Unit of study_

Site Specific Art and Architecture - AWSS2002

Year - 2018

This practical unit aims to give students a critical understanding of site-specific intervention, through the development of sculptural objects, material investigation and research into relevant visual art forms and architecture. Students gain experience in ways of selecting and analysing sites for the development of site-specific installation. The structured methodologies will allow students to develop material competency exploring techniques in specific combinations of materials. Students will also develop ways of analysing and evaluating site-specific works through directed group discussions engaging in an ongoing discourse regarding site-specificity, installation and the complex relationships between historical and contemporary practices and architecture.
