Contextualising Imaging Practice, Research Project
In this course you will investigate the contributing influence of imaging technologies on the artistic, stylistic and conceptual production of fine art photo works. You will acquire a capacity to formulate and articulate a conceptual foundation for your practice, and to make appropriate decisions as to which mediums and presentation methods best translate your conceptual premise through a photographic practice. Print imaging technology, including photographic and digital processes will be explored to assist you in diversifying your options for fine photo work production. You will develop an understanding of the possibilities offered by photography and its position within contemporary art practice through visual research and experimentation, while continuing to refine your technical skills in order to produce a resolved body of artwork.
You will also deepen your analytical thinking and making skills to locate your studio practice within the broader context of fine art. In consultation with your lecturer, you will take responsibility for the determination of your program and will be encouraged to consider appropriate options for your arts practice.
This course is a self-directed learning program that establishes appropriate methods with photographic related technologies for developing visual projects. The course is designed to align the process of articulation and application of concepts and ideas to photography with related materials and methods of production. The course will cover health and safety issues in the studio, lab and workshop and its relationship to contemporary art practice.
