Are we conscious collectors of our material world or unconscious consumers of meaningless things? Elizabeth Chase @chase_elizabethw shares her profound research based on cognitive associations in design examining how we interact with objects in the 21st century--when procuring things happens at the touch of a button. #designanddiscourse @gwmuseum #design #dadh #gradschool #decarts #textilemuseum #cognitive #consciousdesign

This amazing Chalice in the @ngadc's collection belonged to the Abbot Suger of Saint-Denis. While the cup itself dates to the 2nd/1st century BC, Abbot Suger had goldsmiths set the cup in gilded silver and decorate it with gems and pearls for use in the Mass #admiringart #dcarts #nga #decorativearts #frenchdecoration

DADH professor Erin Kuykendall and students gather outside the rear entrance to President James Monroe's guest house at Highland, outside Charlottesville, Virginia. Dendrochronology,  archaeology and a reexamination of the documentary record have definitively concluded this building - long interpreted as a wing to Monroe's original home from 1799 - was actually built in 1818 by two enslaved carpenters, Peter Mallory and George, as separate guest quarters for visiting dignitaries during Monroe's Presidency #historichomes #virginiahistory #history #architecturalhistory #design #preservation #highland #presidentialhistory #interiors
