Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

by Weiler, Michael, M.F.A., Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, 2017, 67; 10267249
Abstract (Summary)

WEATHERED is a means to give back and say thanks to all who have helped me through life and offer similar aid to anyone willing to listen. Presented within the CRAIVE Lab at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Technology Park on March 4th, 4pm to 8pm, it depicts an allegorical journey of survival, change, and rediscovery as people are reunited with their identity after separating themselves from it as a means of survival.

In the Thesis, the autobiographical forces behind WEATHERED are defogged, revealing a personal past of birth, growth, abuse, survival, and healing. It will further unravel and look deeper into the artwork's use of allegory, its development process, and conceptual decisions and symbolism, all in conjunction with the artist's creative growth and metamorphosis.
