W16 Peplin - SAC 376 - New Media Theory

History of new media

This vertical print shows a slick advertising image in the top half with a man and a woman watching an early model television set. The woman is smoking a cigarette. A text box is inserted asking three questions. The bottom half is less slick, simply a diagram and text, some of it in a typewriter font. Text above and below asks about how soon television sets will be widely available in homes and museums. The date 1944 is included in parentheses at the top of the image.

This colorful print is broken up in to four panels, which are divided by a black border with white dashes and then surrounded by a red border, which includes designs in white. In the upper left panel is the image of a blue and yellow house. The upper right shows a television set sitting on a table alongside a glass of milk, a key ring, notepad, plate, and cell phone. In the lower left panel, the bust of a girl with blonde hair in pig-tail braids is standing in front of two houses, one traditional and one modern. The lower right panel depicts an orange, yellow, and red store labeled "Shop and Buy" with a parking lot out front. The artist's initals are included in the print (l.r.) in white on red "RG".

This color screenprint is separated into two main parts. At the top is a frame made out of unwrapped candy and wrapped candy bars with an image of a man flexing his arm, while a bikini-clad woman peeks from behind the bicep in the frame. The bottom half of the image has two blue and red stars, one on top of the other at the right, and a television to the left. The television has a handle at the top, with an arm coming from the upper candy-frame to hold the handle, and on the screen is a large moth on a red background.

Gift of Frances and Sydney Lewis
This photolithographic print in shades of blue and rusty red is separated into three main registers. There are three television screens at the top, each with a different image: from left to right, a woman putting on her earrings as a man looks on, an American football game, and an image of a man in a suit from the chest up with the text Dr. Walter W. Heller. Below these images, there is a register with a grid of squares within squares with two large rectangular boundries; at the far right, two larger squares are stacked vertically. The bottom register of images shows a contemporary domestic kitchen, the colors of which are transected in two places, and, in the foreground, an oversized image of a female hand holding a sandwich and a fork with salad attached.

Gift of Gilbert M. Frimet
In this mixed-media print, there is a white background with black outlines of facial features, lips and an eye, and a creature in the bottom left. In the upper left corner there is a rectanglular sheet in cream layered on top; a wavy vertical design stretches diagonally from the top of the rectangle to the bottom in yellow, red, and blue. Within this sheet, there are small figures at the center left drawn in black. To the right in the sheet, there is a collaged image of one of the artist's paintings, incorporated into a cube. Above, there are drawn birds. There is a small mechanical-like figure on the sheet at the bottom left. At the center of the print, in the cream page, the artist signed "Dali" and dated the print "1975. To the bottom left, on the larger white page, there is text inscribed in the plate, mirrored and someone illegible, that possibly reads "Leill Ciclopeer Alucire la bouche Almient tire / Lula [illegible]." The print is number at the lower left in pencil.
