Glorious Constructions: The Struggle To Preserve Salvation-Themed Visionary Art Environments, Molly Elaine Sheehan Nov 2010

Glorious Constructions: The Struggle To Preserve Salvation-Themed Visionary Art Environments, Molly Elaine Sheehan

Master's Theses and Project Reports

Salvation-themed art environments are a roadside rarity, built out of a strong visionary dedication to God, but the sites are disappearing simply because the work is misunderstood. The historiography on the subject is sparse, trending more toward coffee table books with big glossy pictures than real scholarly endeavors, but the consensus among all has been clear. The sites are a valuable part of the recent American cultural landscape, crossing several scholarly fields - art, architecture, and history - and uniting them into a cohesive preservation movement. On a series of trips to visit, see, and experience five of these sites, I began ...


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 ...

Community Radio:History,Growth,Challenges And Current Status Of It With Special Reference To India, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr Oct 2010

Community Radio:History,Growth,Challenges And Current Status Of It With Special Reference To India, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr

Ratnesh Dwivedi

Community radio is a type of radio service that caters to the interests of a certain area, broadcasting content that is popular to a local audience but which may often be overlooked by commercial or mass-media broadcasters. Modern-day community radio stations often serve their listeners by offering a variety of content that is not necessarily provided by the larger commercial radio stations. Community radio outlets may carry news and information programming geared toward the local area, particularly immigrant or minority groups that are poorly served by other major media outlets. Philosophically two distinct approaches to community radio can be discerned ...


Collision, Judith Tannenbaum Oct 2010

Collision, Judith Tannenbaum

Journals

Exhibition Notes, Number 37, 2010. Collision is an experiment in exhibition-making. It began when painter Jackie Saccoccio invited a group of artists (seventeen, including herself) to contribute works of their own choosing to a show in which paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, prints, videos, and various hybrid forms would literally collide: butting up against each other, overlapping, and even altering one another in an improvisatory fashion. Depending on their placement in the gallery as determined by the individual artists, the works could become entirely subsumed in the larger communal cacophony.

Most often group exhibitions in museums are conceived and organized by ...

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.

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.


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 ...


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 ...


History Of Communication And Its Application In Multicultaral,Multilingual Social System In India Across Ages, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr Sep 2010

History Of Communication And Its Application In Multicultaral,Multilingual Social System In India Across Ages, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr

Ratnesh Dwivedi

The history of communication dates back to the earliest signs of cavemen.Communication can range from very subtle processes of exchange, to full conversations and mass communication. Human communication was revolutionized with speech perhaps 200,000 years ago, Symbols were developed about 30,000 years ago and writing about 7,000. On a much shorter scale, there have been major developments in the field of telecommunication in the past few centuries.


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 ...


A Man And His Mosaics: Owatonna Native Michael Swere Stumbled Onto A Profession In The Art World Starting, With All Things, Cereal Boxes, Melissa F. Kaelin Aug 2010

A Man And His Mosaics: Owatonna Native Michael Swere Stumbled Onto A Profession In The Art World Starting, With All Things, Cereal Boxes, Melissa F. Kaelin

Melissa F. Kaelin

Sweere is a mosaic artist. It’s a profession he stumbled upon after about 20 years of work as an art director for an advertising agency. For decades, he designed packaging for companies like ConAgra, General Mills and Pillsbury — work which resulted in piles of cereal boxes and other assorted samples lying around his office and his home. Anxious to reuse and recycle, Sweere saved the samples for a rainy day, and soon began to tease artwork out of them.

The Scuola Dei Mercanti: Social Networking And Marital Mobility In Sixteenth-Century Venice, Rachel D. Erwin Aug 2010

The Scuola Dei Mercanti: Social Networking And Marital Mobility In Sixteenth-Century Venice, Rachel D. Erwin

Art and Design Theses

Renaissance marriage is a much-studied subject, yet little attention has been given to the influence of marital practice on the civic affairs of confraternities. By considering the decisions of the Venetian Scuola dei Mercanti confraternity through the lens of Venetian marriage practice, I demonstrate how the Mercanti employed a multi-alignment advancement strategy in a manner similar to that employed by marriage partners seeking upward social mobility. Specifically, I argue that the Mercanti’s maneuvers were carried out for the purpose of transforming itself from a scuola piccolo to a scuola grande. Viewed from this perspective, the Mercanti’s artistic and ...

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 ...
