1. Perry, Chris. Towards Tower 37: A Director's Journey.

Degree: MFA, Art, 2007, University of Massachusetts

This document chronicles the ongoing production of the computer-animated short film Tower 37. It begins with a close examination of the film itself, emphasizing the visual storytelling components that were the core of my MFA work (particularly character performance, camera, and editing). This is followed by a thorough discussion of the mechanism of producing the film: a sequence of experimental courses I have created and taught at Hampshire College over the past two years. The document then discusses my approach to the craft of directing before concluding with evaluative comments and a look ahead. Advisors/Committee Members: Patricia Galvis-Assmus.

2. Criscuolo, Nicholas M. MeatSpace.

Degree: University of Massachusetts

“MeatSpace” is a group of related bodies of work including podcasts, prints and videos produced by working with simulation technologies such as “weak A.I.”, virtual reality, and 3d scans. Collectively the works explore how people relate to these technologies and how they relate to us. They share thematic or process-oriented sensibilities involving a series of rule-based steps that alternate between the procedural and the intentional. “Uncanny” is defined as strangely familiar. Something which falls in the Uncanny Valley feels wrong, but the reasons may be difficult to articulate. “MeatSpace” is an ongoing experiment to see where our own digital reflections fall in an uncanny spectrum of unsettling familiarity. I am continuously assessing the meaning of words like “consciousness" and “choice”, wondering if they are simply interpretations of randomness and determinism. So I search for genuine glimmers of agency in technologies from the present and the past to better understand my own. The groupings within “MeatSpace” are titled “The Intrinsia Chatbox” (podcast), “Outside the Chatbox” (podcast), “Sweet Space/Spatial Awareness”(prints, video, augmented reality), “Formulaics”(music videos), and “Texture Maps/Morph Maps” (prints, video). “MeatSpace” uses manipulation of photogrammetry, volumetric video capture, procedural music generation, animations made in virtual reality, and a video podcast which showcases conversations with chatbots. I see these as acts of collaboration and play with the digital world and it’s developing tools and inhabitants. These processes employ both randomness and control, operating between meatspace and the digital world, between comfort and the uncanny valley. Advisors/Committee Members: Patricia Galvis Assmus, Copper Giloth, Coe Lapossy.
