This unit allows students to consolidate the skills and knowledge gained in the Project Major 1 and 2 units. Over the course of this unit students work on the development of a final creative project that is the culmination of their study towards the degree of Master of Contemporary Art or The Master of Moving Image. The final project created in this unit will be exhibited in the Graduation Exhibition with the associated artistic and professional development acting as a capstone experience to the completed degree. Working individually students will conceptualise, develop and realise creatively based projects that will build on the learning and development they have experienced in preceding units. Much of the study in this unit is self-directed with students responding to assessment milestones that contribute to the development of their major projects. Through an integrated program of seminars, tutorials, screenings, gallery visits and directed exercises students are provided with a framework in which to conceive and develop their major projects. Throughout the unit students are challenged to develop their ideas and artistic practice beyond their achievements of preceding semesters.
