Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Biology professors, Dr. Natalie Hyslop, and Dr. Jennifer Mook, have studied Eastern Box Turtle habitat use at the Tumbling Creek Nature Preserve adjacent to the University of North Georgia’s Gainesville Campus. Art instructor, Heather Foster, was drawn to the Box Turtles’ highly individualistic patterns. The three professors joined forces invited students to observe and make art about Eastern Box Turtles as they were extracted for their Summer 2018 checkup. After winning UNG’s Faculty Undergraduate Summer Engagement Grant, Dr. Hyslop, Dr. Mook, and Prof. Foster hired two UNG students, Kati Hornick, and Aida Alarcon, to create Eastern Box Turtle ...


11 - Jungle Slang, Andres Osorio Nov 2018

11 - Jungle Slang, Andres Osorio

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Dusk envelops the jungle as light flickers from a small cave. A sweet smell emanates from deep within its passages. As you approach, the soft melody of traditional Moroccan instruments lull you into a trance. The dirt floor of the cave casually fades into tiles and the rock walls are overtaken by beautiful mosaics. The air is thick with the gum and spice burned from incense. Its hazy soot clouds your vision. The passageway seems to extend endlessly until suddenly erupting into a large dimly lit atrium. Tapestry hangs lazily from the lounge’s ceiling in vibrant crimsons and golds ...


Advantages Of Finalizing Undergraduate Creative Projects With A Research Poster, Christopher Maraffi Oct 2018

Advantages Of Finalizing Undergraduate Creative Projects With A Research Poster, Christopher Maraffi

Florida Statewide Symposium: Best Practices in Undergraduate Research

Before coming to FAU, I developed the undergraduate media arts curriculum at USCB, where I assigned research posters to art students as part of their final project presentations. In this talk, I will describe my approach to integrating practice-based research practices into multimedia courses, and how framing creative work as research can benefit student learning. This STEAM (Art+STEM) approach to multimedia pedagogy tries to balance intuitive exploration of creative expression with critical enquiry into the artistic process. Students begin to understand that artists have always been technical and learn to better articulate what motivated their creative work.


Graphicacy: How Fluency In Reading And Making Visualizations Can Yield More Inclusive Reading Experiences, Joshua Korenblat Oct 2018

Graphicacy: How Fluency In Reading And Making Visualizations Can Yield More Inclusive Reading Experiences, Joshua Korenblat

Bucknell University Digital Scholarship Conference

Scholars and students practice literacy, numeracy, and graphicacy in school. In this educational triumvirate, graphicacy remains the less familiar term. Graphicacy is an ability, a fluency in making and reading visualizations and charts. How might scholars working in digital media practice graphic literacy in the shaping and sharing of their work? By working with more awareness of graphic literacy, scholars can also become more inclusive. In this illustrated essay, I will describe how my work in visualizing survey data provides insight into graphic literacy. Survey data is a primary data source. These observations have the potential for meaning yet need ...


One Root, Many Trees: Reviving Collections Practices, Kevin Farley, Emily Davis Winthrop, Ibironke Lawal, Patricia Sobczak Sep 2018

One Root, Many Trees: Reviving Collections Practices, Kevin Farley, Emily Davis Winthrop, Ibironke Lawal, Patricia Sobczak

Charleston Library Conference

Collections are undergoing intense change and pressure from technology, budgetary uncertainties, and emerging perspectives on future approaches. Our case study—drawn from our experiences as collections librarians—examines these complex issues facing academic collections, large or small, across the profession. Through the development of “collections of distinction” within the local collection, collaborations and scholarly partnerships with colleagues and faculty, and advocacy for the importance of dedicated oversight to ensure that collections investments fulfill the academic mission, we explore possible solutions to the complicated issues defining contemporary collections practices.

This exhibition will be on display through the whole conference. The creator will be available during set times. See schedule for details.

The author of the proposal has developed a collection of photographs of what he calls "Art That People Step On."

The collection consists of photographs of art that sees in splatter, spatter, smudges, leaks, and spills on paved surfaces that he walks on.

Like most people the author of the proposal did not notice these "works of art" until the end of the year 2016, and has probably stepped on and walked over several pieces of art before ...

Empathizing With “The Other”: Visualization And Perspective Taking, Lisa Spitz, Liv Cummins Mar 2018

Empathizing With “The Other”: Visualization And Perspective Taking, Lisa Spitz, Liv Cummins

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

As today’s youth blossom into adulthood, they will simultaneously be challenged to develop their sense of self/identity and to cultivate their ability to embrace differences, all while being bombarded by visual media and messaging. Research literature on perspective taking provides a framework by which students can develop an understanding of their own perspective, imagine the world from an “other” perspective, and make connections that link to productive actions (Selman, 1971). Perspective taking as a concept has been linked to greater empathy, compassion, and prosocial behavior (Hardwood and Farrar, 2006). Yet the mechanism for enabling productive perspective taking is ...

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

Join Lesley students and faculty in a discussion of the leading role Haiti has played in struggles against slavery and colonialism in the Americas and globally; its historic and consistent rejections of white supremacist values and dangerous stereotypes in the contemporary moment; and the lived experiences of Haitians working as artists, therapists, learners, teachers, here at Lesley who draw on pioneering Haitian models of epistemology and ontology—on Haitian sources of strength, community, resilience, and vision. Images will also be projected.


Visual Influence And Youth Empowerment, Rebecca A. Cote Mar 2018

Visual Influence And Youth Empowerment, Rebecca A. Cote

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

During adolescence, youth start to look outside of their spheres of family to explore the greater world and they are often left with visual media as the go-to source of information. Media images are contrived to provoke meaning through the use of signs and how they are presented and they manipulate images to impart messages. Youth need to be literate in visual language in order to discern the implied influence.


Ready, Set, Play! Disrupting Our Preconceptions Of Classroom Learning Through Innovative Teaching Practices., Heather Shaw Mar 2018

Ready, Set, Play! Disrupting Our Preconceptions Of Classroom Learning Through Innovative Teaching Practices., Heather Shaw

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

What is play in the context of an undergraduate classroom? For our purposes, play is an attitude and an approach to making work. Both inside and outside of the classroom, there are many ways in which play can serve as a base for serious problem-solving.

As educators, we choose to create a learning environment that provides enjoyment to the people who conduct activities within it. Play does not need to be frivolous — it encourages curiosity, constructive and critical discourse, and provides a safe environment to fail. Framing work within the context of “play” allows students to go beyond their presumed ...

The Forgotten : Child Soldiers, Sam Fee Mar 2018

The Forgotten : Child Soldiers, Sam Fee

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

Child soldiers have been slowly forgotten about by the public over the last century. There are only a few groups of people are trying to fight for these children. As a visual artist, I created a painting, my work entitled Invisible Children utilizes acrylic and wildfire blacklight paint to symbolize the underreported presence of children in global conflict, the hidden image represents the light we need to shine on these issues.

Fishy Finery, Casey R. Stannard, Fijul Kabir

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

There is an abundance of fish scales that go to landfills, but have possible applications for the apparel industry. Scales of black drum fish were used for acid blue 45 dye absorption from textile wastewaters. The purpose of this design was to achieve a more sustainable outcome for the wastewater dyed fish scales by utilizing them on a garment. The aesthetics of the fish scales served as the inspiration for the garment. The design began with an exploration of methods for applying the scales. An evening gown was created to demonstrate the beauty of the scales. Up-cycled fabrics including one ...


Polonaise Meets Zero-Waste, Casey R. Stannard Jan 2018

Polonaise Meets Zero-Waste, Casey R. Stannard

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

This design began with a piece of vintage, red wool melton 58" wide by 144" long. A zero-waste approach was adopted so that none of the fabric would end up on the cutting room floor and because of the importance of sustainability. The present design was meant to visually demonstrate the connection between contemporary zero-waste approaches and historic low-waste garments. Specific inspiration came from polonaise gowns of the 1700s that typically feature a bustled skirt. Patternwork was done digitally in half-scale using a kimono-sleeved bodice. The half-scale pattern was fit on a half-scale form and then sized up. The fabric ...

Unbalanced Contrast, Se Jung Oh, May Chae

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

The purpose of this project was to create a unique ready-to-wear style for professional working women. I desired to make a two-piece jacket and skirt reinventing the tartan kilt as a new key design element for women’s ready-to-wear that could be appealing to various professional working women regardless of age and race. Principles of design such as harmony, balance, proportion, emphasis, similarity, and contrast have been incorporated in an unconventional way. Various sizes of knife pleats were created using the tartan fabric and partially attached to the collar, sleeve, and bodies of the jacket, skirt, and pocket flap. This ...

World Wore Ii, Lawren Cappelletti, Adriana C. Gorea

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

World Wore II is a combination of street wear pieces drawn from the parallels of 1940’s/WWII era seaming and colors, vintage craftsmanship, and modern-day women’s wear. By producing garments using inspiration from old to inspire new, technology becomes a successful tool of creating marketable new craft.
