Fine Art (Studio Practice)

Studio practice aims to integrate cultural theory and aesthetics with an experimental studio practice encouraging students to consider the visual image as a sign in contemporary culture. The course explores theoretical questions looking at the concept of a studio practice within the context of a media-based practice considering aspects of reproduction in terms of print-based, electronic and digital media. The course includes the following possibilities: Painting and printmaking; moving image and photography; sculpture and installation.
