2013 UC Davis Scarf Collection: Squeak Carnwath

Professor Emerita, UC Berkeley Artist

Connecting the Dots Learning Today


This work was created specifically for the UC Davis Scarf Collection. The art was made by scanning into the computer images made by Carnwath, along with an image of a map of the Davis campus. Then the images were manipulated, altered, and layered to create a digital file, which was then printed to make the scarf. To make the file/artwork for the scarf, Carnwath worked with Don Farnsworth at Magnolia Editions in Oakland, CA. The scarf is a limited edition original artwork because it exists only in this format.

The images on the scarf are laid on top of a map of the UC Davis campus. The California cutout shapes have a dot indicating the location of Davis.

Symbols on the work include: a candelabra for knowledge or insight; a log for good luck or an acknowledgement of the natural world or rural life; records for mortality and that we go around at least once; the vessel is an acknowledgement of anthropology, art and ancient history; the dots are connecting lines symbolizing making connections; a question mark for critical thinking or research or questioning (an important part of university life); and a net form symbolizes DNA.
