Abstract

This written thesis is an overview of Transcendence, a body of research culminating in an MFA thesis exhibition in the spring of 2017. This paper explores that research in relation to the history of video art and philosophy, followed by an analysis of each of the works considering material choice, and formal choices such as aspects of sound and positioning. A critical analysis of the body of works follows, investigating the successes and failures of each piece, individually and as a coherent body of work, in relation to the thesis proposal. The conclusion includes an examination of the process from thesis proposal to finish, and the future potential of this work and my artistic career.
