National Geographic: "Food: Our Global Kitchen"

Sitting down at a table in Leo’s with friends, I never talk about where my food comes from. Usually the conversation involves the bad feeling Leo’s food leaves in our stomach. They point out the dry meat, cold noodles, stale cookies, and valiantly assert that they would do anything to avoid eating the cafeteria food….

The Weekly List: Escape

[8tracks url=”http://8tracks.com/carleytucker/the-escape-folk-and-bluegrass” ] The word midterm is definitely a misnomer, especially when the infamous “midterm season” seems to last for about two months. The late night studying, last minute cramming, and steady stream of tests can become overbearing and, at times, simply annoying. I’m sure in those stressful moments, our minds have wandered to happier…

The Beauty Of Purity

“A wilderness, in contrast with those areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape, is hereby recognized as an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.”         -From the 1964 Wilderness Act Is there anywhere that has…

To establish the Dream of realities…to strive for the pursuit of the Intangible and meditate—in silence—to inscribe the mysterious Meaning.–Henry van de Velde, 1890 Do we dream of realities or do we seek to make realities dreams? Amidst the stress of midterms, presentations and large coursework, reality sits upon our shoulders like a heavy burden,…

Square Dancing not only for Squares

Our taxi driver carefully guided us through the maze of cars that lined the dark, narrow street. He seemed a little confused dropping off a group of college students in front of a church located on the corner of a quiet road. Leaves rustled and a brisk wind blew across our faces, reminders of the…

Looking in to Look Out: Wyeth and Windows

By:

Windows can be an opening to the outdoors. They can provide glimpses into enclosed, secret rooms or become gateways to unreachable places. But the square or rectangular shape of windows can also be limiting, restricting our view to a simple geometric scene and shaping our eyes to see a specific perspective. With the constant chaos…

Indelible: Permanence and Photography

Indelible: Permanence and Photography

By:
09/05/2014

We use photography to make a moment concrete, perfectly capture a scene, or preserve the fleeting burnt oranges and deep royal purples of a setting sunset. We are on the perpetual quest for the ideal view, setting, angle, and light, so that what we see can be transformed into a tangible, handheld snapshot. However, what…

To Imitate and Deviate

To Imitate and Deviate

Beyonce is revered as an idol. But, when paired with Jay Z, she transforms into a goddess. Together, the Carters become a dynamic duo, selling out concerts and creating an obsessive (bordering on scary) fan following. Their work not only as a couple but also as musicians demonstrates the power and benefits of artistic collaboration….

The Power of the Photo

The Power of the Photo

By:

We spend a lot of money on big, new, fancy cameras in order to capture perfection: a golden sunset over clear Caribbean waters, a young budding poppy hidden among a field of wildflowers, or the exhilarated smile after a last minute basket. We become set on capturing beauty and joy in its most perfect form….

The Pop Art Conundrum

The Pop Art Conundrum

By:
04/09/2014

I have always associated Pop Art with the critique of our consumer culture. Using bright colors and an impersonal, flat form to draw the audience in, the artists of this movement employed commercial techniques to meet the new high demand for art. Yet, the many prominent Pop Art artists featured in this new exhibit located…
