Title: The Imagined collection, a story
Author: Knapik, Nancy
Abstract: Music was the creative inspiration that provided the underlying rhythm to this body of work. It was guided by the concept of ethereal sound materializing into tangible found objects whose attributes included the ability to visually invoke the fleeting emotional memories of the listening experience. This written thesis serves to discuss the philosophies and aesthetic choices these conceptual themes prompted while making the work. It includes an artistic exploration of the fascinating nature of collection and the association between art and memory. The oral defense of the work brought to light the need to address the distinction between the <italic>maker</italic> and the <italic>collector</italic>. This written discussion addresses those two personas along with physical descriptions of the final body of work, inherent metaphors, researched influences, and the subtle intent for the work to resonate as a visual language.
