1. Ibrahim, Amina McKenna. Radical re-envisionings : ancient Egypt, Afrofuturism, and FKA twigs.

Degree: Radio-Television-Film, 2015, University of Texas – Austin

This report considers the role of ancient Egyptian culture and iconography within the genre/aesthetic known as Afrofuturism. It aims to position Afrofuturism at the juncture between alternative and activist media and genre media, highlighting the similar strains of thought and intentions within each body of academic literature, and argues that because genre media and alternative media have comparable goals, Afrofuturism is itself a radical genre/aesthetic. It supports this assertion by discussing the importance of ancient Egypt within Afrofuturism in relation to ancient Egypt's more general cultural significance to the wider North American and European communities. This report concludes with a case study that investigates the use of ancient Egypt by English R&B artist FKA twigs within her music video for her single, "Two Weeks." Advisors/Committee Members: Fuller-Seeley, Kathryn (advisor), Wilkins, Karin G (committee member).

2. Luz, Ana Luísa de Oliveira Moreira da. Análise da formação dos anéis de crescimento anual das árvores ao longo dum ciclo de actividade cambial.

Degree: 2011, Technical University of Lisbon

Mestrado em Engenharia Florestal e dos Recursos Naturais - Instituto Superior de Agronomia

The growing awareness concerning the influence of environmental factors on tree´s growth, particularly under the threat of climate changes, fostered the design of a new method to study cambial activity and xylogenesis along the growing season, under the influence of Mediterranean climate. Unlike the currently used methods, that extract samples from the stem, this method is based on the collection of twigs from the crown, with the purpose of overcoming the disadvantages associated to other methods, such as the impact on tree, the associated cost, the lack of simplicity and of applicability to softwood and hardwood species. The study includes ten hardwood and softwood species. After microtome sectioning and staining (safranin and astrablue) techniques, the sections were photographed and analyzed, aiming at monitoring the ring development and defining the period of cambial activity. The twigs revealed great differences in the radial growth, that might be associated to their particular position in the tree (proximity of leaves, source of photoassimilates) and/or to the effect of the different microclimates created in the crown. The method showed effectiveness in the study of cambial activity, revealing, however, limitations on the study of ring development, due to the impossibility to compare samples.

3. Zanardelli, Theodore. Garden: Smear the Black Circle.

Degree: MFA, Art, 2012, The Ohio State University

Abstract My work, both drawing and painting, contains atmospheres that are made dense and then stretched to the breaking point. The space is crippled and crumpled. The space at times mimics the space of this questionable reality. Realities lead to alternate realities. In the end they are all ethereal and solid, whimsical and solemn. I see no difference between a ditch on the side of the road, the quantity of time in a blink, and that infinitely dimensional and elastic hollow space between life and death. There is the circle of this world, and there is the smeared circle of the “other”. Are my created works simply this reality, or the twigs that hold the soul together? Commentary about my work is structured around a fictitious story about a garden and the man, Shadrack Landini, who owns and maintains it. The story has fifteen chapters and is used as a vehicle that evokes certain concepts that I subsequently address with text concerning my work. I have included quotes from my journals and relevant artists. The reasons for the story are three-fold. 1) My writing is extremely important to my process and the way I create my visual work. My stories are the literary equivalent to my visual work. I have discovered that the way I compose a story and the way I place forms, lines, and interpret space on a canvas or piece of paper are quite similar. The writing addresses the same issues, but often in a more personal and emotive way.2) The story encapsulates my belief that art encompasses all the aspects of life, and that life’s influence is integral to my work. It further develops my ongoing belief that the assessment of this life and reality uncovers other realities. 3) The physicality of the garden and the “making” of the garden are analogous to my “hands-on-making” of my work. The thesis ends with a moderately in-depth analysis of the process, tools, and ideas I am presently employing to complete my paintings and drawings. The method is described, dissected, and examined. Advisors/Committee Members: Lisbon, Laura (Advisor).
