Studio Practice 3B FSX312

Hobart, Launceston


You will use your contextual narrative to develop and refine an artwork(s). As you engage in the the processes and strategies of refinement, which can include iteration, reflection and editing, you will be encouraged to reflect on how you will know when you are done, that is when is the work resolved.

You may continue to work within a specific medium or as your project dictates adopt other media and processes.  You will participate in critical and analytical discourse and media expertise that is both in-depth and generalised.

The culmination of this unit will be the development of a substantial art work(s) for public presentation.   The final work may be singular as in a monolithic installation, or consist of related works, or a series of related images.
