This course provides students with a broad view of contexts that underpin and continue to shape critical design and contemporary practice for artists, designers, and craftspeople. The course theme "Materiality and Value" encompasses topics and issues that impact makers and the outcomes of making, such as labour, value, utility, and materiality. The overarching theme allows for trans-disciplinary, practice-based responses. Students will demonstrate and apply critical thinking and studio theory to projects through individual and/or collaborative work.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- identify and articulate an advanced critical awareness of the impact of Materiality and Value on making;
- engage in independent exploration of a practice-based approach to given themes through experimentation, fabrication, and presentation of works;
- research and analyse historical and theoretical concepts regarding the given theme(s); and
- identify and interrogate the contextual relevance of artists and designers that inform their own creative practice.
School of Art & Design studio courses have a limited enrolment capacity. Students are advised to enrol as early as possible to maximise the opportunity of securing a place.
