Senior TED Fellow, and Visiting Research Assistant at the Centre for Fundamental Living Technology, Department of Physics and Chemistry, University of Southern Denmark. Rachel is a sustainability innovator who investigates a new approach to building materials called ‘living architecture,’ that suggests it is possible for our buildings to share some of the properties of living systems. She works collaboratively across disciplines to build and develop prototypes that embody her approach.

Dr. Armstrong designs sustainable solutions for the built and natural environment using advanced new technologies such as, Synthetic Biology – the engineering of living systems – and smart chemistry. Her research prompts a reevaluation of how we think about our homes and cities and raises questions about the urban environment of the future. She creates open innovation platforms for academia and industry to address environmental challenges such as carbon capture & recycling, smart ‘living’ materials and sustainable design.

Her award winning research underpins her bold approach to the way that she challenges perceptions, presumptions and established principles related to scientific concepts and the building blocks of life and society. She embodies and promotes new transferrable ways of thinking ‘outside of the box’ and enables others to also develop innovative environmental solutions.

Lecture: Jon Coleman, “Here Lies Hugh Glass: A Mountain Man, a Bear, and the Rise of the American Nation”

August 29, 7-8pm
CE Yale Pratt Room
Jon Coleman, Professor of History, Notre Dame University
“Here Lies Hugh Glass: A Mountain Man, a Bear, and the Rise of the American Nation”
Support provided by the IUPUI Department of History 

In the summer of 1823, a grizzly bear mauled Hugh Glass. The animal ripped the trapper up, carving huge hunks from his body. Glass’s fellows rushed to his aid and slew the bear, but Glass’s injuries mocked their first aid. The expedition leader arranged for his funeral: two men would stay behind to bury the corpse when it finally stopped gurgling; the rest would move on. Alone in Indian country, the caretakers quickly lost their nerve. They fled, taking Glass’s gun, knife, and ammunition with them. But Glass wouldn’t die. He began crawling toward Fort Kiowa, hundreds of miles to the east, and as his speed picked up, so did his ire. The men who took his gear and left him to rot were going to pay.

Here Lies Hugh Glass springs from this legend. The acclaimed historian Jon T. Coleman delves into the accounts left by Glass’s contemporaries and the mythologizers who used his story to advance their literary and filmmaking careers. A spectacle of grit in the face of overwhelming odds, Glass sold copy and tickets. But he did much more. Through him, the grievances and frustrations of hired hunters in the early American West and the natural world they traversed and explored bled into the narrative of the nation. A marginal player who nonetheless sheds light on the terrifying drama of life on the frontier, Glass endures as a consummate survivor and a complex example of American manhood. Here Lies Hugh Glass, a vivid, often humorous portrait of a young nation and its growing pains, is a Western history like no other.

IU School of Informatics and Computing develops massive multiplayer game for Gen Con

When Gen Con opens its doors in Indianapolis, a massive multiplayer alternate reality game created by 40 Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis students and six faculty will be center stage.

The game, “Return of Aetheria: A game by the Media Arts and Science program at the IU School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI,” uses video mapping and projectors that will create a large crystalline display; stereoscopic 3-D; a smartphone app; the entire convention center as a play area; and costumed actors portraying characters.

“Return of Aetheria” was developed as a result of an educational partnership between the Media Arts and Science program and Gen Con, one of the largest gaming conventions in the world. Known for introducing revolutionary gaming to the public, the annual convention has taken place in Indianapolis since 2003, attracting 40,000 visitors in 2012. Gen Con 2013 takes place Aug. 15 to 18 at the Indianapolis Convention Center.

The IUPUI students and faculty worked eight months on the project, crafting a game based on the theme of an epic quest to restore magic to the world. The app will guide players through various quests.

As quests are completed, players will see the results on the large crystalline display in real time through video mapping projectors. As the game continues, more and more dramatic events will appear on the crystalline structure and surrounding space.

The Media Arts and Science program has partnered with several businesses — including Mayfair Games, one of the largest board games companies in the world — to offer players $3,000 worth of prizes.

“We are combining several unique levels of technology and game design to create this experience,” said Mathew Powers, a lecturer in the IUPUI Media Arts and Science program and the project’s leader. “This has never been attempted before at this level, and we will demonstrate what the heck we can do, because I think we do some amazing things here.”

The partnership between Gen Con and the Media Arts and Science program brings together an event committed to the advancement of play and gaming and an academic program dedicated to the creation and production of games, Powers said.

Since the partnership was established last year, the Media Arts and Science program has added two classes, one on pre-production and the other on production of games, Powers said. While students learn how to create games, he said, perhaps most importantly they gain what potential employers want: the real-world experience of actually doing it.

The project has involved 3-D and 2=D artists, video mapping, animators, computer programmers, and narrators and actors who will be costumed and role playing as part of the game.

“We are blurring the lines between reality and the game through the use of cutting-edge technology,” Powers said. “Having the entire convention center space act as our play area will bring an uncanny gaming experience to all our players.”

Three students and a faculty member will don costumes and play game characters. They are student Robert Lastinger as Ah K’in, the Fire Champion; student Brittnee Thompson as Irisi, the Air Champion; professor Albert William as Espir, the Spirit Champion; and student Elspeth Eastman as a mystery character.

Faculty who have assisted with the project are Todd Shelton and Travis Faas, who worked on programming; Albert William, who worked on 3-D; Thomas Lewis, who worked on video/media; and Joseph Defazio, director of the school’s Media Arts and Science program.

Other students and students who graduated who contributed to the project are Brittney Conway, who has been the project’s dedicated assistant; Adam Glasscock, video mapping expert; and Kathryn Steele, art lead.

Powers plans to have students add on to the game each year, creating new versions for display at other conventions.

Herron Art Library to showcase its collection of artists’ books in First Friday event

Work from the Herron Art Library’s museum-caliber collection of artists’ books will be on view at the opening of a new exhibit this week.

Herron Art Library is part of the IUPUI University Library, which is partnering with the Harrison Center for the Arts to sponsor an exhibit titled “Spineless,” an Indianapolis Downtown Artists & Dealers Association First Friday event. The exhibit opening reception starts at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug.2, at the Harrison Center for the Arts, 1505 N. Delaware St. in Indianapolis. The artwork will be on view until Aug. 30.  Both the reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.

“Spineless” builds on four years of successful collaboration between the library and the Harrison Center to promote local and regional book artists in the field of fine arts. Work from 16 artists was chosen for this juried show to take place in the Harrison Gallery. As in the past, the University Library will award a $400 prize to the best in show. Opening night will feature a selection of books from the Herron Art Library’s permanent collection as well.

Also returning this year to give a hands-on talk about artists’ books is nationally recognized book arts dealer Bill Stewart of Vamp & Tramp Booksellers.

The Herron Art Library’s collection of artists’ books contains many forms of the book arts, including fine press books illustrated by artists such as Mark Rothko and miniature books, some conveying powerful messages addressing social and family issues of personal significance to the respective book artist. Artists’ books often become a personal extension and means of expression of a significant event or issue in an artist’s life.

Significant book artists represented in the Herron Art Library collection include Julie Chen, Ron King and Rebecca Goodale, plus local book artists, Bonnie Stahlnacker and Karen Baldner. New additions to the collection can be seen in the newly redesigned artists’ book alcove at the Herron Art Library on the IUPUI campus, 735 W. New York St., Indianapolis.

Any resident of Indiana is eligible for an IUPUI University Library card. Our resources and librarians are also available on the University Library website. Browse the online collections to learn more about the road to Indiana statehood, the history of the National FFA Organization, writer James Whitcomb Riley and much more, or contact a librarian specialist for help with professional and school-related research.

IUPUI Music Academy turns children into composers

Don’t tell the youngsters sitting in front of large computer monitors with earphones clamped to their ears that they are engaged in something serious like problem solving. They are having too much fun composing music tracks in an IUPUI Music Academy summer class.

The children are creating six 33-bar tracks using the Garage Band software, which allows users to become composers, regardless of their knowledge of music.

“It’s really fun,” said 9-year-old Lilly. Cameron, 11, looked forward to showing his father his latest compositions. “I showed him what I had done (in a previous) class. He was kind of confused, but I helped him.”

The children are among 35 youths from an all-day sports camp at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis who were enrolled in the weeklong Music Academy class, which meets for 90 minutes a day.

The IUPUI Music Academy is an independent community music school, operating under the auspices of the Department of Music and Arts Technology in the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI. It was established in 1996 as an outreach program for the communities surrounding the IUPUI campus.

In addition to engaging with the sports camp youngsters this summer, the Music Academy also worked with 74 TRIO Upward Bound first-generation college-bound students and 35 high school girls from across the country who participated in the School of Engineering and Technology’s Preparing Outstanding Women for Engineering Roles program, sponsored by Rolls-Royce. The classes for the high school students have concluded.

Participants in Preparing Outstanding Women for Engineering Roles are invited to the program after expressing an interest in that field. The weeklong experience includes activities like a trip to the Honda auto plant, where the girls met with female engineers. It also includes sessions devoted to GarageBand.

GarageBand strikes a natural chord with younger people, said E.J. Choe, an assistant professor of music and director of the IUPUI Music Academy. “The Christmas wish list of this generation begins with products whose names begin with the letter ‘I’: iPad, iPhone, iPod.

“This marries an old art form with technology, which lures them into music, whether they play an instrument or not,” she said. “Everyone wants to be a composer, and kids quickly learn how to use the software to do it.”

There is a strong connection between engineering and music, said Terri Talbert-Hatch, assistant dean of student services. “Introducing them to GarageBand is a way to show them that technology can be fun. The name of the GarageBand class may not have the word engineering in it, but it’s all about technology, solving problems and being creative.”

Two IUPUI research centers receive Signature Center designation

Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis has selected the Research in Palliative and End-of-Life Communication and Training Center and the Institute for American Thought to receive IUPUI Signature Center designation. This distinguished recognition is based on the centers’ achievements during three-year funding under the Signature Centers Initiative Grant Program.

“The formal designation of the RESPECT Center and the Institute of American Thought as IUPUI Signature Centers is well-earned by the internationally recognized work of the faculty and staff,” IUPUI Chancellor Charles R. Bantz said. “The two centers together illustrate the range of scholarship at IUPUI — from translating research into practice for one of the most challenging times in a person’s life to leading literary and philosophical scholarship.”

Ten centers and institutes have received official Signature Center designation since the initiative grant program’s inception in 2006.

“The Signature Centers Initiative has become a key cornerstone of the IUPUI research enterprise, playing an important role in enhancing research and scholarly activity, while fostering the development of research centers that are bringing national and international recognition and visibility,” said Kody Varahramyan, IUPUI vice chancellor for research.

Researchers at the RESPECT Center successfully brought in over $22 million in funding to support research to grow the knowledge base around communication about palliative and end-of-life care, according to Susan Hickman, Ph.D., of the School of Nursing, a co-director of the newly designated signature center.

The RESPECT Center hosted a statewide conference in March that focused on evidence-based palliative and end-of-life care, attracting 145 professionals from across the state. A second conference is planned for March 2014.

The RESPECT Center also provided support for the Indiana Patient Preferences Coalition, which led to the passage of the Indiana Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment Act, which took effect July 1. This communication tool documents patient preferences in the form of physician orders.

“Achieving Signature designation is an honor that is [both] a recognition of the work of RESPECT Center investigators and the importance of this topic,” Hickman said. “Researchers on the IUPUI campus are committed to improving the care of seriously ill patients and their families through evidence-based approaches. We are extremely honored to support investigators in honoring that commitment.”

The Institute for American Thought is home to five scholarly editions publishing critical, authoritative texts of three American philosophers, Charles Peirce, Josiah Royce and George Santayana; former slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass; and American fantasy writer Ray Bradbury. The institute preserves, researches and publishes the papers and works for these scholarly editions, all of which have a global audience and international reputations. The institute also sponsors two academic programs: American Studies and a graduate certificate in Professional Editing.

“The funding provided through the Signature Centers Initiative allowed the institute to pursue the development of a content management system, which can be used by critical editions like those being done here at IUPUI,” said David E. Pfeifer, an original Signature Centers Initiative funding awardee and former Institute of American Thought director.

“This funding prepared the ground for receiving a National Endowment for the Humanities digital humanities start-up grant,” he said. “The application, called STEP for Scholarly Text Editing Platform, is being tested within the Peirce Edition and will be presented this fall to NEH, who will release the open-access platform to the public for its adaptation and use.”

The dissemination platform will become an online resource within which scholars can comment on the texts, the editing of the texts and the work of each other. It will benefit text editors in Indiana and the nation, said Marianne S. Wokeck, who became the director of the Institute for American Thought on July 1.

“The significance of this work is that it makes editing transparent and collaborative; all the editors of a text can review all the work online at any time and track the changes being made,” said Wokeck, also Chancellor’s Professor of History and former School of Liberal Arts associate dean for academic affairs.

According to Pfeifer, this content management development is but one aspect of the work of the Institute for American Thought. The library and archival resources associated with the editions and housed in the institute attract visiting researchers from across the nation and around the globe.

Herron’s free exhibitions and artist’s talks kick off the fall 2013 season with an eclectic mix of stimulating works and people

The Herron Galleries will come alive beginning in early August with a group show that reveals the blurring boundaries between mediums, the latest in contemporary works by select alumni, and nationally-acclaimed graphic designs by the sibling duo known as Commercial Artisan. The reception for all three shows will be on Friday, August 23, 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

 

Shape Shifters
August 9—September 12, 2013
Robert B. Berkshire, Eleanor Prest Reese and Dorit and Gerald Paul Galleries

Shape Shifters will be a group exhibition “rich in the uncanny,” according to Herron’s Gallery Director Paula Katz.  The exhibition features contemporary art by Mike Andrews, Kevin Baker, Paul DeMuro, Tracy Featherstone, Dil Hildebrand, Betsy Odom, Melissa Pokorny and Leslie Wayne. Choosing works from “edible, cake-like forms” to “video that dares to ask if something on a screen can still be sculpture”, co-curators Katz and Assistant Professor of Painting Robert Horvath have carefully thought about pushing the viewers’ notions of two traditional media—painting and sculpture. Paul DeMuro and Betsy Odom will give an artists’ talk on September 11 at 6:00 p.m.

 

Herron Alumni Show 2013: Life After Herron
August 2—August 23
Marsh Gallery

This year’s biennial Herron Alumni Show is co-curated by Katz and alumnus Phil O’Malley (B.F.A. ’07, Fine Arts) rather than juried. The net result promises to quite literally hang together well. The exhibition will feature works completed in the last two years by Stephanie Barlow (B.F.A. ’13, Printmaking), Jessica Bowman (B.F.A. ’11, Photography), Jeff Geesa (B.F.A. ’07, Painting), Stacey Holloway (B.F.A. ’06, Sculpture), Carla Knopp (B.F.A. ’84, Painting), Lauren Kussro (B.F.A. ’03, Painting/Printmaking), Desiree Moore (B.F.A. ’09, Photography), NERS Neonlumberjak (B.F.A. ’09, Painting/Sculpture), Tré Reising (B.F.A. ’09, Sculpture), Jared Smith (B.F.A. ’11, Painting), Distinguished Alumna Lois Main Templeton (B.F.A. ’81, Painting), and Ruby Troup (B.F.A. ’08, Furniture Design). “It is a delight to get to look at fewer artists in more depth,” said Katz, commenting on the change in format.

 

Commercial Artisan: ink / paper / staples / glue
August 2—August 23
Basile Gallery

Brothers James (B.F.A. ’87) and Jon (B.F.A. ’03) Sholly, who both graduated from Herron with degrees in Visual Communication, went on to form Commercial Artisan, a graphic design studio that develops award-winning concepts for clients from local non-profits to the Fortune 500. Their credo is deceptively simple: There is no excuse for bad design. Their work proves this is no empty conceit, but a way of life.

Recognized in major forums and publications including Design Observer, Print, Eye, Emigré and Communication Arts, the Shollys also have claimed honors in the design competitions of the American Center for Design, the professional designer’s organization AIGA, and the popular aficionado’s blog “For Print Only”. The Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum has featured Commercial Artisan’s work in the exhibitions “Mixing Messages” and “Graphic Design: Now In Production”.  Ink / paper / staples / glue captures in one venue for the first time highlights from 20 years of Commercial Artisan’s work.

ACLS/SSRC/NEH International and Area Studies Fellowships

In order to encourage humanistic research in area studies, special funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and ACLS has been set aside for ACLS/SSRC/NEH International and Area Studies Fellowships to be designated among the successful applicants to the central ACLS Fellowship competition. Scholars pursuing research and writing on the societies and cultures of Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, Eastern Europe, and the former Soviet Union will be eligible for these special fellowships.

Application must be made to the ACLS Fellowship Program and all requirements and provisions of that program must be met, with the addition that an International and Area Studies Fellow must be either a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident who has lived in the United States continuously for at least three years by the application deadline. These fellows also must submit a final report to both NEH and ACLS. Designation of the ACLS/SSRC/NEH International and Area Studies Fellows will be made by ACLS.

ACLS/New York Public Library Fellowships

ACLS may give up to five residential fellowships per year in conjunction with the New York Public Library’s Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers. The Center for Scholars and Writers provides opportunities for up to 15 Fellows to explore the rich, diverse collections in the NYPL’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building (formerly the Humanities and Social Sciences Library). The Center also serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas among Fellows, invited guests, the wider academic and cultural communities, and the interested public. It provides individual office space and common areas in the Library building. Fellows are required to be in residence from September 2, 2014 through May 22, 2015 and to participate in Center activities. These may include lunches, panel discussions, public conversations, symposia, and interviews. More information about The New York Public Library and its collections is available at http://www.nypl.org/research-collections.

The stipend for the NYPL residential fellowships will be $65,000. Application for an ACLS/NYPL residential fellowship has the same eligibility requirements, application form, and schedule as the ACLS Fellowship Program, with the additional proviso that these residential fellowships will be granted to scholars whose projects will benefit from research in the NYPL’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.

Please Note: Because this is a joint fellowship, applicants for the ACLS/NYPL residential fellowships must also apply to the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the NYPL. The application for the NYPL competition is available at http://www.nypl.org/csw. The deadline for application and letters of recommendation is September 27, 2013.
