Unit of study_

Screen Arts 2 - CASA2001

Year - 2020

In this unit of study you engage in practical and critical enquiry that provides you with the technical skills and conceptual frameworks associated with screen based art in the contemporary context. This unit considers the twin concepts of time and place in relation to the moving image and broader contemporary practice. It explores notions of spectatorship, subjectivity and transmission in relation to both contemporary and historical critical discourse. You gain a deeper insight into your own emerging practices through a program that provides a framework for critical investigation while remaining flexible enough to allow you to pursue your own lines of enquiry. You work closely with your peers and academic staff to develop good communication skills for expressing ideas and discussing work in progress. Through a program of screenings, lectures, one to one tutorials and studio critiques you acquire the skills and confidence necessary to assess, refine and produce a range of artistic outcomes based on a rigorous engagement with ideas and techniques associated with screen arts.
