Unit of study_

Image/Object in Photomedia - CAEL5034

Year - 2020

This unit of study extends the possibilities of photographic practice to expand photographic ideas beyond a two-dimensional form. The unit plays with the traditional material outcome of a photograph by considering what a photograph is as 'an image'. The 'image' unlike the 'photograph' can be anywhere and anything. In the context of image/object it is also considered sculpturally, as an object. The relationship between objects and photography stretch the function of the image. How can the image encompass a sculptural and interactive dimension?
