In this unit you will concentrate on developing a practice-based research project of a speculative and individual nature. Experimentation is encouraged, as is a firm commitment to the articulation of enquiries in written, verbal and visual form, and its integration into creative practice. You will develop a body of creative work and written documentation based on your own line of speculative self-directed research and building on your contextual, theoretical, studio-based and/or industry-based investigations undertaken over the course of the semester.
This work will be further refined for assessment in FSX405 Creative Arts and Media Honours Thesis B in the following semester.
