  • A Study of Housing and Identity in Northern Cyprus

    • Authors: Mohammad Borzooeian
      Abstract: This research mainly focuses on the relationship between environment and people’s identity by centralization of communicative aspects of residential environments. There is this potential to find out the dwellers’ identity, and this is where we come to the confluence of housing and identity. Therefore, it is significant to find out the residents’ attitudes considering their residences. The concept that enables individuals to retain their routines, costumes, habits and memories makes the focus of “housing and identity” a crucial and feasible research subject. The case studies are selected among high-quality and low-quality neighborhoods in Kaliland zone in Gazima?usa, one of the five districts of Northern Cyprus. In this survey questionnaires are used in order to explore residents’ interests, personality and relationships. This research is done based on the principles of home identity, communicating identity and self-perception. Consequently, the significant aspects in creating home identity will be discussed, and finally, the research will conclude the key role of memory, personal features and backgrounds in defining identity. Keywords: Housing, Dwelling, Identity, Residential Environment
  • Art Exhibition as Advert Promo and Facilitator for Artistic Production in
           Colleges and Universities

    • Authors: Godwin Ogheneruemu Irivwieri arpa
      Abstract: This paper presents Art Exhibition as an Advertising medium for the sale of artworks apart from its aesthetic and entertainment value to which it is often been put in contemporary society. It is however observed that a number of budding artists in colleges and universities and even a number of professional artists scarcely know the skills involved, the chemistry and what it takes to undertake a major and successful exhibition that could possibly bring them to limelight. It is on this backdrop that the writer seeks to showcase Art Exhibition as a veritable medium in the educational setting particularly for students in the visual arts scene and practicing artists in society to eke a living from the business of Art Exhibition, particularly, during this period of global economic recession. Through a review of a number of literatures and personal involvement in this unique subject matter, a number of issues were discussed and highlighted. They include, what Art Exhibition means, the social perspectives of Curating Art Shows, and the Conventional Art Exhibition Format. Others are Art Gallery/Studio Operations, Preservation Issues of Exhibited Art works and the Facilities for the Art Studio that will create enabling environment for optimal artistic production. It is found out that Art Exhibition demands constant planning, thinking, dreaming, organizing, adapting, researching, experimenting, motivating, evaluating and resource-building. It is thus a marketing tool for the exposition of the works of art in society. Keywords: Art Exhibition, Advertising, facilitator, Artistic Production, Marketing tool, Preservation.
  • Selective Determinants of Advertisement Appeal for a Product or Service

    • Authors: Godwin Ogheneruemu Irivwieri arpa
      Abstract: The study establishes the intrinsic role of advertising appeal to both the prospect and the Advertiser, in determining the volume of sales of products, service or idea. With the increasing number of substitutes (products) in the economy, the level of competition among emerging industries and organizations is high. Hence there is the need to exploit those unique selling points that motivate the desire to acquire the products from which benefits will be derived.  This tasks the intellect of the graphic designer and copywriters in the advertising industry. A number of literatures bothering on the unique selling point, classification of advertising appeals and the relationship with the other elements in advertising were reviewed and analyzed. Through a survey of a number of  goods and services, coupled with interviews from prospects and organizations, it is found that gender, social status and materialism have significant relationship with purchasing behaviour. They engender  ad appeal that could lead consumer to have positive attitude towards brand, higher purchase intention and brand choice, generates and maintains loyalty, and thus serve as a strong raison d’etre for patronage. Keywords: Appeal, Talking point, target audience, determinants, Advertisement, Choice
  • The Decline of Ghana’s Textile Industry: Its effects on Textile
           Education in Ghana

    • Authors: Eric Bruce-Amartey Jnr; Emmanuel Rexford Kodwo Amissah, Kweku Safo-Ankama
      Abstract: There has been persistent, drastic decline of the Textile Industry in Ghana which is affecting the study of textiles in Ghanaian Textiles education institutions. Upon this foundation, the study seeks to examine and discuss the impact of the decline of Ghana’s textile industry on textiles education in Ghana. The population for the study consisted of students, lecturers and heads of departments of selected textiles education institutions in Ghana as well as operatives in Ghana’s textile factories. The methodology employed was the qualitative approach and the descriptive survey. Observation and interviews were the research instruments used to gather data. Some findings were that, of excessive influx of textile products from foreign countries, exorbitant utility cost affecting production, intellectual dishonesty on the part of foreign textile producers and obsolete technology by local textile manufacturers. This has also contributed adversely to the reduction of the intake of textile students in textile education institutions. The study recommends among others that the government of Ghana invests massively in the local textile industry by giving bailouts for the acquisition of new machinery, human resource and manpower development. Again efforts should be made for the provision of equipment and logistics to enhance teaching to make the textiles graduate marketable. Key words: textile industry, textile education, imports, exports, decline and obsolete
  • Place Attachment in Primary Schools

    • Authors: Mohammad Borzooeian
      Abstract: Psychology scholars consider school design as an effective educational parameter in students’ learning ability. As a live and dynamic factor, it may significantly influence the quality of students’ educational performance. Although educational spaces are very influential in learning, this is not enough singly considering the qualitative dimensions of educational spaces. Yet, educational spaces and especially schools are among the most influential environments regarding human personality development. Having sense of belonging to a place is a significant qualitative criterion which guarantees durability of that place. In practical design, places which can create sense of attachment in students make them pleased and help them to stay at the place satisfactorily. In this article the main focus is ‘place attachment’. It was an effort to find solutions for creating and increasing this emotional bond between school children and the educational space through design. Since the context of this research was Shiraz city in Iran, it is necessary to consider that in this country male and female students are segregated in schools from early years of education. Therefore, it was necessary to pay attention to specific conditions of Persian culture and Islamic traditions and attitudes. According to observations I had in a number of well-known primary schools of the city, most of these schools suffer from lack of architectural quality and educational equipment. Another problem is failure to meet design standards and principles. Duo to such problems, we may ask; how can place attachment be created in such environments? How can students become interested in school and learning under these conditions? And, what is required to make school more attractive and interesting? Therefore, we need to have a responsive space. But what features should this ‘responsive space’ have? As a result, focusing on place attachment as a potential way is one of the most significant solutions. Keywords: Architecture, Primary school, Place attachment

Key words: Painting under glass, Folk art, Spontaneity
  • Traditional Ingenuity in Ghanaian Atumpan Drum Construction (From Locally
           Obtainable ‘Cordia Millenii’)

    • Authors: Agbeyewornu Kofi Kemevor
      Abstract: The forest abounds in different species of trees that the African wood carver capitalizes on to make artefacts. Design and construction of drums particularly in the form of wood art has been in existence for so many years. The purpose of this article is to highlight on the design of traditional carving of Atumpan drum as an excellent art work; As an artwork, its nature, design elements and production process have been discussed. The selection of appropriate wood and design motifs for production and their symbolism have also been considered. Descriptive research method based on the qualitative research approach was employed. This study shows an important distinction between the seeing, viewing, and liking of a specific piece of art and lack of understanding. The investigation of creativeness in the art requires some theoretical originality to enable the development of an effective research method capable of subtly reporting upon original artistic activity. The study states that traditional methods and approaches of Atumpan drum carving must be revived in order to give room for creativity which is indispensable for any development to happen. Key words: Drum, Atumpan drum, Body measurement, Carving, Art forms, Classical, Creativity.
