Content

This unit explores approaches to the use of models and modelling as critical tool and practice in visual arts. The unit will bring together material and conceptual considerations that are required in model-making and the ideas used when produce a 'model', maquette, prototype, study, etc. The learning activities will involve the use of drawing, modelling objects in clay, making maquettes (scale models) of installations or exhibitions, and other aspects of 3D modelling processes. This approach will make the assumptions regarding spatial relationships, proportion and materiality evident and allow students to analyse and articulate the cultural significance and perspectives involved in devising a modelling/model-making project.
