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).

2. higgins, j. j. ( Dissertant ). :capture [les mots juste].

Degree: M.F.A, Art and Art History, 2006, University of Florida

:capture [les mots juste] is an examination space, a container, in which the audience experiences being both subject and object, while interacting within the space and its contents through discovery and play. This project in lieu of thesis is a visual application of a diachronic theory of the machine that centers on the significance of information through constructed language, time, memory, and place. This gallery installation references Baudrillard's simulacra; Foucault's; panopticon; de Certeau's everyday; Fillou's ideas, objects and events; Cage's transcendent silence; and de Saussure's structural linguistics in a synthesized laboratory environment. The project, :capture [les mots juste], consists of surveillance cameras and monitors, video/audio information stations, a clear vinyl tent that represents both a private and public space, and a video projection that requires the audience to intervene within the projected viewing space. In addition, a countertop display case contains artifacts, relics, and objects elevated to a perceived value by this mechanism of separation and control; protected from the audience by the glass wall, but accessible from behind. The audience is invited and encouraged to become part of the space, to play, and to change the system by inventing new rules of operation. While participants in the system explore, examine, and reflect upon their relationships with the objects, their behaviors are being monitored, recorded, and collected, to be projected in another part of the space. Observers and participants can trade places, but never see themselves in each role. So, to whom is the machine answerable? An experiment, :capture [les mots juste] is a contained space simulating the machinery of social controls, designed to involve the audience in examining public and private behaviors.

3. 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).
