Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

State of being -perpetual motion: Beauty spreading like water
by Okumura, Hiromi, M.F.A., Iowa State University, 2009, 30; 1468157
Abstract (Summary)

This paper is to document the May 11, 2009 thesis exhibition, State of Being: Perpetual Motion, including 20 works hung in the Gallery in the College of Design at Iowa State University. This paper then serves to explain how the body of work was created. The intention of this exhibition is to move the viewer toward a new relationship with art, a relationship where art can and does play an active role in human life. This interaction, may even possibly remove the boundary, between art, and the viewer, that is my goal in making of art. Ultimately I would like to produce art that can transform the viewers' perception of their world.
