The image above is a visualization of a White Cube presentation of my doctoral paintings. Phase 1 of the series is complete. Phase 2 is coming along at a brisk pace. The exhibit simulations I am conceiving as a conceptual conceit, a virtual fiction with potential for realization. The sim above is by far the most staid of all the variations I am considering.
The search among appropriate venues for the PhD thesis expo is ongoing. Inquiries are welcome.
The scans above show the first twenty pages of the thesis. The blog post previous to this one is a digitized version minus notes. I am still experimenting with the mode of publication of the BETA draft. So far I haven't felt thoroughly satisfied with the results, and am therefore proceeding slowly, testing options offline. I am posting the sequence in order on the AFH website HERE. The format is old-school click-thru.
For now I am maintaining the Oxford/Ruskin application/portfolio HERE. The goal is still to discover and enter a program capable of facilitating the completion of my doctoral work. I applied to and was accepted at Columbia Teachers College/Creative Technologies certificate program, in the hopes of being able to transition to a PhD track, but for several reasons that approached proved impractical. Recent inquiries include UT-Knoxville, which has a new-ish 4D program for MFA candidates and some offerings for undergrads, and the Philadelphia College of Art, which is launching a low-res summer intensive program in 2018, a PhD in Creativity.
