The focus of this unit is on artistic processes and the development of a sustainable self-directed studio practice. Through critical reflection, discussion, research and debate, students are expected to generate a research question and write a proposal which will drive the studio inquiry for the trimester. At third year level, students will have the opportunity to realise their creative and technical ambitions through practice, workshops, studio dialogue and critical reflection. The development of the project work can be discipline focused or interdisciplinary in nature and span painting, drawing, video, performance, public art and installation. The Journal allows students to track research progress, experiment with ideas and materials and test creative solutions. Students will produce a body of work that reflects an emerging creative focus and develop skills in planning and achieving ambitious studio projects.
