COMPARATIVE STUDIES IN VISUAL MEDIA D

VPA2CVD

Not currently offered

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students combine two media to produce a hybrid form of their own devising. Hybridization requires experimentation and innovation and alternative works will be trialed, tested and recorded before a single solution is selected. After progressive iterations and assessments, outcomes will be presented in a group exhibition and evaluated with regard to the extent that differences between the selected convergent media are resolved. In lectures that provide the critical background, we will consider the variety of art forms that become possible when the distinctions between traditional media become blurred or transgressed. Reference will be made to contemporary practitioners and examples of hybrid media.
