Constructing space: experiments in light

Gleave , Michaela Ruth, Art, College of Fine Arts, UNSW January 2007 (has links)
The research undertaken during this project has resulted in an investigation of atmospheric phenomena within constructed space, using light, space and water as primary materials to explore the peripheries of human perception. The project examines the extremities of human sensory experience as a means of navigating and further understanding the finite nature of our experience of 'reality'. We construct and apprehend a cohesive idea of our surroundings based on the information given to us by the senses, which are inherently limited in their capabilities. This thesis explores ways of deconstructing the processes involved in the creation of our contemporary understanding of reality, physiologically via the senses and externally through the active and conscious construction of our surroundings. The illusive and intangible nature of atmospheric phenomena is utilised in the practical component of this project for its ability to remain perceptually just out of reach; the distances in the sky cannot be judged, the air around us cannot be felt, and water in its forms of cloud, mist, ice, rain and snow hovers around the perimeters of materiality. In isolating phenomena such as these within fabricated environments the project aims to bridge the conceptual gap that exists between the highly constructed nature of our increasingly urbanised existence and the natural world.

Empathy as a factor of the sublime and beautiful in a wilderness environment

Unknown Date (has links)
Contemporary views on the aesthetics of nature fall into two opposing schools of thought; the cognitive school where philosophers such as Allen Carlson believe that science can explain everything about the aesthetics of nature, and the non-cognitive where, for example, Arnold Berleant maintains that science is a sufficient though not a necessary condition for the aesthetic appreciation of nature. Berleant and others of his kind contend that an engaged multi-sensuous relationship with nature will manifest the required experience. Empathy with nature, specifically primal empathy is the focus of this research, but empathy can only be experienced from a phenomenological perspective. I have walked over two hundred miles in over 70 Florida state parks, including an autumn trip to Vermont and back. During this journey I came to experience a personal connection (empathy) with nature that I now believe is grounded in holism and a methodology of the sublime leading to the beautiful. The main conclusions derived from this research are: self-realized individuals will experience the connection I speak of more quickly than those who are not, and the genius nature artist through a creative act grounded in primal empathy can reveal the Ideas or Forms of nature to those who would otherwise never experience them. This research also concludes that empathy with nature, specifically primal empathy, is a new element that can reduce the cleft and help unify the two opposing views. / by Robert L.J.
