  • An exercise in perception

    Clairmont, Philip A (1970)

    Undergraduate thesis
    University of Canterbury Library

    The Subject chosen for this thesis is the interior of a room and its myriad aspects. When experienced subjectively it can appear as an outer protection or barrier for inner turmoil, providing security, shelter and privacy, or the direct opposite, four walls unnaturally imprisoning that which should be free. Objectively it provides a startling array of forms shapes and textures, both functional and nonfunctional, rigid and organic. The visual tensions influence and condition the actions and thoughts of the human figure within this environment. A room contains within its four walls residue of human thoughts, actions and emotions, a visual catalyst of memories and associations ; past and present. A room is in a constant state of evolution expressing itself in movements from light and dark - a place where time and space can be measurable. I have tried using a variety of means: signs and symbols, dots, dashes, line and tone to capture at once the stationary together with the transitory nature of observed appearances. I have dwelt on and emphasised those ambiguities which have arisen out of the process of creating an image and may reveal something of another reality.... of those submerged realities behind appearances and beyond normal consciousness. The language of an artist is able to cast a glimmer of light on those essential truths.....truths which normally elude civilised man. This thesis provides for sensory and visual appreciation rather than intellectual gratification (thus the emphasis on visual rather than written work). It comprises of a series of drawings, covering some aspects of one particular interior .... in this instance, my livingroom - an immediate environment. The drawings are essentially a visual record of sensory thinking, emotional and free-form imaginative interpretation of commonplace objects. The drawings follow a sequence, both chronologically and in thought development towards painting in which the experience gained of the room, crystallises in paint, size and colour adding dimension. The drawings should perform a dual role, one of providing a direct link with unconscious creative processes, and one of showing a developing awareness of the vital forces and movements that motivate a painting and validate the act of creating it. A variety of techniques have been used, each in its turn revealing some significant facet of the interior. Mixed media drawings predominate, for this media with its own unique properties, is capable of providing a bridge ..... an interlocking of concept and technique where image and media are inseparable.

  • The biologies of two species of weta endemic to the Snares Island : Zealandrosandrus subantarcticus Salmon (Orthoptera : Stenopelmatidae) and Insulanoplectron spinosum Richards (Orthoptera : Rhaphidophoridae)

    Butts, Christine A. (1983)

    Undergraduate thesis
    University of Canterbury Library

    The life histories, behaviour, diet, habitat, and diurnal activity patterns of two species of Snares Island weta, Zealandrosandrus subantaraticus and Insulanovlectron spinosum, are presented. The males and females of Z. subantarcticus had 12 instars. The males of I. spinosum had 9 instars while the females had 10 instars. Eclosion, moulting, inter- and intraspecific interactions, oviposition, and cannabalism are described. The diet of both species included arthropods, plant material, and dead seabirds. Descriptions of abdomina-femoral stridulatory apparatus for both species are presented. Reproductive parameters and sex ratio of both species were examined. Diurnal activity patterns showed an increase in activity half an hour after sunset and a decrease half an hour before sunrise for both species. These species of weta from the Snares Island showed similarities in aspects of their biologies to those of mainland species

  • The geology and eruptive history of the Table Mountain region, Coromandel Peninsula

    Hayward, Bruce W. (Bruce William) (1971)

    Undergraduate thesis
    The University of Auckland Library

    The Table Mountain region covers an area of 2,200 hectares, 17 kilometres north-east of Thames, and straddles the main Coromandel Peninsula Divide between the headwaters of the Kauaeranga and Waiwawa Rivers. It is a region of steeply dissected, bush clad slopes and rugged bluffs composed of andesite, rhyolite and sediments. These rocks belong to three Groups. The oldest group of rocks consists of andesite lavas, breccias and sediments that form the upper part of the Beesons Island Volcanics sequence and were erupted during the upper Miocene and lowermost Pliocene. Unconformably overlying these is the mid Pliocene Whitianga Group containing rhyolitic lavas and sediments. In the Table Mt. Region this Group has been divided into the Minden Rhyolites and two informal sedimentary formations. The Wainora Formation contains basal volcanic breccias and freshwater, carbonaceous, epiclastic sediments that were deposited in two lakes on the dissected surface of the older andesites. This formation contains impressions of fresh-water mussels and numerous leaves, as well as considerable amounts of silicified wood. Conformably overlying the Wainora Formation are the thicker and more extensive water and aerially deposited pyroclastic sediments and rarer ignimbrites of the Waiwawa Formation. Many of the water laid deposits are inferred to have been formed by hot pyroclastic flows entering a lake. Minden Rhyolite domes were produced, by endogenous and exogenous growth, towards the end of this phreatic eruptive period. Hydrothermal alteration is inferred to be closely associated with the four Minden Rhyolite domes of this region. During the upper Pliocene to lower Pleistocene, the Omahia Andesite Group was intruded. The narrow Waiwawa Intrusive came up along an old intrusive contact between a Minden Rhyolite dome and the Waiwawa Formation sediments. The large Table Mt. andesite mass is believed to have formed by a combination of upwelling of lava along a fissure and actual intrusion. Both the Waiwawa and Table Mt. Intrusives spilled small amounts of lava out over the surface as lava flows. In the two million years since the cessation of volcanic activity in this region, erosion has greatly altered the landscape and emphasized the harder rock masses.
