Subject outline

Students in this subject investigate and analyse the ways in which the arts and media engage in the production and representation of space, whether that be through pictorial, photographic, filmic, architectural, urban design, or, in the digital world, the realms of virtual or cyberspaces. The conceptual ideas around space will be extended by fieldwork and creative projects in which students are encouraged to explore external community spaces such as galleries, exhibitions and site-specific works. This subject addresses La Trobe's Innovation and Entrepreneurship Essential, developing the ability to tackle problems creatively, generating new ideas, taking calculated risks and creating change to achieve ambitions and now and in the future.
