Theater of war ( Visual )
9 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An examination of Bertolt Brecht's "Mother Courage and her children", and the political philosophies the play represents. Preparing for The Public Theater's 2006 production of Brecht's anti-war play, Meryl Streep allows a camera crew to document her rehearsal process and interest in the work. Moreover, the life and times of Brecht himself are followed, most notably the playwrites' escape from Nazi Germany, subsequent exile, testimony to the House Un-American Activities Committee, and his eventual return to the country where the play was first staged. Along with backstage scenes and discussion by theatre notables such as Tony Kushner and Streep's costar Kevin Kline, the documentary seeks to depict the history and inspirations underlying the play's themes
How to draw a bunny ( Visual )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Explores the fascinating, often hilarious, and always enigmatic world of artist and underground icon Ray Johnson whose mysterious suicide frames the film. He was considered a genius whose collages have been exhibited in major museums around the world
The First Amendment project ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Some assembly required: This film examines the protests during the 2004 Republican National Convention focusing on the disconnect between society's desire for order and the NYPD's overzealous application of force in stamping out potential threats to the placid image of the GOP's "big tent." Mainstream media downplayed the protests to the point of near-invisibility during the convention, so this portrait of articulate protesters serves as a corrective

Documentary about pop artist Ray Johnson, whose death was as mysterious as his life
How to draw a bunny ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The story of the life of artist Ray Johnson is cloaked in mystery not only at the moment of his death, but also throughout a career that was difficult to know and to understand. As one of the seminal figures in the Pop Art era, Johnson is known as the founding father of mail art and as a collagist extraordinaire. But, overshadowed by those like Warhol who manipulated that world in a very dissimilar manner, he was also a reclusive and sometimes enigmatic figure who has been called New York's most famous unknown artist, but who challenged the commercial and critical establishment"--Internet movie database summary by Sujit R. Varma, as viewed on January 3, 2007. Includes interviews with Christo, Chuck Close, Roy Lichtenstein, Judith Malina, and James Rosenquist
On Stress Collapse in Adiabatic Shear Bands ( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The dynamics of adiabatic shear band formation is considered making use of a simplified thermo/visco/plastic flow law. A new numerical solution is used to follow the growth of a perturbation from initiation, through early growth and severe localization, to a slowly varying terminal configuration. Asymptotic analyses predict the early and late stage patterns, but the timing and structure of the abrupt transition to severe localization can only be studied numerically, to date. A characteristic feature of the process is that temperature and plastic strain rate begin to localize immediately, but only slowly, whereas the stress first evolves almost as if there were no perturbation, but then collapses rapidly when severe localization occurs
Adiabatic Shear Bands in One Dimension ( )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This report summarizes the progress made at the Ballistic Research Laboratory to date in analyzing and understanding the dynamical processes that cause the formation of adiabatic shear bands and the influence of various physical parameters on their formation. Adiabatic shear
