Biafra And The Politics Of Humanitarian Consumption, Chi-Chi Ayalogu Oct 2019

Biafra And The Politics Of Humanitarian Consumption, Chi-Chi Ayalogu

Conference: The Social Practice of Human Rights

The Nigeria-Biafra War (1967-70) is overwhelmingly represented by photographs of malnourished, sickly looking and often protein-deficient children, iconic and complex images that encapsulate the narrative of an impoverished black Africa in the western imagination. While these photographs reveal the grievous, inhuman atrocities that took place in Biafra, they have come to be negatively associated with the entirety of black Africa, as they tend to validate inaccurate ideas of homogeneity on the continent. Yet despite their homogenizing effect, Biafran leaders re-appropriated images of suffering for propaganda use, specifically to elicit a humanitarian response and thereby procure aid and resources from denizens ...

The Artist Residency And Lumen Printing, Austin Cullen Apr 2019

The Artist Residency And Lumen Printing, Austin Cullen

Undergraduate Research Conference

The artist residency is a critical and informative experience that is privileged to few, and revered by many. Creating work in a completely foreign environment can yield beautiful and new work that the artists could have never conceived of making. Artwork could be made about anything, but choosing a specific subject matter, or theme, can be very challenging. This difficulty arises from lack of knowledge, experience, or most importantly, being bored with one's surroundings. Artist residencies, often being in other countries and always providing a new atmosphere, can be a great way to jumpstart new artwork. Residencies are incredibly ...


Art Gallery, Bria Rice Apr 2019

Art Gallery, Bria Rice

Show Your Stripes Research and Creative Showcase

My art gallery is a compilation of photography between the years of 2012-2016. Today, I do not do photography as much as I did back then. It was something not only that I was good at but it was something that I enjoyed growing up. I started off receiving a camera and taking pictures of things outside. I then begin to find small interesting things in nature like a lady bug on a leaf for example. As time went on, I developed a love for photography and expanded to specializing in editing, graphic design, and photoshoots. Photography is a hobby ...


Parental Absence In Modern Narratives, Mario Avalos Apr 2019

Parental Absence In Modern Narratives, Mario Avalos

Conference for Undergraduate Research at FIU

The protagonists of most fictional stories are characters whose origins often involve traumatic events that either lead to them wanting to do good in the world or wondering what their purpose really is. In many cases, this event is often something closely related to the central character’s parents. This “parental absence” can and generally does become a defining trait of the protagonist as they progress through life and, more evidently, through the immediate narrative. Considering the prevalence of this trope in television, film, literature, and other popular media, it is important to identify the recurring conflicts characters undergoing “parental ...


A Place Of Gemütlichkeit: The Holden Village Of Augustana German Professor Erwin Weber, Julia Meyer May 2018

A Place Of Gemütlichkeit: The Holden Village Of Augustana German Professor Erwin Weber, Julia Meyer

Celebration of Learning

Lying in Augustana’s Special Collections are three insignificant looking items. Two three-inch black binders with white labels which read “Holden I Copy” and Holden II Copy” in red ink. These two binders along with a plastic spiral-bound paper compilation are photographs and memories of former Augustana German professor Erwin Weber’s summer at Holden Village in 1977. Titled “My Days at Holden,” this compilation is an unpublished photo-book detailing the wilderness and the people of the community of Holden Village. This isolated village situated in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State draws many individuals, including Erwin Weber who in ...

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.


Making Visible: More Of The Picture, Sarah Slavick Mar 2018

Making Visible: More Of The Picture, Sarah Slavick

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

In Linda Nochlin’s essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?, “ she demonstrates how, for centuries, institutional and societal structures had made it “impossible for women to achieve artistic excellence, or success, on the same footing as men, no matter what the potency of their so-called talent, or genius.” As the Guerilla Girls noted, only 1 woman had a solo museum show in NY in 1985, and, in 2015, 30 years later, it wasn’t much better with 1 at the Guggenheim, Met and Whitney, and 2 at MOMA. On International Women’s Day, March 1, 2017, I ...


Hashtag Meta- Dissecting The Ways Social Media Mimics Aspects Of Mental Illness, Britney Segermeister Mar 2018

Hashtag Meta- Dissecting The Ways Social Media Mimics Aspects Of Mental Illness, Britney Segermeister

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

Life as a millennial means by the end of our lifetime the internet and our existence in it will have had a presence throughout the majority of our life. For most their participation would have begun in pre-teen to adolescent years, our most transitional stage before reaching physical and legal adulthood. Has social media had an impact on our society and are Millenials the most susceptible? This project explores a visual response to the effects of social media, with the creation of visual personalities and intersection between the tangible and the digital.


Alien Lands, Carissa Mosley Mar 2018

Alien Lands, Carissa Mosley

Seaver College Research And Scholarly Achievement Symposium

Alien Lands has been an academic year-long study and cross-media art endeavor, researching the history of palm trees in Los Angeles and documenting their current presence. I photographed and made videos of the palm trees in Los Angeles and ended the project with a ceremonial installation/performance, grieving the colonial history and unsustainability of palm trees by ironically commemorating them. This body of work is meant to provoke discussion of palm trees' iconicization, their ubiquitous invisibility in our environment, their colonial history, and their likely nonexistent future.


The Eighteenth-Century Origins Of Sally Mann’S “New Child”, Victoria L. Pitts Apr 2017

The Eighteenth-Century Origins Of Sally Mann’S “New Child”, Victoria L. Pitts

Georgia College Student Research Events

Sally Mann’s 1992 series, Immediate Family, of sixty-five gelatin silver prints captures her three young children—Emmett, Virginia, and Jessie—in various stages of nudity while delighting in the pleasures of childhood games, including roller-skating, swimming, and fishing. Critics have argued that Mann’s overtly sexualized depictions of her children transgress the traditional, unsullied representation of youth in art history. The abandonment of proper social norms for the comportment of children in Mann’s work parallels similarly transgressive themes explored by other twentieth-century photographers, including Diane Arbus and Nan Goldin. Arbus and Goldin reveal the world of outsiders in ...

Revitalizing Central Washington University's Largest Art Collection: New Photographics, Skyler Crady May 2015

Revitalizing Central Washington University's Largest Art Collection: New Photographics, Skyler Crady

Symposium Of University Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE)

New Photographics was a nationally known photography exhibition held at Central Washington University. Organized by the late CWU emeritus, Jim Sahlstrand, the show ran from the early 1970s to the late 1980s. During its time, New Photographics was an anticipated event for photographers across the nation and for the CWU Art Department, where it was hosted in the Sarah Spurgeon Gallery. In the late 1980s, the exhibition fizzled out and has ceased to reemerge. Since then, an enormous amount of documents and artwork has been stored in a small room in Randall Hall and has rarely been touched. During this ...

Detecting Rule Of Balance In Photography, Uyen T. Mai, Feng Liu May 2014

Detecting Rule Of Balance In Photography, Uyen T. Mai, Feng Liu

Student Research Symposium

Rule of Balance is one of the most important composition rules in photography, which can be used as a standard for photo quality assessment. The rule of balance states that images with evenly distributed visual elements are visually pleasing and thus are highly aesthetic. This work presents a method to automatically classify balanced and unbalanced images. Detecting the rule of balance requires a robust technique to locate and analyze important objects and visual elements, which involves understanding of the image content. Since semantic understanding is currently beyond the state of the art in computer vision, we employ the saliency maps ...


Gilded Age Visual Media As The Impetus For Social Change: Jacob Riis’S Reform Photography And The Antecedents Of Documentary Film, Denitsa Yotova Apr 2014

Gilded Age Visual Media As The Impetus For Social Change: Jacob Riis’S Reform Photography And The Antecedents Of Documentary Film, Denitsa Yotova

Graduate Research Symposium (GCUA) (2010 - 2017)

This study examines the birth and evolution of the social documentary genre in visual media. It suggests that a mixture of ideology, technology, and social awareness are necessary for a successful social reform. It finds that despite the limitations of technology during the nineteenth century, social documentaries were produced long before they were part of the genres of photography and film. By focusing on the work of Danish photographer Jacob Riis and tracing the emergence of film, this study demonstrates a connection between documentary film and Riis’s social documentary photography and public slide exhibitions. The study concludes that in ...
