This unit of study focuses on producing a body of studio work that is conceptually, technically and aesthetically of exhibition standard. You are expected to refine your skills to the highest standard appropriate to the concerns of your work and produce final work that evidences a process of research, analysis and critical awareness. Studio work produced in Photomedia 4 may suggest a starting point for this unit's individual project; alternatively you may take a new direction. This unit includes experiences specifically designed to facilitate your transition to professional life, independent art practice and/or to further postgraduate study. These include learning to write and speak effectively about your work. Class discussions, reviews, student presentations, individual and group consultations with academic staff, artist talks, gallery and studio visits and workshops continue to be part of the unit, in addition to the core activity of producing studio work.
