Unit of study_

Photomedia 3 - CAPH2002

Year - 2018

In this unit of study, you choose two strands of studio enquiry in which to develop significant major projects, so as to gain deeper insight into your own art practices. These strands encourage intellectual engagement with key ideas in contemporary art such as marking time, cultural research, staging, the archive, environmental intervention, the everyday, photographic artifice, systems and serial practice. Critical understanding of the relationship between form and concept is developed throughout the semester by encouraging experimentation and refining the specific technical skills needed to develop the concept into a final artwork. You work closely with academic staff to identify relevant theoretical and historical contexts for your research interests. Your work is central to class discussions that provide in-depth feedback for further developing work in progress.
