1. Orouji, Omid. Presence of the Absence.

Degree: M.F.A, Department of Art., 2016, California State University – Northridge

My multimedia work explores cultural and religious degressions. Beginning with culturally and religiously familiar themes, I synthesize space through installation and objects to manifest my critique of these institutions. The geometric shape of the Noghteh (point, dot), the fundamental character in Persian calligraphy, and other traditional motifs, become the aesthetic foundations that inform my work, which distorts, expands, and recontextualizes these historically laden forms into implausible two and three-dimensional installations. In my work, the most basic manmade module, the cube, embodies Kaaba, a religious landmark considered to be the house of God in Islam. I augment, multiply, and arrange it to critique social structures driven by religion. I use a variety of substantial materials, including wood, plastic, concrete, metal, and ice. Some works are rigid and static while others corrode and melt in time. The disparity between large quantities and quotidian materials echoes the distinction between infinite versus temporal, manmade versus natural, anonymous versus attributed, and secular versus religious. Advisors/Committee Members: Rizk, Magdy (advisor), Fields, Samantha M (committee member).

Subjects/Keywords: manyness of reality; Dissertations, Academic  – CSUN  – Art.

2. King, Kellan. Home, an Ecology.

Degree: M.F.A, Department of Art., 6, California State University – Northridge

My sculpture re-contextualizes objects and systems related to my perception of home. A profound sense of being unmoored in the world brings me to analyze my relationship with sites that serve as my anchorage. Meticulous craft, beauty as it relates to the uncanny, as well as surface, process, and worth inform my work. Grounded in post-human philosophy, my sculpture considers the perceptual world of particular objects within systems. Wood, plastics, bronze, and cement serve as units within novel aggregations and contexts proposing new perceptual realities between orange and subdivision, peacock and plastic, material and history, and object and artist. An orange cast in cement, for example, simultaneously represents the historic groves and the contemporary suburbs of the San Fernando Valley when placed in a grid used by both civic planning and agriculture. These potentials suggest that the delineations we draw between a part and its whole are false when the scale of systems is addressed. Rather, a cell may exist as a constituent of an oak tree but also retains its singularity as a unit. I prioritize equality among objects by addressing the scale of systems without subjugating or dividing them. Advisors/Committee Members: Tedeschi, Christian R (advisor), Fields, Samantha M (committee member).
