Jack - Height Adjustable Office Desk Mechanism, John Walsh Dec 2010

Jack - Height Adjustable Office Desk Mechanism, John Walsh

Other

This mechanism was developed out of the increasing requirement for individual users to be able to adjust the height of their desk to an ergonomically correct position for their physicality. Sitting at a standard height desk (usually 720-740mm) for long durations has been linked to health problems, including back and posture problems and DVT, for those who fall either side of the average user in terms of anthropometric height range. A typical problem with "systems furniture" which is widely installed in most corporate open-plan offices is that components are "shared" for cost, functionality and aesthetic purposes. Typically, this means that ...

Owen Johns And The Conventionalization Of Ornament, John Kresten Jespersen Oct 2010

Owen Johns And The Conventionalization Of Ornament, John Kresten Jespersen

Faculty Publications

Owen Jones (1809-1874) was a Victorian architect, antiquarian and ornamentor of house-hold fame. He was Superintendant of the Works for the Royal Society of Arts sponsored Crystal Palace of 1851. He published his monumental chromolithographed The Grammar of Ornament in 1856, an encyclopediac compendium of nineteen styles of world ornament and a final twentieth chapter on nature. One of the great virtues of the Grammar is the theory of conventionalization of both ornament and color in the 37 propositions of the Preface. Taking this theory as a starting point, the book looks at Jones' original ornament collected in the Victoria ...

Where Book Art And Technology Mingle, Peter D. Verheyen, Richard Minsky Oct 2010

Where Book Art And Technology Mingle, Peter D. Verheyen, Richard Minsky

Libraries' and Librarians' Publications

Interview of Peter D. Verheyen by Richard Minsky. Peter Verheyen, conservator, bookbinder, and creator of the Books Arts Web, discusses the current state of book arts. Although he creates impeccable fine bindings that have won international awards, Peter Verheyen's huge contribution to the field of book art has little to do with making or conserving physical books. His magum opus is the Book Arts Web (philobiblon.com), the main location on the Internet for book art information and resources, from online exhibitions to tutorials, opportunities, blogs, and reference materials.


Did You Make That? : Wood Carving, Apprenticeships, And Collective Art In Senegal, Christina Schueler Oct 2010

Did You Make That? : Wood Carving, Apprenticeships, And Collective Art In Senegal, Christina Schueler

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

Defining the term “artist” in one’s own culture is challenging and can be even more difficult in a foreign culture. In Senegal, the practice of wood sculpture can be both artistic and practical. Because of this, Senegalese artists who work with wood sculpture end up asserting their identity as artists through their collective actions. In this study, I follow the life and craft of a Senegalese wood sculptor, Serigne Mor Gueye, by making my own sculptures and listening to his anecdotes about life as an artist in hopes of discovering how the Senegalese define such ambiguous terms, “art” and ...

Design For Dementia, Gregor Timlin Oct 2010

Design For Dementia, Gregor Timlin

Books/Book chapters

This book describes a two-year collaborative research project between the Helen Hamlyn Centre at the Royal College of Art and Bupa. It explores how better product and environment design can improve quality of life for care home residents with dementia. The design ideas developed are a practical response to the challenge of congnitive decline and can be retrofitted to existing care homes as well as applied to new developments.


Heresy And Error, Eric Marshall White Phd, Rebecca Howdeshell Sep 2010

Heresy And Error, Eric Marshall White Phd, Rebecca Howdeshell

Bridwell Library Publications

From its inception the early Christian Church sought to suppress books believed to contain heretical or erroneous teachings. With the development of the printing press during the latter half of the fifteenth century, Christian authorities in Europe became increasingly aware of the need to control the mass production of unfamiliar and potentially unacceptable texts. Initially, censorship of the press was enforced locally. However, with the spread of the Protestant Reformation, the Catholic Church required a more centralized and organized approach. Thus, the Council of Trent (1545–1563) ratified the Index librorum prohibitorum(“Index of Prohibited Books”), which listed individual banned ...


Virtual Teaching, John O'Connor Sep 2010

Virtual Teaching, John O'Connor

Academic Articles

The potential of online virtual environments, such as Second Life for delivering remote learning continues to be debated by academics. It would appear to offer particular opportunities to support remote learning in art & design, where there is a particular requirement for live visual interaction. The School of Art, Design & Printing at the Technological University Dublin (DIT) received funding to develop a module for undergraduate students to test this theory. A five-credit module (under the European Credit Transfer System) received formal approval from the Institute in 2008 and was delivered as a pilot to academic staff interested in exploring virtual environments ...

Design Heuristics In Ideation Across Engineering And Industrial Design Domains, Seda Mckilligan, Shanna Daly, Colleen M. Seifert, Richard Gonzalez Sep 2010

Design Heuristics In Ideation Across Engineering And Industrial Design Domains, Seda Mckilligan, Shanna Daly, Colleen M. Seifert, Richard Gonzalez

Industrial Design Conference Presentations, Posters and Proceedings

How do designers explore a design space to generate diverse solutions? This work focuses on the identification of design heuristics used in the ideation process in the domains of industrial design and engineering design. Design heuristics are cognitive strategies applied to a design problem to help designers create novel solutions. In a think-aloud protocol, engineers and industrial designers with varying levels of experience were asked to develop multiple concepts for a novel design problem. The results show evidence of frequent heuristic use, and that heuristics are effective in generating diverse, creative, and practical concepts, which, as a result, may stimulate ...

Tension And Critical Thinking In Art, Marnie A. Jain Aug 2010

Tension And Critical Thinking In Art, Marnie A. Jain

Critical and Creative Thinking Capstones Collection

This paper is a discussion about the existence, purpose, and use of tension in works of art. It does not take the form of standard papers, but is written as an interview where I am both the interviewer and interviewee. As the interviewee I am an artist and researcher of this topic. As the interviewer, I challenge myself to support my assertions with examples, and I try and catch myself in contradictions, and ask for clarifications. Similar to conversations we have in the classrooms of the Critical and Creative Thinking Graduate Program, the discussion in this paper does not cease ...

Mock-Ups In Design : The Implications Of Utlizing [Sic] A Mock-Up Review Process In Professional Practice, Charles M. Boggs Jul 2010

Mock-Ups In Design : The Implications Of Utlizing [Sic] A Mock-Up Review Process In Professional Practice, Charles M. Boggs

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this research is to examine the use of a mock-up review process in interior design projects to better understand the implications of using such a process within the standard professional practice model. The research consisted of interviewing design professionals who utilize mock-ups as part of their standard of practice. These interviews were centered around two groups - those working in shipbuilding, where mock-ups have a long history, and those working in land-based projects, where mock-up use is rare. Analysis of the interviews indicated a positive relationship between mock-up use and collaboration, innovation, and problem solving. The interviews also ...


Non-Traditional Lightweight Polypropylene Composites Reinforced With Milkweed Floss, Narendra Reddy, Yiqi Yang Jul 2010

Non-Traditional Lightweight Polypropylene Composites Reinforced With Milkweed Floss, Narendra Reddy, Yiqi Yang

Faculty Publications - Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design

Lightweight composites are preferred for automotive applications due to the weight restrictions and also due to the presence of inherent voids that can enhance the sound absorption of these composites. The density of the reinforcing materials plays a crucial role in such lightweight composites. Milkweed is a unique natural cellulose fiber that has a completely hollow center and low density (0.9 g cm−3) unlike any other natural cellulose fiber. The low density of milkweed fibers will allow the incorporation of higher amounts of fiber per unit weight of a composite, which is expected to lead to lightweight composites ...
