looking for an advanced photography intern

My name is Bill Leissner.

I live in Portland, OR and I am looking for an advanced photography intern.

I studied photography in the 80’s in the University of Texas (Austin) art department with Mark Goodman, who succeeded Russell Lee and Garry Winogrand as the tenured social documentary photographer. Mark is a Guggenheim fellow and has work at MOMA, and has published several books. I shot 3500 rolls of film in Austin in the 80’s which has recently received much interest. I am working on a book project which is expected to go to press next Fall. There has been interest in acquisition expressed by several reputable archives, and it appears that I have a growing group of loyal followers. I started a FaceBook group to share my work a year ago, and it now has 3500 members. Many of the people in my photos were beloved icons of the time, and it appears that there is much nostalgia for that time, and that place, and those people.

I now live in low-income senior and disabled housing, with limited means, but I have managed to build a professional scanning and printing workspace, and cashflow adequate to cover basic operational and material expenses. I need help with organization and cataloging an archive that has been determined to have significant historical and educational value, and building an online repository for the purpose of collaboration with several university associated archives and publishers who have expressed interest in acquisition.

I am looking for an intern interested in this sort of work, and I’m confident that I can provide an academic credit worthy educational experience in exchange. I have a considerable amount of teaching experience.

Thank you for your consideration.

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

Session 3: July 22 – August 11, 2018

Team Size: 4-6 participantsper session

E-mail: archaeology@archaeotek.org

Description: The project integrates Classical excavation approaches with various exploratory field techniques, ranging from STP (shovel test pits), geochemical soil analysis (phosphate spot testing), and surface field collection coupled with topographical total station assisted mapping. We will be looking at the transformation of the countryside in relation to the development of the Imperial road river infrastructure, and the role of our “palatial villa” in the development of a “creole” Roman landscape. Cost: US$ 1295 per session(program fees, equipment, room and board – see flyer for details).

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).

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.
