As a student enrolled in Virginia Commonwealth University's Department of Craft/Material Studies' Master of Fine Arts Graduate Degree program, Jacob A. Vincent's sole obligation to the world for the time period beginning in September of 2010 and continuing through April of 2012 was to dwell on things, and to eventually produce something tangible as a result. Having charged himself with the burden of indulging in the task of re-contextualizing all of existence, and ensuring that his peers and professors knew how vitally important that is, this thesis outlines select aspects of his research methodologies and provides a glimpse into the resultant conclusions.
