Subject outline

In this subject students are introduced to interdisciplinary studies through a foundation in alternative media. They select an alternative study; either electronic (digital imaging), or `manual' media (painting, drawing, ceramics, chemical-based photography or illustration), to augment their major discipline study in the other. The emphasis of assignments is on process through which the student brings images from a familiar medium into the studio of the alternative medium to be developed.
