Unit of study_

Jewellery and Object 3 - CAJO2002

Year - 2020

In this unit of study you continue to develop your critical abilities and extend your technical and theoretical competencies. Research led enquiry foregrounds the role of contemporary jewellery within the broader culture as well as on a more personal level. You consider notions of aesthetics and anti-aesthetics, the symbolic, the utilitarian and the functional.You have opportunities to explore the autonomous object as a means of expression and develop a wide range of technical language. Ongoing discussion with academics and peers further develops your abilities to demonstrate your understanding of the evolution of your ideas as embodied in your work. Feedback forms a critical role in evaluating process and outcomes.
