Students build on existing skills, techniques and processes of sculptural construction and fabrication. Students develop an individual project to further explore materiality, sculptural language and spatial properties. Final works will be supported by extensive experimentation, and visual and technical diaries. Students use Studio Theory to develop critical awareness and evaluative skills for interpreting and understanding constructed sculpture within a contemporary and historical context. Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) instruction is an integral part of this course.
