Sculpture & Time-Based Media 2A FSF218


Sculpture and Time-Based Media (STBM) 2A is focussed on creating Immersive Environments through studio-based creative experimentation and investigation of historical precursors, current practice and related discourse. Students will create installation artworks through experimentation with sculpture, construction, electronic and time-based media such as moving image, sound, performance, animation and projection - individually or in combination. STBM 2A will facilitate self-directed enquiry to expand your capacity to think, make, listen, reflect, and learn through imaginative investigative approaches to creative practice. Staff and technicians will support self-directed investigations. You will work alone and in collaboration with others, learn to critique and contextualise your work, and explore diverse approaches to contemporary art practice. You will apply appropriate safe work practices.
