Sculpture & Time-Based Media 1 FSF114


Sculpture and Time-Based Media 1 (STBM 1) explores the development of sculptural objects, or their integration with electronic and time-based media. Within the unit, students can choose a pathway focussed on sculptural responses to the set tasks, or explore how the inclusion of moving image, sound, projection, and digital media with sculptural objects offers creative opportunities. The unit explores installation strategies and practice as a fundamental aspect of contemporary art. You will engage in making and thinking through sculptural and time-based media-based modes, in ways that expand theoretical, conceptual and practical understanding of art practice. 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.
