In this unit students will be introduced to a number of key concepts and problems, and through studio enquiry, critical seminars and debate, they are expected to generate their own research question and studio inquiry. With technical assistance and critical guidance offered by staff, students are asked to generate their own studio investigation by adhering to a work plan, developing a creative journal and testing a range of solutions independently and/or collaboratively. As a level 3 unit students are expected to have the skills to be able to engage with the conceptual and technical propositions they set for themselves in sophisticated exchange, studio dialogue and in digital contexts. The development of work can be interdisciplinary in nature and span painting, drawing, video, performance, public art and installation. It is expected that research and studio inquiry will be undertaken in response to workshops, seminars and during studio intensive weeks.
