1. Bickis, Heidi L J. Social Theory Encounters Lines and Bodies: Engaging with the Visual Art of Betty Goodwin, Julie Mehretu, Guillermo Kuitca and Juan Munoz.

Degree: PhD, Department of Sociology, 2014, University of Alberta

This dissertation examines the lines in the work of four contemporary artists – Betty Goodwin, Julie Mehretu, Guillermo Kuitca and Juan Muñoz – and explores how these lines invite a particular kind of embodied viewing. Through this analysis of visual art and my own bodily engagements with the exhibited works, the dissertation reflects on how these art encounters encourage social theorists to consider lines and outlines as a potentially rich new vocabulary for theorizing bodies and embodiment. I focus on how the artworks draw out a “lineliness”; that is, the non-depictive and non-signifying quality of lines and their affective charges. Following Jean-François Lyotard, I emphasize the importance of line as line, before it becomes part of a signifier or form. I also examine the intangible and invisible lines that create bodily boundaries and forms (i.e. the shape, affective or physical, a body might take). The dissertation demonstrates that lines offer a crucial conceptual contribution to social theory and in particular to analyses of the fluid, uncontained and indeterminate aspects of bodies. Moreover, it illustrates the value of contemporary visual art for social researchers.

2. Noordhuis-Fairfax, Sarina. Field | Guide: John Berger and the diagrammatic exploration of place .

Degree: Australian National University

Positioned between writing and drawing, the diagram is proposed by John Berger as an alternative strategy for articulating encounters with landscape. A diagrammatic approach offers a schematic vocabulary that can compress time and offer a spatial reading of information. Situated within the contemporary field of direct data visualisation, my practice-led research interprets Berger’s ‘Field’ essay as a guide to producing four field | studies within a suburban park in Canberra. My seasonal investigations demonstrate how applying the conventions of the pictorial list, dot-distribution map, routing diagram and colour-wheel reveals subtle ecological and biographical narratives.
