1. Kyriakopoulou, Olympia. Η γνωσιοθεωρητική διάσταση της τέχνης με έμφαση στη μικρογλυπτική.

Degree: 2018, University of Western Macedonia; Πανεπιστήμιο Δυτικής Μακεδονίας

The present thesis aims to be both a systematic study on the cognitive dimension of art and a “reading” guide for jewelry and ceramic small-scale sculpture, as artwork, a means of externalizing the creator’s and the receiver’s own self, as conveyor of the history and narrative of the material, as a tool of knowledge and development of the philosophic thought. The ultimate goal sought by the present research study is for the reader to perceive and understand the existing and timeless relevance of art and knowledge, the interdependent character of sculpture and micro-sculpture, the elevation of a piece of jewelry to artwork, the cognitive value of matter and form, cutoff from any restrictions related to the dimensions, exhibition, the place or the function. It is likely that the cognitive and philosophic assessment of modern jewelry and ceramics contributes to the mental exaltation of the spectator as well as of the conveyor and the observer, the exploring of his spiritual horizons and the upgrading of his educational background. Only so will the modern man change the way he perceives the modern small-scale sculpture, jewelry and ceramic objects and only so will this form of art stand out in the place it deserves.The present research study is divided into two main parts. 1. The first part, foremost theoretical, sets out the background of the study and approaches the prevailing positions related to the investigation of the cognitive dimension of art in general. The questions raised in this part of the project are related to the value and meaning of art in the course of the history of philosophy as well as to the nature and character of art both in the past and the present. The two chapters forming the first part of the thesis examine the central question “whether art generates knowledge” and the individual philosophic questions that seek the essence of art, beauty, senses and imagination as expressions of knowledge and understanding of human life. More specifically, the key positions of Plato, of Aristotle, that is, of the ancient Greek philosophy, of Plotinos, of the transformational-neoplatonic philosophy, of Augustine, of the medieval philosophy, of Kant, Schiller, Nietzsche, of the modern philosophy and of Arnheim, of the contemporary philosophy are explored. 2. The second part of the thesis is related to the practical study of the problem, examining and analyzing the case study, that is, small-scale sculpture as a form of art generating knowledge, focusing on jewelry and ceramic art. Within the context of the exploratory case study effort, data are collected from various bibliographic and internet sources, in order to achieve the global description of the under examination form of art and of its specific kinds. Therefore, the seeking of data composing the empirical approach is still performed through bibliographies, through alternative or non-alternative sources, such as articles, exhibition catalogues, interviews, artwork presentations, etc. The differentiation consists in the fact that the research is focused on…

2. Milner, Meaghan. "Junk".

Degree: MFA, College of the Arts / School of Art, 2013, Kent State University

My thesis work, which consists of a series of small scaled, mixed media constructions, is inspired by the beauty and complexity of the natural world in which we live. There is beauty in the harmony and balance found in the intricate arrangements and order of a variety of living systems such as the rising and falling tides, human DNA structures, life cycles of plants, and the orbits and rotations found in our galaxy. Each work is intended to reveal the density and sophistication of these networks through layers of information and intricate detail. Found wooden cases, drawers, wire, reclaimed metals and recycled plastic, found glass objects, thread, monofilament, and mylar are just a few of the materials I work with to create my sculptures or assemblages. The beauty and sophistication of the diverse elements in the natural world have inspired me to create these small scale assemblages or microcosms. Using science and nature as a foundation, I allow my interest in the reuse and transformation of found objects to direct the construction of these intimate environments. I hope the size of the work and layers of visual information entice viewers to explore the spaces and consider the numerous associations evident from my unique orchestration of elements. Advisors/Committee Members: Lessman-Moss, Janice (Advisor).

3. Mansilla-Miranda, José. Crossing the Cartography of Exile .

Degree: 2015, University of Ottawa

Crossing the Cartography of Exile explores ideas of territoriality, hybrid identity and transculturation. The thesis and exhibition is the result of two years of Practice-Led Research, which is the performative research methodology, carried in the La Chapelle Woodshop of the 100 Laurier Avenue East Building of the Department of Visual Arts. The building was the former Juniorat du Sacré-Coeur of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate built in 1893-94. The Woodshop is the former chapel of the seminary therefore has references to a place of prayer and worship and for my praxis became a place to re-enact the ancient trade of Joseph the Carpenter. The La Chapelle Shipyard inside the woodshop as mnemonic site became a performative site-specific platform specialized in creating small-scale sculptures with recycled and repourposed shipping pallets and a place in which to connect memory with the ancient trade of a shipwright or shipbuilder. Small-scale sculpture then became a symbolic marker for the intimacy of a personal and free territory made of repurposed shipping pallets. Therefore, by working with recycled changeable materials I fashioned a poetic visual language to enchant the wound of exile.
