Title: Matter of taste
Author: Loduca, Maria
Abstract: My thesis Matter of Taste illustrates how art and design distinctly overlap. My aim was to move fluidly between art, design, and craft. This thesis represents my observation of the ways in which art and design are embedded in our daily life and culture. I began to apply photography to a greater variety of fields. Advances in printing technology now mean that images can be printed on just about anything, from garden buckets and mugs to paper towels and wardrobes. In my thesis, I also questioned how photography can be used as an object and a design element. In terms of digital technology, I address the bridge between technology and craft. I analyze elements of art and design, production, and allocation as independent activities associated by craft. Matter of Taste can account for likes and dislikes, and to understand part of my work I explored the philosophy of beauty and how it relates to taste, specifically looking at the threads that cross over between beauty, taste, and aesthetics. In my research, I also address food and the table-how both can be seen as constructs of identity, pleasure, and transformation.
