This course will explore the artist book as both an independent art form with a long history and as a creative tool within a broader contemporary art practice. Students will research and produce a range of book models in the studio, culminating in an independent project which creatively explores the potential of the book as art. Work health and safety instruction is an integral component of this course.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- in response to set tasks, competently utilise a range of skills relevant to book design;
- independently explore the potential of materials relevant to book design;
- apply concepts and techniques to the development of resolved works of art;
- demonstrate a critical awareness of relevant historical traditions and conventions across the field of book design and its relationship to contemporary art; and
- comply with work health and safety requirements and procedures.
