Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Reclaiming Wonder
by Barreneche, Ingrid M., M.F.A., Florida Atlantic University, 2017, 62; 10610501
Abstract (Summary)

I believe art can offer an antidote to our numbness and rekindle a sense of childlike wonder. Reclaiming Wonder is an installation in which I aim to explore the possibility of evoking the curiosity of childhood in the viewer’s mind and transporting him or her into a dreamlike atmosphere to wander about in wonder through the use of the senses of sight, touch, and hearing.
