Excavation and Exploration of the Roman Frontier

Roman_Villa_Excavation_2018-13thfa0

Roman_Settlement_Excavation_2018-1xkaujv

GPR_Workshop_Syllabus-183a2gz

We are continuing to make great strides into a new understanding of the development of the Roman frontier populations. Dacia (i.e. modern historical Transylvania) was, arguably, the most important frontier of the Roman Empire: its gold and silver sustained the collapsing imperial economy for two centuries. However, the “imperial idea” on the Eastern European Provincial frontier was more complex that Rome ever expected it… and it even outlasted the idea of Rome itself. Local Roman Provincial realities, born out of economic, cultural, social and political creolization, constant and dynamic negotiation of power, and shifting populations have outlived the ideological centers that have claimed historical ownership of these regions, creating their own distinct expressions of identity.

 

Our programs offer a very extensive approach to the anthropology and archaeology of the Roman frontier environments, through field work, laboratory analysis and lectures. Our participants will be able to experience several field approaches, ranging from Classical excavation, anthropological site exploration, traditional STP (shovel test pit), geochemical soil (phosphate) and geophysical (Ground Penetrating Radar – GPR) surveys, aerial and satellite imagery analysis. Our programs provide a complete and scientifically integrated approach to a Classical site, in a very complex environment. In a region fundamentally important to our understanding of European genesis.

 

Our programs:

 

Roman Provincial Settlement Excavation and Survey – Life by the Imperial Roads

 

Location: Rapolt, Hunedoara County, Transylvania – Romania

Dates:

Session 1: June 10 – June 30, 2018

Team Size: 12-15 participants per session

E-mail: archaeology@archaeotek.org

Description: The integrated results of our various field techniques have yielded extraordinary results: a rural built space of ca. one hectare, with massive fortification walls decorated with exterior frescoes, with richly built two stories buildings, containing exceptional artifacts (well preserved bronze statues, jewelry, pristine condition coins, writing implements, etc.). Our target excavation, the central building of the “villa” has already presented us with a very complex and surprising occupation sequence and practices. Cost: US$ 1295 per session (program fees, equipment, room and board – see flyer for details).

                                                                                  – and – 

//// Role/Play: Collaborative Creativity and Creative Collaborations Student Fellows Symposium

National Academy of Sciences; Washington, DC
March 12-14, 2018

This unique interdisciplinary experience is two distinct but related events that include the Student Symposium on March 12 and the Colloquium on March 13-14.

//// Role/Play: Collaborative Creativity and Creative Collaborations Student Fellows Symposium

March 12, 2018, Washington D.C.
Supported by the Arthur M. Sackler Foundation for the Arts, Sciences and Humanities and Google, Inc.
Organized by Liese Liann Zahabi and Molly Morin

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – DUE NOVEMBER 15

North American graduate students enrolled in masters and doctoral programs across all disciplines are invited to apply to participate in the Monday, March 12 Student Fellows Symposium and attend the Sackler Colloquium which follows on March 13-14, (please note that the selected students are expected to attend all three days of events).  Approximately 50 graduate students will be selected to participate in a series of 15-minute and 6-minute talks and a creative exhibition/poster session that will take place during the Student Fellows Symposium.  

Overview:
Scientists thinking like artists—artists thinking like scientists. When these traditionally defined roles mix together, how is the process of making work or conducting research altered? Does the play between disciplines benefit a designer’s practice, an engineer’s output, or a scientist’s data? What are the hazards and opportunities? 

There is power in looking past the sometimes narrow confines of one discipline: possibilities emerge, allowing artists/designers/engineers/scientists to ask different questions and create innovations. However, this is difficult work. Navigating uncharted territory compounds the uncertainty and potential for missteps that are already a part of the creative, scientific, and engineering process. Emerging areas of research require academics and practitioners to occupy varied and hybrid roles, and to begin investigations within unmapped spaces of inquiry. How can we build stronger bridges that connect innovations in art and design to those in science and engineering? 

This symposium will bring creative and scientific realms together, creating opportunities for thinkers to play within different spaces of inquiry to ask questions about the ways we embark upon this kind of research, to relay techniques and guidelines that have worked in the past, and to explore how we can better support each other in our endeavors. This one-day gathering will give attendees the chance to connect with each other, to create a network of like-minded thinkers, and to share stories of struggle and success. The understandings developed during the Student Fellows Symposium can contribute to the discussions during the March 13-14 Sackler Colloquium.

PLACES FOR EXPLORATION MIGHT INCLUDE:
big-data … wearables … ubiquitous computing … navigation … education … medical practice … health … serious games … information design … ontologies … cyborgs … actor network theory … new materialism … neuroscience … ethnography … artificial intelligence … textiles … robotics … product design … interface design … biological systems … sustainability … tactical media … cognition … mapping … genetics … bio art … sci-art … visualization … molecular modeling … quantified self … smart homes … surveillance … public policy … human-centered design … privacy … generative art/design … cybernetics … information visualization … data journalism … interaction … immersive experiences … integration … social media … citizen science

Eugene Bike Share – Unicorn Bikes

As you may have heard (article in the Emerald this morning), Bike Share is coming to Eugene. Although previously a Fall 2017 launch had been discussed, the system obtained a title sponsor which has pushed back the launch until Spring 2018. This delay has actually provided us with a unique opportunity. As part of title sponsorship, the sponsor gets to determine the color and look of all assets involved in bike share. One of the things that the sponsor has requested is 10 “unicorn” bikes to be part of the system. These are bicycles with unique designs that provide an extra bit of excitement to the system. (See the Sneaker Bikes they did for the Nike sponsored system in Portland). Although the operator, Social Bicycles, has an in-house design person for the system as a whole, the General Manager of the Eugene system is a UO grad and would like to engage UO students in the design of these “unicorn” bikes.

Thanks,

Josh Kashinsky

Art for Sweet Cheeks Winery

I am one of the tasting room managers for Sweet Cheeks Winery and we collaboratively came up with a fun idea for our downtown location at the 5th Street Market.  We would love to showcase some artwork from some of the students at the University of Oregon in our tasting room.  We thought it would be neat to have one student put their artwork up per quarter, and with every art release we would have a little mingle and meet the artist party per art release.
We are very excited about this idea and I would love to set up a meeting to come and discuss the details of what we would like and how to best execute it.  Please let me know if you have any questions! I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Cheers!

SOMA Summer 2018: an eight-week international art program in Mexico City

I am contacting you on behalf of SOMA to introduce you to SOMA Summer 2018, an eight-week international program for artists, curators, art critics, and historians, conducted in English in Mexico City. The program is built around a series of workshops, lectures, individual critiques, and site visits. Every year, activities are coordinated following a specific framework. In 2018, SOMA Summer will focus on Sustainability, looking closely at a handful of organizations around the city (Teotihuacán, Xochimilco, and Texcoco) that are working to maintain an ecological and economic balance. The program is conceived as a hands-on experience where participants will have the opportunity to collaborate with a number of historians, urbanist, lawmakers, and artists, transforming environmental limitations into more socially just possibilities.
We would like to invite current University of Oregon students, or recent graduates, to have the opportunity to take part in our program. For the past seven years, more than 165 participants hailing from 25 different nationalities have been welcomed to SOMA. Moreover, we have built relationships with a number of international universities and arts organizations who have provided travel grant funds and tuition support to their students. We would be delighted to partner or collaborate with your institution.

I am looking for a student to work with me in creating colorable images for a coloring book for Seniors using mythic images and symbols.  We will be using images from my iPhone, digital camera, and film photographs.  I do not know if PhotoShop would be the best program, whether it has a “rotoscope-like” capability, so that only the outline and major details remain for coloring.  Excessive detail will be eliminated for enhancing the coloring experience.  Each of the 15 images (Honeybee, Cosmic Egg, Moon, Threshold, Flood, Garden, Labyrinth, Butterfly etc.) has been given a two-page mythic background text.  My doctorate is in Mythology, with a Depth Psychology Emphasis (and the coloring book has a psychological theme of self-discovery) and I also have a Masters in Fine Arts, Cinematic Arts Production (USC), and so the images are dramatic and relevant.

I am done with most of the writing and am ready to start now in having the images readied for the coloring book.  I have quite a number of local senior communities ready to have me host senior’s activities, as I test the writing and mythic art.

Compensation will be based on experience, and after we have talked.

Jovencio de la Paz Fall 2017 Exhibition

“Broken Symmetry” 
Marylhurst Art Gym
October 1, 2017 – December 13, 2017

For the exhibition “Broken Symmetry,” Jovencio de la Paz has included three new weavings representing forthcoming bodies of work. Woven on a TC2 Digital Jacquard Loom, “Harmony of the Spheres” is the first of a series of textiles derived from Science-Fiction novels, essays, and fabulations. Looking to the works of Ursula K. LeGuin, Octavia Butler, Ray Bradbury, and Frank Herbert, these realized,  imaginary textiles are future ancients, specters of speculative events. “The girl told the story cried,”  is an analysis of human/machine miscommunication. Perfect circles drawn in the space of the digital become irregular, contorted, and stretched ellipses: material distortions of ideal forms captured in thread on the digital loom. The sentence, “The girl told the story cried” is a classic example of a Garden Path sentence: a grammatically correct sentence that is difficult to parse because of syntactical aberrations speckled throughout the English language. Such sentences are Victorian brain teasers, whose meanings are often poetic reflections on the human condition. However, they are also used in Turning tests to evaluate the competence of Artificial Intelligence.

“MoreLand” 
Simone DeSousa Gallery 
October 21, 2017 – December 31, 2017

For the exhibition “MoreLand,” organized by Sarah  Turner and Iris Eichenberg, Jovencio de la Paz has produced an edition of blankets responding to the exhibition’s theme, focused on hardware stores. Modeled after repeating stacks and organized piles of materials like dry-wall, plywood, and other flat-goods, the overshot patterns in these blankets are designs generated by simple mathematical accretion and jostling.

“Brand New Rug” 
Ditch Projects
October 14, 2017 – November 11, 2017

Evoking notions of Colorfield painting, Op Art, Colonial textiles, and DIY culture, “Brand New Rug” is comprised of two large scale weaving installations. While two brightly colored rag rugs span the entire gallery floor, an accumulation of overshot textiles precariously leans against the wall. The works consider the uncertain status of cloth, often occupying a contested and fluid space between utility, artifact, image, structure, crafted thing, and carrier of history.

Video Art and Animation in the Shadow of the Solar Eclipse

Organized by artist Rick Silva, Eclipsecore, an evening of video art and animation made in response to the total solar eclipse, will debut in LA on August 17.

Next Monday, a total solar eclipse will cast a dark shadow over a thin strip of land from coast to coast, the first time that phenomenon has been visible throughout the contiguous US in almost a century. Inspired by this event, artist Rick Silva, in conjunction with experimental video platform Ghosting TV and creative agency WOAH, has organized Eclipsecore, an evening of video art and animation produced in response to the eclipse.

The screening features work by 24 artists, from Andrew Benson‘s trippy, digital abstractions, to Light Hits‘s low-fi, new-age talk show. Preceding the films, there will be a panel discussion with Silva, Benson, WOAH curator Sharsten Plenge, and Sasha Samochina and Marike Jorritsma of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory; the group will talk about the connections between science and art. Following the LA event, which takes place on August 17, Eclipsecore will travel to Salem, Oregon, where it will be screened in the eclipse path on August 20, and then will be available online after August 21. The LA event is free, but donations are requested.

When: Thursday, August 17, 7pm–midnight (RSVP here)
Where: Navel.la (1611 S. Hope St., Downtown, Los Angeles)

Opportunity to become a part of an anime studio

Are you an aspiring animator looking for a place to start your resume? How
about an opportunity to become a part of an anime studio being built from the
ground up?
The Broken Windmill Studio is currently working on an anime based off the
producer’s own DND campaign. Right now all the music is almost done. And the
Story for the first two season are done. The first season is in the works
with full 22 minute episodes with about 13-20 episodes per season. We have
musicians, writers, and artists hard at work but we need more people.
Our main character artist is mainly tasked with drawing the main player
character designs. The roles for artists that need to be filled are:
Landscape, Creatures and Background people.
Our animators are also very few, a plethora of roles are open. What we’re
looking for here are people who can work with Open Toonz animator or MIA. We
have Open Toonz as a first option because it’s free to use in case you the
skill but not the money for the program.
The projected amount of time for us to get the first episode out is at least
next year. When I comes to pay, I can’t guarantee a steady pay or even pay at
all but our plans consist of making our early access debuts available on
first Patreon and from there we’ll see what happens. This is mainly a place
for you animators and artists to get yourselves out there. Expand your resume
and perhaps your notoriety in media with your work.

In 2012, Nim started partnering with PP&R to create arts and culture events at Director Park and Multnomah Arts Center by inviting diverse communities to host events at PP&R facilities. The group used the events to welcome new refugees and integrate them into the community.
