Experimental Writing Studio - CAEL2060

Year - 2019

Text now is found in a multiplicity of art forms. This open studio interdisciplinary unit investigates text and language in art, from street art to high culture, via self-directed projects that are unbounded by medium and yet use writing as the genesis or as primary material for the production of a work of art. Final works could range from a screenplay or work of fiction, to a body of paintings or sculptures, to artists' books, zines, net art and editions, from video, to sound, and performance art. You will work by way of a self-directed project and on one short in class project. This unit of study is taught by way of tutorials, group critique, workshops, lectures and guest lectures.
