Date of Defense 2009-04-23 Availability unrestricted AbstractYours, Mine, & Ours utilizes found object assemblage, textiles, art multiples, and installation to present the theme of discovering personal identity through collecting, ownership, affiliations, cultural context, and transformation. This work presents to viewers a tactile experience to be investigated, touched, and transferred to their own lives.
Centered on domesticity, the familiar and ordinary becomes transformed through labor-intensive processes into unique and personal works of art. Viewer participation, in all aspects of the making process, emphasizes the universal human experience of searching for comprehension of our culture. Each artwork is a metaphor for this search and how we are constantly altering our surroundings and ourselves to better understand our identity. The objective of this work is to inspire the viewer to re-examine what comprises their self-concept and to bring new awareness to what we may take for granted.
