           in order to Raise Environmental Awareness

    • Authors: Pasutt Kanrattanasutra
      Pages: 12 - 51
      Abstract: The creation of art from metal waste with participation of young volunteers in order to raise environmental awareness aims to: 1) study the context of waste materials from industries, establishments, and shops, as well as environmental issues related to waste materials at the Ladkrabang Industrial Estate, Bangkok; 2) create contemporary art by synthesizing the knowledge of metal waste at the Ladkrabang Industrial Estate, Bangkok that entails inspiration and way to produce contemporary art to be aesthetic medium to raise awareness of the environmental problem; 3) give an opportunity for volunteer or community to participate in establishing a masterpiece and gain knowledge of the waste material. This research project contains the substances, perspectives, and concepts of the artists and designers regardless of the document-based research related to Conceptual art. This art makes activity and thought of relational art pertaining to the relationship between the “time,” which destroys the dividing lines of life and art. It emphasizes the process of viewers’ participation in the activity and the modification of space from the artistic to safe space and VDO documentary art which is a video recording real events or demonstrating a creative social environment known as a creative practice in the real thing. This practice displays through animation and the process of communicating reality via creative activities. The activity linking with art emphasizes the performing process more than the result, responds to the desire of social or community involvement. This project (that explores and aims to create innovative materials and new sustainable systems) pays attention to waste materials of beverage cans re-melted from the worthless to the liquid aluminum. Its fine materials can be further applied to create artwork through an artistic exchange of volunteers or the community.

    • Authors: Saranyaphach Jitpilai
      Pages: 88 - 110

This study aimed to (1) study the identities of Phupapoh in Phawhai community, Nong Hin District, Loey province, (2) create and develop graphic design on T-Shirts that reflect the identities of Phupapoh in Phawhai community, Nong Hin District, Loey province and (3) survey satisfaction levels of the graphic designs on the T-shirts. The study used two groups of people to collect the data. The first group was a group of ten from purposive sampling, which can provide academic knowledge comprising of three academicians, one leader of the community, three villagers, and three souvenir shopkeepers. The second group was 100 tourists from accidental sampling.

The research found that identities of Phupapoh were wooden swings, a Phuhoh mountain, Sea of mist, a field of tree marigold or Maxican sunflower, resting pavilions along the scenic route, the Phapoh mountain itself, and E-Tak carriages. According to the survey from the first group, high satisfaction was shown towards the identical graphic design on the T-shirts that were sold as a souvenir. Survey results from the 100 tourists showed that their gratifications toward the graphic designs on the T-shirts were extremely high, and the number nine graphic art was the most popular.

  • Bowling in the garden

    • Authors: Udom Chimpukdee
      Pages: 111 - 139
      Abstract: Bowling in the garden is the result of research on creating interactive art or Relational art/Relational Aesthetics that has brought a new process into games that do not have a set of pre-defined rules such as in sports. The rules are defined jointly between the creative researcher and the visitors of the work in each group for the experiences, joyfulness, and cordiality. The Relationship of people in today’s society is changing because of technology in this digital era, with people spending most of the time with electronic gadgets, being engaged with online presence, primarily online media. Hence, outdoor activities are becoming increasingly uncommon in today’s society. The bowling ball is a simple activity used as a medium to forge friendship and relationship. The rules are not complicated and most of the participants can come up with their own rules. The goal is to encourage participation. The arbitrary rules that vary according to the group of participants are part of the work in accordance with the objective of participation in creative art. The Creative researcher creates the work together with the participants of the interactive art. The visitors are able to participate in the work through the interaction with the bowling and garden as medium. This creates a conversation which contributes to a healthy mind, body and relieve participants from fatigue accumulated from routine work or main work in daily life. The Merging point between two different sciences in the context of application in society is the intersecting world between the arts and sports. This results in an overall benefit of generosity, compassion, and love for unity among the participants in the organized activities and the audience that is interested in participating in the activities of the new branch of contemporary art called “related aesthetics or interacting aesthetics”. The Beauty of the work is seen in the joy of the participants in the ‘Bowling in the garden’ found on their facial expressions and through the gestures in which the participants must “create meaning” and “interpret” the art by him/herself. The artwork is experienced and the meaning is acquired at the end of the participation in the activity.

  • Khruba Srivichai Monument at the Foothill Doi Suthep Chiang Mai: The
           Closure of the Legend of Miracles Surrounding The Monk’s Holy
           Proclamation

    • Authors: Krisana Honguten
      Pages: 223 - 256
      Abstract: Although the Kruba Srivichai Monument, located at the foothill Doi Suthep Chiang Mai, was constructed with funds from the Chiang Mai provincial budget, it was closely tied to the great faith and reverence of the Lanna people towards the holy monk who was called the “Saint of the Lanna Thai”. The study of the biography of Pra Kruba Srivichai, the great developer and most influential monk of the era, has revealed the immense faith and respect of the Lanna people towards him, which explains why all of his countless public construction and renovation works were easily completed without any hindrances. Additionally, the study of the history of the Kruba Srivichai monument construction, which took seven years to be completed, has enabled us to conclude that the Kruba Srivichai bronze statue was built during 1956-1958. Moreover, the Kruba Srivichai Monument was found to have been designed and the head of the statue sculpted by Professor Silpa Bhirasri whereas the body had been sculpted by Khien Yimsiri. Most importantly, documentary evidence has shown the important empirical evidence that could refute the myths of the miracles involving the monk’s holy proclamation that “As long as the River Ping does not flow back north, I shall not step on the land of Chiang Mai again”. The legend about the holy proclamation was somehow linked to the inauguration of Bhumibol Dam through the irrational claim involving the return of the Kruba to Chiang Mai and the official opening of the dam. Specifically, it was rumored that on May 17, 1964 which marked the state opening of Bhumibol dam, the River Ping had overflown the dam and flown up to the north as far as the Hod District of Chiang Mai, thus enabling the bronze statue to be successfully erected in Chiang Mai on the same day. According to the documentary evidence, however, the statue of Kruba Srivichai was established at the foothill Doi Suthep on June 8, 1963. This finding, therefore, is a fact that can be considered as the closure of the previously mentioned legend of the miracles surrounding the holy proclamation.
