspeth R. M. Dusinberre 2019 University of Colorado Boulder

The Collapse Of Empire At Gordion In The Transition From The Achaemenid To The Hellenistic World, Elspeth R. M. Dusinberre

Classics Faculty Contributions

Gordion, ancient capital of Phrygia, was a large and thriving city of secondary importance during the period of the Achaemenid Persian Empire (ca 550–333 BC). Recent work makes possible a reconsideration of the site: evaluating its architecture, finds and use of landscape within and after the socio-economic and administrative context of the Achaemenid imperial system enables the following new overview. During the Achaemenid period, Gordion’s populace participated in the broad cultural exchanges enabled by the imperial system and may have emphasised animal husbandry. When Alexander’s conquest led to the collapse of the Achaemenid administrative infrastructure, the impact ...

Intellectual Property Rights: Film, Pedagogy, And United States Code Title 17, Amy Lazet

VRA Bulletin

This article provides an overview of the United States Code Title 17, Sections 107, 108, and 110 as it relates to copyright and films in learning environments. By providing a summary of only the points that are relevant to pedagogy and the viewing of films, the author seeks to help readers understand what is acceptable according to Title 17 without readers having to wade through the Code themselves. The paper also includes relevant information on the 10% rule and interpretations of Title 17 by such institutions as the American Library Association, and concludes with a brief list of best practices ...


More Than A Spasm, Less Than A Sign: Queer Masculinity In American Visual Culture, 1915-1955, Thomas D. Baynes 2019 The University of Western Ontario

More Than A Spasm, Less Than A Sign: Queer Masculinity In American Visual Culture, 1915-1955, Thomas D. Baynes

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This research considers the contribution of visual culture to queer masculinity among white American men during a profound reorientation both in popular understandings and the practical conditions of eroticism between men. From about 1915 to 1955 a pragmatic libidinal economy centered on the theatrical effeminacy of “fairies” was displaced by one founded on the presumption of strongly delineated and relatively fixed hetero- and homo-sexual identities. Although medical discourses about queerness had been developing since the middle of the Nineteenth Century in Europe, what Americans of the opening decades of the twentieth century knew about queerness they learned unsystematically from hearsay ...

James Joyce Run: Why Are We On The Move Again If It's A Fair Question?, Barry Sheehan

Academic Articles

I write a blog www.jj21k.com which looks at the works of James Joyce, the environment which he wrote about and changes that have taken place since he wrote about them. The blog posts are predominantly about Dublin.

During a time of injury, instead of running I was able to cycle. This blogpost describes the journey James Joyce made through houses in Dublin that he lived in whilst growing up. This is paralleled with a cycle I made and narrative I wrote.
