- ItemDreamscapes(2012-07-12) Hill, CameronThis project is the third video in a series of videos which captures my artistic development at Willamette University through music and photography. This project continues work originally for a Carson Grant. The video is titled Dreamscapes and is divided into two sections. The thematic issues concern emptiness, nature, space, and people.

- ItemSilence is Solace(2011-12-05T17:41:59Z) Hill, CameronThis project is the second video in a series of videos which captures my artistic development at Willamette University through music and photography. The first video was shown at SSRD 2010 and is titled Revelations on Serenity. This second video is divided into two sections. The first explores the relationship between nature and humanity while the second is a more abstract expression using a repeated image as a character. The entire video is in monochrome with original music compositions designed to guide the viewer through the experience.
- ItemDifferences in Couple Representation Between Men’s and Women’s Magazines(2010-07-13T17:24:31Z) Stewart, Shannon; Geck, AmandaThis study was a content analysis on ten mainstream men’s and ten mainstream women’s magazines. Researchers looked for depictions of a couple within articles, advertisements, and in any images within the magazine. Every item was coded for what kind of couple was shown, the tone towards being a couple, and what the genders of the individuals within the couple were. A tally of how many articles and images mentioned couples, and how many articles or advertisements featured birth control was made in addition to the coded items. It was hypothesized that couples would be mentioned more in women’s magazines and would be portrayed more positively compared to the men’s magazines. Results supported this hypothesis through chi-square analysis. Furthermore, the hypothesis that most couples represented would be heterosexual couples was also supported. All of our results were statistically significant.
- ItemPersonality as a Predictive Factor of Coping Styles: Contextualizing “Successful” Coping among Survivors of Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence(2010-05-24T21:34:52Z) Jones, MeganPast research has explored personality traits as predictive factors of coping with general and task-induced stress. Personality traits have not been explored as predictive factors of coping with gendered violence. Ten clients at a women’s crisis service completed surveys that consisted of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, the revised Ways of Coping Checklist, and a demographics form. Results indicated that extroverts, sensors and thinkers used engagement coping strategies and introverts, intuitors and feelers used disengagement coping strategies. The present study should be replicated with a larger sample size. Pending replication, the results could improve counseling for survivors of gendered violence.
- ItemRevelations on Serenity(2010-05-19T19:04:35Z) Hill, CameronThis project is an exploration concerning the personal freshman year experience at Willamette University through photography. The project came from a personal desire to document the experience in an artistic manner. The video is divided into two sections. The first documents, in chronological order, the experience while the second is a more abstract artistic expression using photography. The video is supposed to represent a singular narrative on the experience which is why the video is in monochrome. In the second part of the video I wanted to explore the notion of the “self” and see how the concept relates to ourselves and how we interpret the world around us. The main theme running throughout the video is the concept of serenity. ***Note: Use Apple's QuickTime to view this video & music. This runs 15:50 minutes in length.
