Subject outline

In this subject students extend concerns invetigated in the medium of their major studio discipline in an alternative visual art discipline or studio. Students bring ideas or concepts from their familiar major medium into the studio of the alternative medium. The emphasis of assignments is on process and an assessable journal is used to record process, development and outcomes. In the lectures we provide an overview of historical practice in combined media or multi-media by examining works by practitioners. Assessment and feedback sessions provide students with the critical skills to evaluate the outcomes.
