Author: Emily E. Auger Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/07/2013

This study shows the development of tech-noir as a film genre in its relationship to the Promethean myth and to earlier popular genres, particularly gothic, detective, and science fiction. It lends particular attention to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1818), Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886), and Herbert George Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), both texts and film adaptations, and their relationship to tech-noir. Others include: The Matrix , RoboCop , eXistenZ and The Terminator , and more. The filmography includes 227 films released between 1970 and 2005, each of which is briefly summarized and discussed in relation to other films of the type.

The Way of Inuit Art Aesthetics and History in and Beyond the Arctic

The Way of Inuit Art Aesthetics and History in and Beyond the Arctic

Author: Emily E. Auger Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/06/2011

Inuit art, both ancient and contemporary, has inspired the interest of scholars, collectors and art lovers around the globe. This book examines Inuit art from prehistory to the present with special attention to methodology and aesthetics, exploring the ways in which it has been influenced by and has influenced non-Inuit artists and scholars. Part One gives the history of the main art-producing prehistoric traditions in the North American arctic, concentrating on the Dorset who once flourished in the Canadian region. It also demonstrates the influence of theories such as evolutionism, diffusionism, ethnographic comparison, and shamanism on the interpretation of prehistoric Inuit art. Part Two demonstrates the influence of such popular theories as nationalism, primitivism, modernism, and postmodernism on the aesthetics and representation of twentieth-century Canadian Inuit art. This discussion is supported by interviews conducted with Inuit artists. A final chapter shows the presence of Inuit art in the mainstream multi-cultural environment, with a discussion of its influence on Canadian artist Nicola Wojewoda. The work also presents various Inuit artists' reactions to Wojewoda's work.

Modern Tarot and Other Meditation Decks History, Theory and Aesthetics

Modern Tarot and Other Meditation Decks History, Theory and Aesthetics

Author: Emily E. Auger Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/12/2003

Hundreds of new Tarot decks have been produced in the late twentieth century, many of them based on the structure and images of Arthur Waite and artist Pamela Smith's Rider-Waite deck (1910). The continuing popularity and influence of the Rider-Waite deck makes it a standard for identifying, categorizing and analyzing contemporary Tarot and other meditation decks. This work of art history analyzes such decks in relation to conventional art styles and movements, including Symbolism, Surrealism, the modernist grid and the low/high value hierarchy, and postmodern art movements and concepts such as the dissolution of the modernist value hierarchy, Pattern and Decoration art, and collage. It also examines them in relation to literary concepts, including the novel, utopias, and popular genres. The author's analysis is supported by numerous illustrations, including the Rider-Waite major arcana cards juxtaposed with examples of their counterparts from more recent decks.
