129 Home Ave., Ella Whittemore Hill Jan 2018

129 Home Ave., Ella Whittemore Hill

Senior Projects Spring 2018

Walking through my childhood home late at night, half asleep with my eyes barely open, I was always able to navigate myself around every corner, down every hallway, and past every creak in the floor. The muscle memory of this house, which I left behind long ago, continues to live within my body. Memory becomes faint over time; it changes and evolves, but it never disappears. Rather, it matures from the physical specificity of being in a house to being the stories of that house. When my mother moved out a few years ago (a move which I was unable ...


I Love You Three-Fifths, Brittany B. Tucker Jan 2018

I Love You Three-Fifths, Brittany B. Tucker

Senior Projects Spring 2018

Disparities in representation are gaps that can be filled. They’re also abundances that can be destroyed or dispersed. Misrepresentation is another useful tactic. In “I Love You Three-Fifths” I’m choosing to misrepresent the white body by caricaturing and simplifying it in order to address the relationship between American blackness and whiteness through portraiture. This “dis-representation” allows me to paint intimacy and interaction without committing to the Western ritual of rendering white bodies. Instantly, by rendering myself realistically, I become the primary subject. I am real while the white man is the joke of the painting. It’s a ...

American Idyll: A Place To Call Home, Bowen Walsh Fernie Jan 2018

American Idyll: A Place To Call Home, Bowen Walsh Fernie

Senior Projects Spring 2018

I was raised in Italy from the age of five and when I returned to the United States at eighteen, I was surprised by the way I was affected by the landscape I had never known or explored. I found myself drawn to American culture as it is stereotypically represented in movies and TV - the quaint houses, the schools with cheerleaders and locker rooms, the drive-in movie theaters – and began to examine how those stereotypes are reflected in the real world. From this initial interest I began exploring the American space that I envisioned myself inhabiting throughout my childhood and ...


A Womb With A View, Briauna Marie Falk Jan 2018

A Womb With A View, Briauna Marie Falk

Senior Projects Spring 2018

I found my mother’s pregnancy diary when I was 12. The diary presents not only the story of my origin, but also the story of how my biological father left my mother. The diary gave me insight into what unfolded while I was growing inside her, and yet, many questions still remain unanswered. I have heard that trauma experienced by the mother is felt in utero alongside her – I worry one of the first feelings I felt was true sadness. Ideally the diary could answer my unresolved questions, but instead I am left to my imagination. The diary cannot ...


The Illustrated Masterpiece: Teaching The Artist Biography To Elementary School Children Using The Illustrations In Picture Books, Sophie M. Mueller Jan 2018

The Illustrated Masterpiece: Teaching The Artist Biography To Elementary School Children Using The Illustrations In Picture Books, Sophie M. Mueller

Senior Projects Spring 2018

Senior Project submitted to The Division of Arts of Bard College.

Arts programs, particularly ones that focus on education, are constantly losing their funding. Even as Michelle Obama, the former First Lady of the United States, stated that “Arts education is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. It’s really the air many of these kids breathe[1]”, programs that benefit these kids are seeing their budgets slashed, and classroom educators are unable to get the training that they need to provide fulfilling educational experiences.

In an ideal world, museums would be free to everyone who wants to learn ...


"Poetry Is Not A Luxury:" Dis-Ing Self, Dis-Ing Archive, Ehm West Jan 2018

"Poetry Is Not A Luxury:" Dis-Ing Self, Dis-Ing Archive, Ehm West

Senior Projects Spring 2018

‘Poetry Is Not a Luxury:’ Dis-ing Self, Dis-sing Archive,” is divided into three separate interrogations of such rts institutions, archives, and constructions of identity. Each chapter explores how these related categories are challenged by curators, artists and artists’ respective styles or forms. My central focus investigates the use of paraficition and disidentification in Cheryl Dunye's work. In both her early video works and first feature-length film The Watermelon Woman, Cheryl Dunye investigates the complexity of her own Black lesbian identity and the constructedness of identity as a whole. She begins her practice as a moving image artist during a ...


"Can You Shut The Door Behind You?", Nate Millstein Jan 2018

"Can You Shut The Door Behind You?", Nate Millstein

Senior Projects Spring 2018

"Can you shut the door behind you?" creates a parallel between the basement and the subconscious. These settings (one mental and one physical) serve as storage units. In creating these spaces, I became fascinated with the container as a sculptural form; objects whose purpose is to carry and cradle other objects. Pipes cycling water throughout the home, crates and boxes holding family memorabilia, washing machines continuously cycling dirty laundry. My work captures how these containers, abandoned in this forgotten space, grow and decay. The entire space is in and of itself a constructed container a viewer may enter. Casting is ...

The Soft Animal Of Your Body: Seven Attempts To Explain Chronic Illness To Myself And To You, June Naureckas Jan 2018

The Soft Animal Of Your Body: Seven Attempts To Explain Chronic Illness To Myself And To You, June Naureckas

Senior Projects Fall 2018

THE SOFT ANIMAL OF YOUR BODY – ARTIST’S STATEMENT

If I knew how to explain vision loss or chronic pain, I wouldn’t have started this senior project.

How do I communicate the knowledge that my body is slowly failing me, that even the best treatments aren’t guaranteed to work? With whom do I have to speak with to be heard and understood? I’ve previously attempted dictionary definitions, disability accommodation letters from the Bard Learning Commons, repeatedly cancelling plans with friends until they stop inviting me to things, and passive-aggressive conversations with my neurologist. None of these efforts ...

Chalk The Block 2018 Poster, Anne M. Giangiulio Dec 2017

Chalk The Block 2018 Poster, Anne M. Giangiulio

Anne M. Giangiulio

I designed this poster for the annual Chalk the Block event which took place October 12–14, 2018 in downtown El Paso. For the art vendors component of the event, I organized a group of 10 students from my 'Graphic Design 4: Typography' class at The University of Texas at El Paso. Their posters were judged and selected to be on sale in a downtown outdoor booth for the weekend event. All proceeds from the sale of the posters went directly to the students.

Nickel Based Printed Resistance Temperature Detector On Flexible Polyimide Substrate, Vikram S. Turkani, Binu B. Narakatku, Dinesh Maddipatla, Bilge N. Altay, Paul D. Fleming, Bradley J. Bazuin, Massood Atashbar

Bilge Nazli Altay

A fully printed nickel (Ni) based resistance temperature detector (RTD) was successfully developed for temperature sensing applications in the automobile, agricultural and consumer electronic industries. The RTD was fabricated by
depositing nickel (Ni) ink on a flexible polyimide (PI) substrate using screen printing process. The capability of the printed RTD was demonstrated by measuring its resistive response for temperatures varying from -60 °C to 180 °C, in steps of 20 °C and its sensing characteristics such as linearity, sensitivity and repeatability were analyzed. The printed RTD demonstrated a linear response with resistive changes as high as 109% at 180 °C ...

Where Do You Want To Live? A Pilot Study To Establish Housing Preferences Of Young Adults With Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, An Traumatic Brain Injury., Julie Elaine N. Irish, Noorh Aldadi, Marilyn J. Bruin Dec 2017

Where Do You Want To Live? A Pilot Study To Establish Housing Preferences Of Young Adults With Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, An Traumatic Brain Injury., Julie Elaine N. Irish, Noorh Aldadi, Marilyn J. Bruin

Julie Elaine Irish

Young adults with neurodevelopmental brain disorders such as Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorders (FASD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) are often provided with unsuitable public housing that is not tailored to support their differences, needs, and wants. This poster illustrates a pilot research project to survey young adults in this population to find out what their preferences are in terms of where and how they would like to live.
