Notes for "Atoms, Death, Aliens, Magic, Intellect"

Here are the notes for "Atoms, Death, Aliens, Magic, Intellect."

Coleman Lauermann -- He has fair skin, brown eyes, and short brown hair that tends to stand up. He is demisexual, but uncertain what the rest of his orientation might be since few other teens have the patience for a relationship long enough to warm up his romantic/sexual feelings. Coleman enjoys camping and other outdoor activities. He is studying Human Dimensions of Natural Resources with a minor in Ecological Restoration at the Colorado State University Warner College of Natural Resources, intending to become a park ranger. His innate shyness makes this challenging in some regards. Also he is a secular humanist, but has not quite noticed that his appreciation of nature borders on reverence.
Qualities: Expert (+4) Camper, Good (+2) Naturalistic Intelligence, Good (+2) Physically Fit, Good (+2) Secular Humanist

Coleman tends to dress in black, gray, white, blue, and purple. See his winter and summer wardrobes. He uses T-shirts for accents, such as demisexual and environmental themes.

Dott Matrix (Arden Ranzulo) -- She has fair skin, brown eyes, and straight brown hair cut short. She lives in Westbord, California. She is demiromantic. Arden is an undergraduate at the University of Berkeley in San Francisco, with a Computer Science major and a Human Rights minor. Those specialties feed into her tendency to see the world as a glitchy venue that would benefit from debugging. She feels that civilization is something humans created, and therefore, can change as needed just the way they modify cyberspace installations.
Origin: Arden has had difficulty maintaining biochemical equilibrium all her life, and worse since puberty. So she got a set of biometric tattoos that change in response to her body. They measure levels of glucose, sodium, hydration, and pH. But over the course of several months, they gave her superpowers. In retrospect, her doctors believe that the earlier problems stemmed from latent superpowers interacting oddly with her metabolism. Now Arden is much healthier, although she still needs to keep an eye on her body.
Uniform: On duty, Dott Matrix uses the chameleon effect of her tattoos to create a pattern of black and white spots. Off duty, she wears casual women's clothes. Her favorite colors are blue, black, and white.
Qualities: Good (+2) Athletic, Good (+2) Audacious, Good (+2) College Student, Good (+2) Geek Friends, Good (+2) Memory
Powers: Good (+2) Gizmotronic Tattoos
The tattoos can be stealthed to reveal her everyday appearance, or used to creat a chameleon effect. She has Super-Gizmology, Super-Intellect, and Technopath.
Motivation: To make the world a better place.

L-America is working on color-changing tattoos to monitor things like glucose level, sodium, pH, and hydration.

NeonFlux (Josie Lomica) -- She has fair skin, brown eyes, and straight brown hair just past her shoulders. When she uses her superpower, then her skin lights up in neon colors. She is slender with small breasts and hips. She is 19 years old. NeonFlux lives on a farm in South Dakota. Although she still struggles to control some aspects of her superpowers, she wants to help people, so she volunteers to work with flickering youth, refugees, and other folks who need a hand stabilizing their emotions. She wants to find someone to spend her life with, in hopes that a permanent relationship will anchor her against other people's influence, but so far she hasn't found the right person(s). She is aroflux, and that complicates matters.
Origin: As a teen, Josie took part in a body image workshop that involved body painting. Instead of fading, the colors soaked into her skin and she developed superpowers.
Uniform: Practical girl clothes, often jeans with a tank top or t-shirt. She likes soft, natural colors. See her summer and winter wardrobes.
Qualities: Good (+2) Emotional First Aid, Good (+2) Graceful, Good (+2) Farmer, Good (+2) Naturalistic Intelligence, Good (+2) Trustworthy
Poor (-2) Feeling Different
Powers: Expert (+4) Empathy, Good (+2) Neon Chameleon Skin
Whenever she uses her Empathy, she absorbs influence from other people, which shifts her orientation along the asexual/aromantic spectrum. The result is disorienting and makes it difficult for her to maintain relationships. Emotions and other influences appear on her skin in neon colors, often showing handprints. When she touches someone whose energy is compatible enough, her imprint can show on their skin, although it usually fades within a few hours.
Limitation: Shielding is difficult and tiresome for her, costing a hero point to avoid picking up things from nearby people, so she doesn't do it all the time. Instead she prefers to live on a farm away from most other people.
Motivation: To help people.

Aroflux - Is someone whose romantic orientation is on the aromantic spectrum & is defined as.....
someone who's romantic orientation fluctuates but always stays on the aro spectrum. (ex. one day you're demiro, another day lithro, the next aro, etc)
someone who's romantic orientation fluctuates from, experiencing romantic attraction, some romantic attraction, & experiencing no romantic attraction.
some people who are aroflux feel as if they are alloromantic at times, while other aroflux people don't feel that way. aroflux people can be romance repulsed, romance indifferent / neutral/apathetic towards romance, or romance positive. & can have any sexual orientation

Dana Lane -- Ey has fair skin and eyes of vivid blue-green. Eir hair started out dark and is buzzed short on the sides. The longer top section is turning shades of blue from aquamarine to cobalt. Ey wears glasses. Ey has tunnel earrings, a nostril piercing on the left side, and a septum ring. Dana is 18 years old. Ey is demiromantic, sapiosexual, and demisensual. As an artist, ey tends to view the body on an aesthetic level and the personality on a connective level.
Dana is studying toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Art at the University of Kansas in Lawrence. Instead of a minor, ey is working toward a Certificate in Entrepreneurship for Non-Business Students, a Psychology Certificate, and a Sustainability Certificate.
Origin: In high school, Dana participated in an art workshop that involved throwing paint at each other. Some of the paint was new color-changing stuff that was supposed to respond to the chemistry of other media it contacted. Ey developed superpowers as a result.
Uniform: Dana dresses in a casual chic style, mostly in shades of black, gray, and blue. Ey also collects scarves printed with famous paintings and artistic jewelry like these earrings.
Qualities: Good (+2) Art Student, Good (+2) Dexterity, Good (+2) Find the Others, Good (+2) QUILTBAG Identities, Good (+2) Visual-Spatial Intelligence
Powers: Good (+2) Tetrachromat, Average (0) Crayon Soup
Dana has the ultraviolet sight that some crayon soups have, along with hair that is turning various shades of blue and eyes that have taken on more vivid shades of blue and green. Ey can see many more colors than most humans can.

Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Art
from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas
The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Art is a four-year, 120 credit hour degree program. The first year is spent in Foundations where students focus on the development of their creative and technical skills.

The Foundations Program is an integral part of the first year experience for Visual Art majors. All undergraduate students, including B.F.A., B.A., and B.A.E., must complete two semesters (12 credit hours) of foundations before beginning upper level studio classes.
The aim of Art Concepts and Practice and Art Principles and Practice is to provide experiences that build creativity, knowledge, and skill to successfully communicate visual ideas. Foundation drawing courses provide a focused setting for learning to translate objects into visual form. This translation from object to form is the single most essential tool that all artists rely on, regardless of medium or artistic direction.
In addition to technical skills, the Foundations Program is designed to teach students to think and see like an artist before moving on to more advanced or medium specific skills.

Foundations Courses
ART 101 Drawing I

After the foundation year, students select five introductory courses from across the seven studio areas:
• Ceramics
• Expanded Media
• Metalsmithing/Jewelry
• Painting/Drawing
• Printmaking
• Sculpture
• Textiles/Fibers
The intent is for students to explore a variety of mediums in order to determine how they would like to focus their advanced studies. In addition, fundamental concepts and strategies of artmaking are reinforced, even as new techniques and approaches from various disciplines are introduced.

Learn to handbuild, throw, slip cast and make molds. Specialized surfaces, like earthenware low temperature majolica, decals, as well as stoneware and porcelain high temperature glazes and atmospheric firings, like gas reduction, salt, and wood are taught as fundamental elements of the curriculum. Both contemporary and historical ceramic and art history is incorporated in studio classes as well as regular group and individual critiques. Advanced classes are not project based allowing students to focus their work and personal explorations while maintaining a vital interactive studio experience with fellow students and faculty with scheduled critiques, readings, discussions, visiting artists and slide lectures. Courses in kilns and clay and glaze formulation broaden student knowledge.

Painters share with poets the magical realms of illusion and metaphor. Derived from a 15,000-year long history, painting today is a complex language that continues to evolve as a vital and everlasting part of contemporary art. Art history reveals that painting offers unending territory for the creative and expressive act. If pursued with rigor, it offers immense rewards as a vehicle to engage with the world while, at the same time, serving as a mirror for cultural understanding and self-reflection.
Painting at KU
Painting students move through a curriculum that builds technical skill and knowledge. You will enjoy the substantial resources and opportunities offered by a large, comprehensive studio art program including individual senior studios, internships, scholarships, travel grants, visiting artists and study abroad trips. Large classrooms accommodate a variety of painting projects, including large-scale work. Faculty members are diverse, active practitioners who exhibit nationally and internationally while teaching structured courses that lead to a variety of special topics and independent study courses. Faculty members actively support student research and mentor students toward success.
Ultimately our goal is to foster each student as an independent working artist. Frequent critiques build communication skills, knowledge and critical analysis. The senior Professional Activities Seminar prepares students for a career by including workshops on graduate school applications, exhibition opportunities and grant applications. Art related positions are introduced by visitors from museums, galleries and arts agencies that may involve art therapy, teaching, restoration, art journalism, and more. Finally, the School of the Arts encourages activity across the arts while the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences offers diverse intellectual inquiry and research support.

The Expanded Media area is characterized by a dedication to innovative forms of artistic expression and conceptual approaches to art, the pursuit of which lies beyond any one medium. The availability and growth of media technologies have resulted in a fundamental rethinking of the boundaries of disciplines. This is embraced as representing unique opportunities for students. The area provides a solid foundation for those who wish to integrate time-based ideas and technology into their art making process. Comprised of Performance Art, Installation Art, Digital Strategies and Intermedia, Expanded Media provides an environment for students who wish to experiment and create interdisciplinary multiple media works often associated with various technologies. Expanded Media emphasizes the idea and process of expanding techniques. It embraces collaborative and interdisciplinary approaches. Work is grounded in an exploration of new forms with an understanding that it provides the potential to open creative possibilities with all medias, which mirror and embody one's artistic vision.
In Expanded Media, students are expected to engage in critical dialogue about art, technology, the nature of creativity, the role of the artist in society and other aspects of art as a professional practice. Issues of process, context and problem solving are inherent in the curriculum. Students are encouraged to find indoor/outdoor sites suitable for their projects and to procure professional exhibition spaces in the local community. There are numerous outlets at the University that can provide an opportunities for students to present their works in the public and professional environment. In addition, the city of Lawrence has many centrally located venues for students to exhibit their work before a diverse audiences.

This mindset is critical to the success of any type of organization, at any stage of development. With just three courses + a reflection you can earn a Certificate of Entrepreneurship. The program is open to all non-business students, both undergraduate and graduate. See below for our course offerings and program details.

Sustainability Certificate
The complex and interdependent challenges of our world today require critical thinking and creative approaches to meeting the goals of our modern society without undermining the resources that support them. Sustainability is not a study for a select few, but a life skill that will provide every KU graduate and global citizen with an interdisciplinary world view, in preparation for contributing to solutions for our present and our future.
Undergraduate students from any major or discipline at the University of Kansas can earn a Sustainability Certificate as part of their degree portfolio.
The certificate includes three learning components:
• Coursework: Students may choose 3 to 4 academic courses (totaling 9-16 credit hours), each introducing a unique interdisciplinary view of sustainability.
• Experience: Students must engage in and complete 60 hours of experiential learning, which may take the form of service, research, or a combination of both.
• Reflection: Having completed the course and learning requirements, students will submit a detailed reflection on their combined experience.

Certificate Course Work
Students pursuing the Sustainability Certificate must complete one* course from each of the three categories below: Foundations, Physical Systems, and Human Systems. Classes need not be taken in that order.
Foundations for Sustainability
*Students can choose from UBPL 200 OR the 2-part Global Environment series to fulfill this category requirement.
UBPL 200: Sustainability and Society Fall

Physical Systems
GEOL 543: Environmental Ethics: A View from the Natural Parks

Human Systems
ENTR 490: Social Entrepreneurship Spring, Fall

(Dana did eir experiential learning in a research project about the sustainability of artistic supplies.)
In addition to selective coursework, students pursuing the Sustainability Certificate should complete 60 hours of hands-on experiential learning outside of the classroom.
Your Experience should:
• Be completed with one organization or department.
• Multiple tasks or projects are permitted, but it must be with one site.
• Include some kind of applied learning component.
• Such as results in or contributes to a report, project, research, result, etc. Simply showing up for a group volunteer activity is not sufficient for experiential learning.
• Be approved by the Certificate Coordinator before you begin your hours.
• Complete the proposal form found within the Sustainability Certificate at myKU>Academics>Undergraduate Certificates
• Coincide with the completion and submission of all online experience forms.
• All forms can be found and submitted within the Sustainability Certificate at myKU>Academics>Undergraduate Certificates
• Retroactive experiences are subject to approval.
• Experiences may be retroactively applied, if completed within the last academic year. They are still subject to approval and all required forms will still have to be completed.

Reflecting on the Certificate Experience
As the third and final requirement of their Sustainability Certificate, students will be asked to reflect on their collective certificate experience. Broad reflection questions will guide students through completing this step.
Reflections should be submitted upon completion of all course work and experience hours, or, for those preparing to graduate, very close to it. The deadline to submit all final certificate components is the same day as Stop Day each semester.
You will be prompted to complete and submit your reflection within the Sustainability Certificate at myKU>Academics>Undergraduate Certificates.
