Mind In Hand, Anna Olson

Bachelor of Fine Arts Senior Papers

This thesis explores the intersection of art and psychology as it manifests in my art practice, particularly in the medium of weaving. The contemporary frameworks of memory and archive provide the basis of this discussion, as well as findings from the field of Art Therapy. Difficult emotions like loss and grief often show up in my work, and I will discuss how artists like Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Sophie Calle also utilize these concepts. In weaving, I capture my internal mental states, memories, and perceptions of the future in a variety of found and gifted objects. Guided by the precedents set ...

Still, Samuel Lambert Williams

Senior Projects Spring 2016

Still concentrates on façade as a means of considering what we can see and what we decide to show. I am curious about the relationship between our memories and our photographs, and how only the latter is truly accessible to others. In order to communicate what I see before me as best as possible, I ask those who I photograph to be still so that their likeness may be translated faithfully. In our stillness we can become increasingly aware of our surroundings and of ourselves. Though “still” describes the absence of motion, it also describes a continuation from the past ...


Lost-And-Found Photos: Practices And Perceptions, Todd J. Wemmer Jan 2016

Lost-And-Found Photos: Practices And Perceptions, Todd J. Wemmer

Doctoral Dissertations

Personal photographs become separated from their original owners in a number of ways, due to time or tragedy, sometimes ending up in strangers’ hands. Dealers, collectors, curators, bloggers, scholars, and families actively seek what are frequently called “orphaned,” “abandoned,” or “found” photos and present them to the public in multiple formats. This dissertation offers an analysis of the practices and perceptions that surround these presentations, and it argues for use of a more inclusive term (“lost-and-found”) to describe personal photos that are connected to both finders and losers.

Data were collected in three primary ways: (1) examination of the current ...

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 ...

Turning To See Otherwise, Jennifer L. Martin Aug 2014

Turning To See Otherwise, Jennifer L. Martin

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This thesis dossier, in combination with an exhibition at the McIntosh Gallery, considers whether an archival collection can generate an alternative narrative other than that which may already exist in the original film and photographic documents. Rather than represent a singular truth, I seek to articulate the transformative realities of collective memory by re-orienting the material for broader viewer identification. I have mined photographic and filmic materials from a personal family archive to focus fragments that specifically record the gesture of the turning face—the turning towards the observer. This “turn” then includes both the turn towards the initial film-maker ...
