    Created in 1958, Sky Cathedral, a piece of assemblage art constructed by Louise Nevelson (1899-1988). As it was created in the 1950s, this piece of art falls into the contemporary period, which stretches all the way from post-war to the modern day. Regarded as one of the most successful female sculptures of the 20th century, Nevelson was born in Russia, however, at of 6, Nevelson and her family moved to America, where she would pursuit her art career.

    This article discussed how any archaeologist can treat house-floor assemblages at any site like the Pompeii systemic inventories. Schiffer points out that archaeologists need to make a difference on how they decide to deal with cultural artifacts that were found in archaeological sites. Schiffer’s point was to establish why there are many reasons why an artifact might be found where it is. He also wants to demonstrate and explain why de facto assemblages are depleting. Michael Schiffer states…

    preemption model, species assemblages are unstable. The dominance preemption model supposes that the first species to invade the communities of relatively few species where a single environmental factor is of dominating importance.

    Here, multiplicities of any kind form and make an assemblage of collective agencies to create a super structure. Here assemblages make relations between stratas in a rhizome network possible. For Deleuze and Guattari “becoming-minoritarian” (106), employing variable minority elements to connect and conjugate them, leads to the creation of a specific, novel, and autonomous becoming. The creation of a somebody and not a nobody within the masses is not orderly, but always multiple as an…

    ceramic production sites is rare to find. It is more fruitful to use indirect methods when evaluating ceramic production. Indirect methods usually evaluate technological aspects, like petrographic understanding the physical makeup of the clay matrix and NAA analysis that characterizes the chemical aspects of ceramic pastes.

    Exceptional monitoring efforts have established a shift from Arctic to Subarctic climate regime within the last decade (Grebmeier et al. 2006). Building on the existing 30-year record of direct observations on the water column and benthic macrofauna, I will extend this record back to the last glacial maximum using geologically young fossil material (<10,000 years old), including both skeletal death assemblages accumulating in the seabed, and recently buried fossils from sedimentary cores.…

    I have choose to do the second option for this prompt and write a new essay about how Robertson’s theories relate to Malcolm X and Gees concepts. The main points i would like to talk about are how her theories of Transfer, Assemblage, and Remix tie into and go against that of which Gee has proposed and to the story of Malcolm X. Transfer as Robertson puts it is using past knowledge and putting it to use in a new situation(pg-187). Gee talks about many key aspects of writing such as Mushfake,…

Porter makes this connection by also stating that “All texts are interdependent: We understand a text only insofar as we understand its precursors”. This means that the assumptions that we make about a piece…

    Maclean’s methodology is collective and abstract, with his construction of assemblage and found objects as a repository of collective memory. He recreates living, human stories with nature in these constructions. In Leviathan Elegy, the ship-like assemblage is accompanied by small round images that show abstract portrays of human figures bowing, engaged in some forms of rituals, and numerous columns. Therefore, the human relationship with the natural world is revealed in Leviathan Elegy in terms…
