Janet’s Harmony, A Bronze Wind Chime Tree Sculpture Honoring Janet Tobias and Her Harmony Park

Description

Honoring a beloved friend and Principal, with a wind chime plumeria tree; is more than a mere Barrett Honor’s thesis—research and development turned into therapy for my grief. Janet Tobias, former principal of Kyrene De La Paloma Elementary School,

Honoring a beloved friend and Principal, with a wind chime plumeria tree; is more than a mere Barrett Honor’s thesis—research and development turned into therapy for my grief. Janet Tobias, former principal of Kyrene De La Paloma Elementary School, had a mission of creating a musical park for children. Upon her recent and sudden death, I decided to focus my energy into honoring her with a musical sculpture. However, this sculpture must be exceptional, research and development of such a one must culminate in a sculpture that will not only last generations but feed the musical soul while increasing phantasia.

“Why We Vote” explores attitudes and rationales among college students regarding civic and voter engagement. The major tangible outcome of this project is a photo series displaying portraits of students paired with a short vignette about their voting or civic engagement story. To diversify the series, we have engaged participants from a broad range of personal identities and civic engagement levels. We want to give visibility to the experiences of those who are commonly cast aside, especially in regard to civic and voting initiatives. Our project utilizes personal storytelling to spark dialogue about civic engagement,
particularly among the 18-24 age demographic. We chose to use storytelling as the primary medium for our project because it is a vehicle for empathy, a lacking component of modern civic life in the United States. It provokes students to think critically about how and why they engage in civic life and connect campus communities of students with common experiences. We are interested to see how our presence on campuses impacts the level and nature of their civic dialogue and how our findings are situated within our quantitative research.

Building on research on family communication and forgiveness, this study seeks to understand how families communicate the value and practice of forgiveness. Through semi-structured interviews, the study asks participants to recall their formative conversations and experiences about forgiveness with their family members and to discuss how those conversations influenced their current perspectives on forgiveness. Interviews from five female undergraduate students yielded seven main themes from where individuals learn how to forgive: 1) Sibling conflicts, 2) Family conversations about friendship conflicts, 3) Conversations with Mom, 4) Living by example, 5) Take the high road, 6) “Life’s too short”, and 7) Messages rooted in faith and morality.
