Unit of study_

Jewellery and Object 2 - CAJO2001

Year - 2020

In this unit of study you deepen your understanding of contemporary jewellery while expanding your own visual language and competency in a studio environment. Through studio projects and theoretical research you explore the different contexts of contemporary jewellery, with the aim of testing possible locations for your own ideas. The unit considers concepts such as portability, scale, intimacy, the public and the private, and the performing body. It integrates practice with social, philosophical and cultural understandings of the body and associated ideas within the field of contemporary art. The unit fosters the development of your own context and language for producing work that brings together your ideas through your ability to make.
