An engaging exploration of the relationship between avant-garde art and American network television from the 1940s through the 1970s The aesthetics and concepts of modern art have influenced American television ever since its inception in the 1930s. In return, early television introduced the public to the latest trends in art and design. This engaging catalogue comprehensively examines the way avant-garde art shaped the look and content of network television in its formative years, from the 1940s through the mid-1970s. It also addresses the larger cultural and social context of television. Artists, fascinated with the new medium and its technological possibilities, contributed to network programs and design campaigns, appeared on television to promote modern art, and explored, critiqued, or absorbed the new medium in their work. More than 150 illustrations reveal both sides of the dialogue between high art and television through a selection of graphic designs, ephemera, and stills from important television programs--from The Twilight Zone to Batman to Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, and more--as well as works by artists including Salvador Dalí, Lee Friedlander, Agnes Martin, Man Ray, Andy Warhol, and many others. Revolution of the Eye uncovers the cultural history of a medium whose powerful influence on our lives remains pervasive.

Among the enduring stereotypes of early American history has been the colonial Goodwife, perpetually spinning, sewing, darning, and quilting, answering all of her family's textile needs. But the Goodwife of popular historical imagination obscures as much as she reveals; the icon appears to explain early American women's labor history, while at the same time allowing it to go unexplained. Tensions of class and gender recede, and the largest artisanal trade open to early American women is obscured in the guise of domesticity. In this book, Marla R. Miller illuminates the significance of women's work in the clothing trades of the early Republic. Drawing on diaries, reminiscences, letters, ledgers, and material culture, she explores the contours of working women's lives in rural New England, offering a nuanced view of their varied ranks and roles - skilled and unskilled, black and white, artisanal and laboring - as producers and consumers, clients and crafts-women, employers and employees

How the revolution of laser surgery has unshackled the human eye Of the five senses, vision is the most astonishing. This is how we weave our way through the world. And although the eye has evolved over millions of years to give us crystal clear vision, it is a modern day phenomenon that, in evolutionary terms, our eyesight is going backwards. Due to presbyopia, we are now dependent on reading glasses for half our lives. In parts of East Asia up to 90% of school leavers are now short-sighted. This has been attributed to work, study and lifestyle factors as well as the ageing of the population. And whilst we all know there have been some amazing advances in modern medicine, what seems to have escaped everyone's attention is the revolution that has taken place in laser eye surgery. Two gifted Australian surgeons, Professor Gerard Sutton and Dr Michael Lawless, now recognised as being among the best ophthalmologists in the world in their field, were there from the beginning of this revolution. From London to New York, New Orleans and Bogota they worked side by side with the legendary pioneers of eye surgery creating history as it happened. Sutton and Lawless have written this informative, authoritative and entertaining insight into laser vision correction and what it means for you. It's all here in The Naked Eye, an easy-to-read and jargon-free account of everything you ever wanted to know about laser eye surgery. They explain everything from 20/20 vision to the magic of the femtosecond laser. They pull apart myths, tell you some of the fascinating history of the science, and give you all you need to know on the latest surgical procedures. This is the story of the revolution of vision correction surgery - how we can now choose a surgical solution to give us a clearer vision with the naked eye.

In The Vision Revolution, Mark Changizi, prominent neuroscientist and vision expert, addresses four areas of human vision and provides explanations for why we have those particular abilities, complete with a number of full-color illustrations to demonstrate his conclusions and to engage the reader. Written for both the casual reader and the science buff hungry for new information, The Vision Revolution is a resource that dispels commonly believed perceptions about sight and offers answers drawn from the field’s most recent research. Changizi focuses on four “why” questions: 1. Why do we see in color? 2. Why do our eyes face forward? 3. Why do we see illusions? 4. Why does reading come so naturally to us? The Vision Revolution explores phenomena such as cyclopses, peeking and many more you hadn’t even thought to wonder about. Changizi shows how deeply involved these evolutionary aspects of our vision are in why we see the way we do—and what the future holds for us. The Vision Revolution is a book that finally gives attention to what before has been largely neglected by other works on human vision—a book that looks at the “why.”
