1. Aman, Hina. Visualizing geo-temporal documents: an application to data from crisis maps.

Degree: Computer Science, 2012, University of Manitoba

Crowd-sourced crisis mapping is a relatively new phenomenon and platform that enables the collection and visualization of real-time crisis data submitted by users through social media tools and cellular technologies. Crisis maps are generally used by both state and nonstate actors for sense-making and as a reference point for action. The current crisis map visualizations only show the location documents such as reports or short messages have been generated from. Such a limited representation fails to immediately show important content, such as themes from a document and their changes over time. As a result, sense-making becomes time-consuming and cognitively demanding. I present a set of visualization tools: Geo-Temporal Tag Visualization (GTViz), Geo-Temporal Pies and Geo-SparkClouds that treat the tags on the crowd-sourced reports as spatio-temporal textual datasets and provide interaction tools to explore the content of the reports. I also demonstrate the value of such tools with case studies and a controlled user study. Advisors/Committee Members: Irani, Pourang (Computer Science) (supervisor), Leung, Carson (Computer Science) Mandal, Saumen (Statistics) (examiningcommittee).

2. Kemp, Virginia Millner. Theoretical Concerns In the Geometric Abstractions of Peter Halley.

Degree: MA, Art, 2009, University of South Carolina

This thesis examines the sociological and aesthetic theory that forms the basis for Peter Halley's artistic program. While Halley has been the subject of numerous articles and interviews, there are no full length monographs on the artist that examine the progression of his work from its emergence in the early eighties to the mature work of the last decade. In particular, the underlying theory - that of his own making, as well as that of the thinkers who have influenced him - has been treated in a cursory fashion. The result has been a general tendency to view his paintings as inextricably bound to the social theory of poststructuralist thinkers (particularly Jean Baudrillard and Michel Foucault), with little or no attention given to other influences that have exerted pressures of at least equal, if not greater significance. In order to provide a more thoroughly rounded view of Halley's production, I have explored influences that have had a significant impact on his thinking, but are located outside a postructuralist system of thought. This is not to say that I have eschewed the contribution of the French philosophers. The writings of both Baudrillard and Foucault were integral to Halley's early theoretical assumptions and continue to inform his mature work. However, my primary focus has been on those matters, aesthetic as well as societal, that have occupied the artist throughout his career, but have not been sufficiently addressed by art historians and critics. These include, but are not limited to, the writings of contemporary sociologist Richard Sennett, as well as works by the early twentieth century social theorist, Norbert Elias, and the Dutch architect, Rem Koolhaas. While I have focused primarily on the sociological implications of Halley's oeuvre, I have also examined the validity of the artist's place in the art historical continuum. Accordingly, the last chapter deals with Halley's formal investigations and aesthetic theory, especially as they relate to the culture. Advisors/Committee Members: Bradford R. Collins.

3. Krispinsson, Charlotta. Abstrakt konst idag : En studie av Ann Edholm och Jacob Dahlgrens förhållande till modernismen.

Degree: The School of Culture and Communication, 2007, Södertörn University College

This paper presents an approach in contemporary, abstract art for a new way of experiencing modernist abstraction. This has not been possible until now, about 40 years after the postmodern turn against modernism in art, and the closely connected formalism. This new approach is represented in this paper by the Swedish contemporary artists Ann Edholm and Jacob Dahlgren. Modernist artists such as Kasimir Malevich and Piet Mondrian receives a new relevance to contemporary abstract art. This opens up for a new, more complex and more dialectical understanding and re-evaluation of modernism and its abstract art.This is shown by a historical and chronological investigation which highlights modernist abstract art, formalism, and the critical and post-modern Neo-geometric ‘abstraction’ of the eighties. This background has been a way of proving how modernist abstraction still can possess a validity for contemporary art today, and even vitalize a continuation for abstract art as a contemporary practice.
