Image/Object in Photomedia (CAEL2043)


This unit of study explores how photography can interact with the world beyond a two-dimensional image, and how the relationship between objects and photography can stretch the function of the image. You consider what a photograph may be materially when it extends into a three-dimensional object form, and how the image might be situated to encompass a sculptural and interactive dimension. You develop image-based practices that combine digital photography, analogue photography, projection, print, objects and installation to encourage a multidisciplinary approach to photographic practice.
