In this unit you resolve and present a body of work of a
speculative and individual nature. This work will
demonstrate your ability to engage in coursework or
research training at postgraduate level and/or creating a
self-defined sustainable practice within a local and global
contemporary creative arts context.
Building on investigations undertaken in FSA416, you will
refine your thesis with reference to contextual, theoretical,
studio-based and/or industry-based investigations. The
form of the final body of work will depend on the project
and may include a resolved body of art or design work, a
performance, a written document of 15000 words, or
appropriate documentation and a project summary based
