Mayuka Thais Fine Arts
Mayuka Thais ('07 Fine Arts) This artist/singer/songwriter created paintings as well as a music video for her senior thesis. Her work reflects a dedication and lifelong interest in elephants and animal rights by combining childhood photos of pachyderm playmates with documentary footage of the L.A. Zoo' elephant, Billy. Her lyrics and melodies express the inevitable onset of neurosis on captive animals, presenting a plea for freedom and personal responsibility.
Devin Week Product Design
Devin Week ('10 Product Design) For Devin Week, an Otis class held on the verdant lawn beside the Ben Maltz Gallery nurtured a growing creativity and environmental consciousness. In Materials and Methods/Green Design, he designed and crafted a surfboard of 100% wood, without resins or fiberglass, as well as functional community benches from discarded books.
