In Integrated Practice 2 students synthesise their practice with a key thematic subject area of contemporary art research – in 2018 this is Artists’ Books. The unit questions traditional notions of the book as simply the carrier or container of a text and introduces students to creative strategies that will guide the construction of their own artists' book. It re-examines expectations of what a book is through exploration of: form (e.g. scrolls, accordion, pop-ups, single sheet, sculptural); technique (painting, printmaking, collage, photography, written word, typography); narrative devices; and various modes of distribution (as unique or as multiples). The unit foregrounds the relationships between content and form, and text and image, and expects students to synthesise their ideas in a practice-led research context. In addition to developing artworks, students will employ the creative journal as a key means of contextualising their ideas in experimentation and critical reflection.
