Subject outline

In this subject students may choose to follow a particular direction in the production of convergent media, including collaborative projects, community-based projects, the combination of two or more media to produce hybrid forms of their own devising. They should provide evidence of a sound grasp of the comparative process. Experimentation and progressive iterations are significant assessable outcomes. Assessments will be presented in group reviews and evaluated with regard to the extent that characteristics of the selected convergent media are exploited for aesthetic purpose. In lectures students will be provided with the critical background to consider the variety of art forms, other than 'high art' that may be derived from historical and contemporary cultural exchange. Reference will be made to contemporary practitioners and examples.
