The Polaroid project : at the intersection of art and technology by William A Ewing( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Polaroid instant photography revolutionized the taking and making of pictures, and the story of its beginnings is a simple one. In 1943, after being asked by his daughter why she couldn't immediately see the photograph he had just taken, American inventor and scientist Edwin H. Land conceived of the technology required to make this seemingly impossible demand a reality--within an hour. Land's creation was a groundbreaking scientific accomplishment that also heralded an exciting new chapter of artistic expression. Through the efforts of thousands of photographers the world over, as well as the corporation's own artist support program, which provided many with materials, Polaroid would help shape the artistic landscape of the late twentieth century. Published to accompany a major traveling exhibition, The Polaroid Project is a creative exploration of the relationship between Polaroid's many technological innovations and the art that was created with their help. Richly designed with over 300 illustrations, this beautiful volume showcases not only the myriad and often idiosyncratic approaches taken by such photographers as Ansel Adams, Robert Mapplethorpe, Ellen Carey, and Chuck Close, but also a fascinating selection of the technical objects and artfacts that speak of the sheer ingenuity that lay behind the art. With essays by the exhibition's curators and leading photographic writers and historians, The Polaroid Project provides a unique perspective on the Polaroid phenomenon--a technology, an art form, a convergence of both--and its enduring cultural legacy"--Provided by publisher

Herreshoff : American masterpieces by Maynard Bray( Book )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Herreshoff Manufacturing Company led by its founding spirit, the brilliant designer Captain Nathanael Greene Herreshoff (1848 1938) constructed the most thrilling, innovative, and graceful boats ever built in the United States, not only lavish yachts and thoroughbred racing classes but also daysailers and dinghies, weekend cruisers and motor launches. Marine historian Maynard Bray and Herreshoff expert Claas van der Linde, in collaboration with renowned nautical photographer Benjamin Mendlowitz, present the very finest of the Herreshoff designs afloat today, with insightful commentary on design evolution in every facet from lines to displacement to hardware, accompanied by full-color images of each vessel both in detail and under way, as well as unique color reproductions of Herreshoff s own archival plans and drawings. Each entry incorporates a history of the boat (or class), its owners, race results, and fate, celebrating the many that still grace our waters." --

Si el grano no muere-- = If a grain does not die--( Visual )

2 editions published in 1992 in Spanish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dress rehearsal for the performance Si el grano no muere directed by Rosa Luisa Márquez and Antonio Martorell in the context of their 10-day residency at MIT in 1992. Involving MIT students, high school students and members of the Latino communities in Boston and Cambridge, and featuring metaphorical references to grains, with sets made of corn tortilla, bread, pasta, rice, and other disposable materials, the performance addresses issues of food and shelter that are of social and political concern to the community. The resulting multicultural, multilingual performance involves the audience in a cultural pot luck, a communal voyage of discovery.

She holds a masters degree from New York University and a Doctorate from Michigan State University; she specializes in contemporary theater.
