  • The Effect of Fabrics and Designs on the Physical Comfort of Children
           Clothes in the Accra Metropolis

    • Authors: Rose Dogbey; Mercy Kuma Kpobee, Victor Dedume, Joseph Osei
      Abstract: Safety and comfort are considered as top priority when selecting fabrics for manufacturing children’s apparels. Delicate skin of children reacts to certain fabrics which make them less comfortable to wear. The study aimed at examining the effects of fabrics and designs on the physical comfort of children clothes. The study adopted a descriptive study design. A total of 100 respondents, 30 fashion designers and 70 parents and guardians, were sampled for the study. Simple random sampling was used for the fashion designers, whereas accidental sampling was used for the parents and guardians. Descriptive statistics such as frequencies and percentages were used to analyse the data. Crosstabulations were also used to examine the relationship between variables. The study found that more parents considered the appearance of their children before other factors such as safety and comfortability. However, majority preferred cotton fabrics to be used for their children’s apparels. A majority of the fashion designers did not know that children’s skin reacts to certain fabrics. The main factors considered by the fashion designers in the selection of fabrics for constructing children’s apparels were colour, design, and purpose of apparels. The majority of the fashion designers adopted a number of safety measures, such as linen of apparel, light-weighted zippers and use of few buttons, to enhance the comfortability of children’s apparel. The study recommends that the NVTI, and the Ghana Fashion Designers Association should educate fashion designers on the reaction of children’s skin to fabrics from certain sources. The NVTI in collaboration with the Fashion Designers Association of Ghana should sensitise or train fashion designers on safety measures in apparel making through improved finishes. Keywords: fabrics, designs, safety, comfort, children, clothes, apparels
  • The Impact of Pan-Africanism and Nationalism on the Evolution of Modern
           Art in Nigeria

    • Authors: Ademuleya Babasehinde Augustine
      Abstract: The paper examines the political and philosophical ideologies of the Pan-Africanism and Nationalism movements and their impact on the 20th century art of Africa with a particular reference to Nigeria. It opines that, while the foundation of modern arts in African could largely be attributed to Africans’ embrace of Western education and life style, the African and Black descents’ concept of Pan-Africanism and Nationalism (home and abroad) which fuelled the young African elites’ renewed appreciation of interest in African culture and quest for African identity, also stimulated and fed the pre/post independent visual arts. The paper argues that the African nationalists’ agitation for political freedom from colonial powers within the continent and that of Africans in Diaspora’s struggle for liberation in the West and Europe which provoked the political vibes of the 1950s and 60s was indeed instrumental to the radical invigoration of the evolving modern visual arts of the continent in general and that of Nigeria in particular.  It submits that the Pan-Africanism and Nationalism movements’ ideals actually midwife the ‘Zarianist’ revolution and the reinvention of the concept of synthesis as evident in the Zaria Society of Art’s natural synthesis theory as well as the post independent’s emergence of art movements and stylistic art schools. Keywords: Africa, Nationalism, Modern Nigerian art, Pan-Africanism, Visual Arts 
  • Image-Bearing Role of Dome in Traditional and Modern Arabic Architecture

    • Authors: Wail Houssin; Yulia Zhmurko
      Abstract: The article deals with the problem of image-bearing nature of Arabic architecture that is realized through symbolic dome’s form. The dome is one of the most informative forms in the world culture including universal images within the national pecularities. Practicing dome forms for the constructions of social importance and for the constructions presenting predominant ideology proves their universal image-bearing nature and their symbolic archetypical background. In Arabic architecture the dome form belongs to the forms molding mega-images. Metaphorically creating a shroud the dome specifically symbolizes broad expanse of heaven. It has a great attracting power fixing the center, creating the vertical that joins all the levels of the Universe into one integral whole. In modern architecture the dome, even adopting new forms which correspond advanced technologies, preserves its image-bearing qualities. Keywords: dome, image, symbol, mosque, Arabic architecture

  • The Role of Television in Sports Development in Nigeria

    • Authors: Elo Ibagere
      Abstract: Sports as a collected term, represents one important area of national life which most nations of the world continue to emphasize. Such countries use it to project their image. Flowing from this fact, there is, therefore, the need to develop the area as a way of integrating a country into the global nexus. Sports development involves the mass media which contribute to this development in a number of ways. This paper focuses, particularly on Nigerian television and its role in sports development in Nigeria. The paper finds that the medium has failed to adequately perform its role in this regard. The paper thus suggests a new role for Nigerian television and suggests ways of performing this role. Keywords: sports, development, television.

  • Subjectivity in Miracle Aesthetic Clinic Ambient Media Advertisement

    • Authors: Wegig Murwonugroho; dan Agung EBW
      Abstract: Subjectivity in advertisement is a ‘power’ possessed by advertisements to construct trend, concept, truth, and ideology through subconscious mind. Advertisements, in performing their functions as message conveyors, use such visual representation as metaphors bridging imagination and reality. Ambient media is advertising medium making the best use of the environment where the advertisement is located. Miracle Aesthetic Clinic (Miracle) popularizes the visual representation of its ambient media advertisement through the omission of face-image of both female mannequins that function as its ambient media models. The face of a model in advertisement is an image commodity having selling values; however, the faces of ambient media models in Miracle advertisement campaign are suppressed over the table and wall. This face concealing aspect creates not only a paradox of subjectivity but also plurality of meaning. This research applies critical discourse analysis method to analyze subjectivity in obtaining the insight of ambient media’s meaning. First, in the stage of textual analysis, the embedding attributes upon female mannequins imply that the models are denoted as the representation of modern women, which are identical with the identities of their social milieus. The communication signs aimed to be constructed are the women who lose their subjectivities and ‘feel embarrassed’ to flaunt their faces to the public because of pimples on their faces. Second, in the stage of analysis of discourse practice, it points out that ambient media as communication media has been comprehensively responded by the targeted audiences. Ambient media has a role as an actor because of its eyes-catching setting, and taking space over the area where the public are wandering around. Indeed, when the public realize that the ambient media models are motionless – unlike human –stronger relation then appears, marked by several responses from targeted audiences. Third, in the stage of analysis of social practice, the myth of female ghost becomes a dominant discourse influencing advertisement meaning. The subjectivity of Miracle Advertisement corners women by the absence of women participation in public space, the representation of women in isolation, and the portrayal of women as horrible creature in the social rank when their faces suffered from pimples. The Ambient media as the advertisement campaign of Miracle is quite success in constructing a new trend discourse of face beauty that is not limited on benchmarks of common beauty virtues, but the idea of beauty can be presented by unblemished face. Keywords: ambient media, subjectivity, power, myth.
  • The Possibilities of Converting Akan Totems into Textile Designs for
           Ceremonial Cloths:A Means for Checking the Abuse of Totems in Ghana

    • Authors: Thomas Obenge Asare; Abdul Fatahi Ibrahim, Moshie Dayan Ahiamenyo
      Abstract: In the Ghanaian societies, totems are represented by either plant or animals, sculptural work, landscape or even a mythical entity revered by members of that particular social group. These  serve as an emblem of a particular family or a clan and often as a reminder of their ancestry and protection. In Ghana, almost every traditional ruler, chief or king has a totem. Many wildlife species are regarded as totems due to their historical or socio-cultural significance, however, they are seriously abused by hunters and other human activities. This study seeks to find out the possibilities of converting some selected totems from the Akans into textile designs  for cloths to be used during festive occasions as a means of education. This sensitizes the societies and  the  traditional rulers on the disappearance of those plants and animals  and the need to preserve the remaining few. As an art-studio based  practice, the study employs manual sketches of selected totems among the Asante and Kwehu clans  using pencils and Adobe Photoshop CS3,computer graphics software as the main  design tools. The study was based on qualitative research approach which made use of the art-studio practice and descriptive observational method of research. Purposive sampling technique was used to gather data from clan heads, people from centre for national Culture, lecturers from KNUST and Kumasi polytechnic,  students from KNUST and Kumasi polytechnic, textile retailers and  textile artists within Kumasi metropolis to establish the conceptual background for the study. Observation and unstructured interview guides were the main instruments used for data collection. The study concluded that converting totems into  textile design for ceremonial cloth was paramount to understanding of their importance and easily educate  the general public their philosophical and economic ideals. Keywords: totems, cloth, textile  design, ceremony, philosophy, communication
  • Professional Art Aspiration and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) Saga

    • Authors: Onyema Emeni
      Abstract: The discourse on Professional Art Aspiration and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) Saga though robust has hardly considered alternatives in attempts to locate a meeting point for the professional. The point to ponder is that research which creates new knowledge is not the same in all disciplines in the University system. The creative arts fall into disciplines where sole focus on research is distant. Its products rather help in the creation of new knowledge based disciplines, where sole focus on research based disciplines, therefore this paper set out to look at the contending issues that under gird the directive of the National Universities Commission (N.U.C) as regards mandatory attainment of the Doctor of Philosophy Degrees, and re-echoes Sir. Joshua Raynolds often quoted resentment to such demands that “art dies in the arid excesses of reasoning”. Hence the National Universities Commission (N.U.C’s) position requires reconsideration. I dwelled on the implementation of the idea of the new university and its imperative that tertiary education teachers earn a Ph.D to be relevant in such institutions. The idea of pursuing a Ph.D is not bad in its self. What my worry has been and remains is the way it is being pursued in Nigeria. What is happening in the universities currently appear untidy. And I think that if we are to make progress academically, a new orientation is needed in pursuing the Ph.D degree. What is then needed is studio doctoral that discuss relevant theories that help art practice. Even degrees in Art History and Art Education can be distractions. This is because they presuppose that one is an art historian, when in fact the candidate who earned the degree lacks requisite founding in the discipline. I look forward to a proper studio Ph.D whose ramifications in its development and maturity is guided and not to leave universities to structure what they want in the name of Ph.D
