From Jay:

Getting There:paris

We had some excitement at the CVG airport when one of the students arrived at checking with only 30 seconds to spare . I pleaded at the gate to hold off she will be here . I explained how important making the plane was for her. I think I bought her some time.  Then in Paris airport one student did not have her second boarding pass.  Everyone was already through security except her and I so we wandered around the airport looking for the ticket agents.  Found it and got back to the group about half hour later. Pictured here is us at the Paris airport.

We went to a traditional outside market place in Delhi.  Other picture is lobby of hotel room the royal plaza.

The Thing Quarterly

Issue 13/The Thing

Issue 13/The Thing

 

THE THING Quarterly is a periodical in the form of an object. It’s like a magazine, except that each issue is conceived of by a different contributor and then published on a useful object.

Each issue is reproduced, wrapped, and shipped to the subscribers.

Recently, the DAAP Library became a subscriber to THE THING Quarterly and in doing so, we also ordered all back issues. We’ll soon unveil the entire collection in a cool, participatory performance event will entail our filming of our unwrapping each issue and collaborative construction of an exhibition of the entire collection. You don’t want to miss this. Stay tuned…

Documenting a Fashion Icon: The UC Bonnie Cashin Collection is a ‘test kitchen’, hands-on course that incorporates transdisciplinary inquiry and discourse, student crowdsourcing power, and Millennials innate love for technology, social media, and images, to investigate, interpret, digitize, and widely disseminate authoritative information about an important collection of garments, The UC Bonnie Cashin Collection.

The primary goal of the class: To actively engage UC students in transdisciplinary inquiry and discovery and enable innovation through collaboration AND to provide the global community of designers, historians, curators, students, and design-minded lay people with free and open access to visual and textual information about The UC Bonnie Cashin Collection, a collection with international research potential.

Students who complete this course will understand how to conduct formal, historical, and structural analysis of objects; the historical and cultural value of objects and collections; the principles of collecting and the curation of both physical and digital objects, textile conservation and proper handling techniques, and forms and variables related to physical and digital preservation. Students will learn how to conduct object analysis, interpret information, and prepare succinct, written descriptions of objects; the basics of database and website design; metadata and standardized descriptive language; and finally, how to organize, market, and execute a successful, multidimensional event (an exhibition & opening).

For more information about the class, see our course website! http://libraries.uc.edu/blogs/bonnie-cashin/
