Thesis Review Presentation

By Barry O'Keefe

In mid spring semester of our second year, grad students in the School of Art + Design meet with the professors on our committees to discuss our thesis projects. I used a projector to tell the story of my work so far, and describe how my proposed thesis extends this research. The abstract of my project is included below. The featured images are of past, related work. You can read more about my work so far at my website: www.barryokeefe.com Open Inbox | Abstract “I propose to create a series of five public art installations in Richmond, Virginia. These sculptures will act both as monuments to neighborhood history and identity, and as functional community message boards and meeting points. At a time in our culture when traditional models of community are under threat, these sculptures will provide neighbors a way to connect, communicate and construct shared identity. Each message box will be designed for a specific Richmond neighborhood. The sculptures will take the form of shallow covered boxes, enclosed by walls and doors featuring carvings and decorative patterns which tell the story of each place. These carvings will reference through imagery and architectural design the unique character and history of the spaces they inhabit. The interior of the boxes will provide a deeply needed public space for expression and communication. Five artist books, investigating the history of the five neighborhoods chosen, will be exhibited alongside the sculptures – allowing viewers access to the research which has informed each piece. Following my thesis exhibition in Spring 2016, I will establish permanent homes for each sculpture in Richmond, in partnership with the Department of Planning and Development Review. Functional sculptures following this design have the potential to expand to other neighborhoods within the city of Richmond, and to other cities interested in strengthening community and enlivening the landscape of the street.”  ...

These images document process work conducted in the senior graphic design studio during Fall of 2013, under the direction of Molly Schoenhoff. Included are sketches, concept maps and exploratory writing. Students worked in teams to create a strategic identity system for the West State Street Research Gardens. Plant Biology Professor Art Trese and graduate student Sarah Minkin consulted students on the project. The project is affiliated with the Common Experience on Sustainability.
