Fine Art as Book Art

Pastel strokes and earth tones introduce a new book by playwright and novelist, Joanna Gunderson. The front and back cover art for  “she or the unknown person,” was created by Fine Arts Department Chair, Stephanie DeManuelle. The 159-page paperback was recently published by Red Dust, Inc.

Prominent in  DeManuelle’s work, and what can be seen in her book cover art “is gesture, movement and turbulence,” states her website “The rhythms are meant to be a ‘stand in’ for the invisible forces, sensations and tensions that govern our consciousness.”

What Anne Kong Did on Her Summer Vacation

Professor Kong made good use of the City this summer, especially the City’s landmarks and statues. The Visual Presentation and Design professor created 15  giant Skullcandy Aviator headphones for a guerrilla marketing advertising campaign that was to announce the company going public.  It went beyond the normal product shot–way beyond.

“Charging Bull” listening to financial podcasts?

Do you need a swelled head to use these? And what size batteries? Do earphones this size play so loud that they cause stone deafness in the statues?

“The job included sizing them appropriately to fit the Wall Street Bull and 14 other statues located in parks and landmarks throughout New York City for July 20th” said Professor Kong.
