Sculpture & Time-Based Media 1 FSF114

Hobart, Launceston


Sculpture and Time Based Media (STBM) explores the integration of objects with moving images. Sculpture explores three dimensional forms, materials and environments, through diverse making processes such as carving, modelling, casting and construction and Time Based Media explores time, space, sound and material through moving image techniques such as film, projection, video, and stop motion animation. STBM is fundamental to installation practice which is a cornerstone of contemporary art.

This unit will introduce you to the skills, techniques and technologies of sculpture and moving image via experimentation, critique and conceptualisation. You will engage in making, thinking, listening and feeling in multiple dimensions in ways that expand your theoretical, conceptual and practical understanding. Staff and technicians will support and guide you to apply and experiment with these skills, and reflect on the outcomes, while engaging safe work practices.
