Chasing the Dragon: Capturing the Significance of the Monstrous Chapter One: What is a monster? There are perhaps two kinds of monster: the monster that sprung from our own hands and changed into something uncontrollable, and the monster that is experienced as alien, preternatural, generally an unfathomable creature, and frightening because of its mystery. It is impossible to decide which is more frightening, since both suggest an Other, something resistant to human power, and while the first...
What is white space? White space, also recognized by most as negative space, is the unmarked space between graphics, texts, and margins. To be precise, it is basically all spaces that possess absent of contents. Sandy Wheeler argued that, most people do not understand the role of white space and often consider them simply as ‘blank' space.However, in my opinion, this perception is incorrect. Even though white space does not hold contents in the way that a photograph or text...
Chapter 4: Finding and AnalysisFINDING The first discussion of this dissertation in this chapter is how "punk" initially is just music. This is followed by how "punkers" dress up as a reflection to their music. This costume soon became a part of world fashion due to its uniqueness and emphasising on something that is really different that global fashion does not have. This costume is easily attracting the youth around the world especially in the United Kingdom and United...
Nans GoldinIntroduction If a still image can speak, it will tell you stories that will capture your imagination. It can describe how the photographer feels when taking the shot; it can also explain the emotions by the subjects to which the photograph has been taken, what the ambience of the location was and what the main feelings are during the poses. Even if the subject of the picture is not a living thing, that subject can be brought to life by the amazing shot captured by the master...
My aim for my final project is to have a professionally finished wallpaper design. Along with this idea I would like my wallpaper to be displayed in a house, perhaps in a show home, so people can see my work and see what it looks like in a room. This is because many aspects can affect the appearance of the wallpaper, for example, the lighting. If the light is very harsh and bright it can cause the colours to appear different and not look as effective. However if there is a soft glow it can...
Photography from its very beginning served in a beneficial manner to democratize portraiture, expanding its boundaries and traditional uses. It no longer remained as an exclusive privilege of the aristocracy, the only class to afford it. By expanding its periphery, photographic portraiture not only complicated its function, but raised several intriguing issues in the new domains it spread to. By far, it complicated issues of identity and self-representation. Portraiture which was...
I. Introduction Many design techniques for IIR discrete time filters have adopted ideas and terminology developed for analogue filters, and are implemented by transforming the transfer function of an analogue ‘prototype' filter into the system function of a discrete time filter with similar characteristics. In our project we require IIR filters (both Butterworth as well as Chebyshev Type I methods using bilinear transformation are tried to get the minimum order filter that...
The first mass use camera became available at the turn of the 20th century and can be traced back to the year 1900 and during the 20th century the pace of technology development in cameras and photography continued at an accelerated pace much like many other key technology developments, just like how a digital camera evolved into a DSLR. My question now is if you are willing to buy a camera, should you buy a DSLR or a Digital Camera? This is a question that you need to answer for yourself and...
Abstract This paper examines the theories of rational planning, incremental planning, and planning as a political process. It compares these three influences of planning specifically to town planning. Furthermore, the importance of rational planning, incremental planning, and planning as a political process will be highlighted in the examination of a case study of the ADA Light Rail Planning Project. Conclusions will be made as to the role these theories, in combination with politics, play in...
Entrepreneurship and BusinessThe innovation of sunglasses Successful innovations are rarely a product of a single entrepreneur's creation. The vast majority of inventions can be made more efficient at their specific job during years of improvement and experimentation, incorporating many different individuals' opinions and ideas. "The 20th century brought an explosion of new products" (National Historic Landmarks, 2007)[1] which has consequently, over the last century, led to the world...
