  • DRAMA “TUKANG ASAHAN”: The Transformation of Sundanese Culture

    • Authors: Retno Dwimarwati; H. Dadang Suganda
      Abstract: Transformation of Kasundaan (Sundaism) values in a performance is an effort to reintroduce local genius of old Sundanese society to the youth. The process of transformation of old Sundanese values in a drama script into a performance can make the understanding of local ideas in the society clearer. “Tukang Asahan” (TA) performance by Teater Sunda Kiwari is chosen because it is distinnctive by presenting four forms of performance in periodization once lived in Sundanese society. Each period has their own text and context beside the staging of four forms of theatre: Medern theatre, Folk Theatre, Sundanese Plays, and Gending Karesmen with different  rules and characteristics. Pavis method is applied to show Sundaism values transformed in the performance in the introduction of Sundanese logic, ethic, and aesthetic reflected in the story and the performance. The concepts about life viewpoints, tritangtu pattern, sineger tengah, and pancakaki (kinship) are introduced through the performance. Key Words: Transformation, periodization, form of Sundanese theatre, Sundaism values.
  • Performance Evaluation of Unglazed Tiles Produced from Locally Developed
           Tile Making Machine

    • Authors: Abraham David MORAKINYO; Umar Adeiza Adeika SULLAYMAN, Danjuma Sallah YAWAS
      Abstract: A tile making machine (TMM) was designed and fabricated (see Plate IV), varieties of tiles in different sizes and thickness were extruded and certain properties of the tiles were also tested. This is in order to determine and certify the functional reliability of the machine and it’s products when compared with similar machines earlier in operation. A body of ball (Bomo) clay and kaolin (kankara) clay in equal percentage of 50% was used for the tile extruded. Empirical method was employed to prepare the tile materials beginning with locating, identifying and charting of local deposits, exploration, procurement, transportation, beneficiation, compounding/mixing of ceramic materials, aging, production with the prepared recipes, drying and firing which mark the final stage. Tensile, hardness and impact resistance tests were carried out on the tiles produced with the TMM and two ready-made glazed China tiles in the market. The produced tiles results on the tensile test were (20mm = 1311.06 N/ mm2, 15mm = 951.78 N/ mm2 and 10mm = 741.47 N/ mm2); hardness test: (20mm = 40.2 HRF, 15mm = 29.7 HRF and 10mm = 18.7 HRF); and impact test: (20mm = 5.5J, 15mm = 2.13J and 10mm = 0.63J). The two results compared showed significant relationship in the parameters measured. Even though tiles produced from the TMM machine were not glazed but they met the standard parameters for unglazed tiles as obtained in literatures. From the parameters measured and the results obtained these tiles suitably match with the klinker tiles used as floor tiles and for other hard lining surfaces. Keywords: Test, Performance, Efficiency, Standard, Unglazed, Mechanical
  • Utilization of Wood Ash from Rice Husks in Firebricks Production

    • Authors: Ali Vincent Egwu
      Abstract: This paper documents the results of the use of rice husk ash collected from selected parts of Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, Nigeria, as alternative source of silica and calcium oxide in firebricks body.  The experiment started with the use of rice husks as alternative to sawdust, which instead of burning off to create pores, produced a very weak brick that crumbled into a heap of clay and ash inside the kiln. In fact, all the formulated samples, yielded the same result, except those with less than 30% rice husks.  However, when burnt into ash and mixed with the same material (fireclay) as in the above set of experiments, resulted into a light, dense and hard refractory firebricks at 1250oC, which can be harnessed for use as outer-back up to insulatory bricks in kiln construction.  The process involves the extraction of the ash, selection of other materials to be combined with the ash, determination of the quantity of each material and firing at temperature of 1250oC.
  • Animal Imagery in the Apocalypse

    • Authors: Blaise Gundu GBADEN
      Abstract: The Renaissance was a fertile era for the rise of religious art mainly based on Biblical narratives from the Old and New testaments. Daunting imagery from the Book of Revelation (The Apocalypse) did not inspire the creation of many paintings. It was Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) and William Blake (1757-1827) who produced several Biblical truths largely concentrating on the apocalyptic vision. This profound book contains a rich corpus of animal symbols, which provide challenging archetypes for contemporary painters in Nigeria and elsewhere. These have been presented in this paper chronologically in a lexicon; possible interpretations and analysis of the dense motifs are offered as guide to contemporary Nigerian painters and those interested in pursuing the merits of sacred art. Secondary sources of data have essentially informed the prognosis in this paper.  The author acknowledges that this is an ongoing study and it is likely to be deepened when newer insights are gotten from further research. Keywords: God, Christ, Renaissance, Sacred Art, Apocalypse, Angels, Woman, Dragon, Sulphur, Beast
  • Understanding the Furniture Design Process in Ghana

    • Authors: Kennedy Newton Nutassey; Isaac Agyei-Boakye, Ebenezer Quayson
      Abstract: The transformation of information technology now make more employees transacting business indoors this make the use of furniture pieces for longer periods of time and demand complex furniture design. However, complexity could be solved if furniture pieces are well designed through well structured furniture designing process in Ghana. But, little attention is paid to it until just before it is needed. Design process in general is a link of actives involved in solving problems, creating something new, or transforming less desirable situations to preferred situations. To do this, the furniture designers must know how these process work and why. Understanding how furniture design process work and why it is important for furniture designers. This is the purpose of the study. The paper outlines a standard framework for furniture design process. These frameworks clarify the meaning of theory and outline the process. It explains the nature and uses of theory as a general concept to solve complex furniture designing problems. It proposes five potential stages which gives sufficient information for furniture design process, with typical examples. Keywords: furniture design process, understanding, complex, framework
  • Creative Arts Curriculum Development for Entrepreneurship Skills
           Acquisition at Tertiary Education Level in Nigeria

    • Authors: OGBOJI, B.A; EZEUGWU, J.O.
      Abstract: The study sought to identify the creative arts contents for entrepreneurship skills acquisition at tertiary education in Nigeria. Three research questions guided the study. The study adopted a descriptive survey design and the sample comprised of hundred (100) out of a population of one hundred and ninety six (196) students of the Department of Arts Education. The three sets of questionnaire instruments were validated by three experts. The instrument reliability coefficient was determined using Crombach Alpha which yielded 0.82. Questionnaire was used to generate data for the study and the data were analyzed using mean, standard deviations and weighted averages. Any mean that was below 2.50 was rejected. The result revealed that all the creative arts contents such as portrait painting, moulding in mass production process of two-dimensional, three-dimensional, percussion/instrumentation and theatrical aspects respectively are creative arts contents for entrepreneurship skills acquisition at tertiary education in Nigeria. The major problem was lack of creative arts programme in tertiary institutions in Nigeria. Recommendations were made on the basis of the findings of the study.
  • Nigerian Art: The Problem of Identity

    • Authors: Makinde; D.O, Aremu, P.S.O.
      Abstract: The tag “Nigerian art” has continued to generate ripples in the academia most especially among the art historian. Several attempts were made to define “Nigerian art” by foreign and indigenous writers before and after Nigeria independence in 1960 without an agreeable or workable definition. With the controversies still going on, the question now is who is qualified to label or define Nigeria art considering the submissions of these authors. This paper advocates for an acceptable and workable definition through a synthesis of ideas that will anchor on the consideration of the art, the producer and the birthplace of the art-works. The paper defines “Nigerian art” as “works of art produced by Nigerians in its purest form devoid of any foreign influence. Keywords: Nigerian, Art, Traditional, Contemporary, Representation, Visual, Aesthetics, Identity, Creativity.  
  • Sustainability of Ageing Hospital Environment through Revitalization of
           Landscape Design

    • Authors: Francis Osefoh; Obinna Ubani, Peter Agbonome
      Abstract: In early days, the concept of provision of healthcare facilities were borne out of needs only, but recently they are based on needs, eligibility and ability in carrying of socio-economic functions to the community- being environmental friendly, providing environmental psychological-therapy, adding value and attracting economic benefits. Healthcare providers are now aware of the new trends in ensuring sustainability– involving modifications in design programmes of infrastructure developments. Mother of Christ Specialist Hospital, Enugu, Nigeria, an aged-long healthcare facility in the country is a case study. Due to environmental dilapidation, degradation and neglect of the hospital as regards its age and present status in meeting the needs of environmental demands, the scenario portrays dehumanized environment - disorderly and untidy informal activities within the courtyards and surrounding open spaces; which possibly is putting people in the worst frame of mind. The study aims at a design of outdoor spaces that entails understanding the problems, and evolving solutions in respective areas- capturing human values, creation of comfortable and familiar environment that people can enjoy. The proposal was achieved by making the design solution valid for all groups involved- stemming the design goals from analysis of the needs ,desires and values of the would be users by adopting problem oriented-approach, and applying  unobtrusive measures in conjunction with other methods. The forms of each courtyards and surrounding open spaces within the buildings and beyond with their informal activities generated the form of the landscape design solution; resulting in the setup of consistent aesthetic and plan form of which their requirements fell happily into freer forms which were not forced. Thus, the design presents inviting, welcoming and cheerful scenario that people can go or stay as they wish. Keywords: Sustainability, Ageing, Hospital, Revitalization and Landscape Design.
  • Design Innovation Paradigm and Patterns of Family Cars

    • Authors: Yannes Martinus Pasaribu; Agus Sachari, Togar Mangihut Simatupang
      Abstract: Innovation plays an important role in product design development that would respond to the user’s needs. However, users’ perspective on innovation is influenced by the values that grow in a society. The changes in society values have influenced the users’ perspective towards the innovation of the car. This situation leads to gaps between how designers think about the innovation and what the users’ needs of the car innovation design are. Thus, this study intends to compare the differences between the designers and users’ perspective on the innovation of the Indonesian car industry. The study focused on the design of the four top-selling cars in Indonesia, namely: Toyota Innova, Toyota Avanza, Suzuki APV and Nissan Grand from the year 1998 to 2012. The survey was conducted by distributing 303 questionnaires from June 10 to June 16, 2013 to a virtual community at, one of Indonesia’s well known automotive websites. Then, questionnaires were distributed and interviews were conducted about the characteristics of product design innovation in several automotive industries, namely: Toyota, on December 1 and March 21, 2013; Daihatsu, on March 18, 2013, Suzuki on April 16, 2013; and Nissan, on May 1, 2013 and May 16, 2013. Furthermore, the data compiled from the industry and the public respondents were processed using the non-parametric Mann-Whitney test and Wilcoxon W. This nonparametric test was performed on two independent samples to determine similarities and differences in the values ??of certain variables between the two groups tested. The results show that the designers and users tend to perceive car innovation as being part of the incremental innovation category. The innovation gaps were found in the attributes of the orientation of innovation and the product’s platform. However, the slight difference indicates that users tend to look at the design innovation as a differentiator and a novelty marker for cars they would purchase. Keywords: incremental innovation, radical innovation, design driven innovation, designer perception, user perception, family car, design innovation.
  • Aesthetic and Utilitarian Considerations in Design Evaluation for Theatre

    • Authors: Esekong H. Andrew
      Abstract: This study proposes a few parameters for assessing designs for theatrical productions. As a background, it reviews the traditional functions of members of the theatrical design team and goes further to examine the technicalities of assessment of the arts via the elements of design and the principles of composition. The study takes a cursory look at conformity to aesthetic cannons, functionality of design, applicability of design to production and precision in script interpretation as the major parameters for assessment of design products for the theatre. In view of the place of the audience as a principal component of the theatre ensemble, the role of the audience as evaluator is also examined. The study concludes that design review and evaluation are necessary to ensure proficiency in theatre productions. Keywords: Aesthetics, Utilitarian Considerations, Design Evaluation, Theatre Productions
  • The Contribution of Higher National Diploma (HND) Furniture Graduates in
           the Furniture Industry in Ghana

    • Authors: Kennedy Newton Nutassey; Ebenezer Quayson, Isaac Agyei-Boakye
      Abstract: The Furniture industry in Ghana indentified greater importance in HND furniture graduate. However, the expectations of the furniture companies have fall shortened by inefficient delivery of skills and technology by the HND furniture graduates. The HND furniture graduates acquired highest knowledge and skills to facilitate design and production of furniture pieces. The furniture industries in Ghana have devious ways of production of items for indoor and outdoor without specific standards practice and procedures. The aim is to access and analyze the credibility of HND furniture graduate, and the expectation of furniture industry in Ghana. The HND furniture graduates in Ghana have lost focus, and interest to associate with the furniture companies. The furniture industry lack middle level manpower, insufficient ideals, skills and technology to wheel expectation of the industries to meet customer satisfaction. Keywords: furniture industry, HND furniture graduate, performance, furniture companies
