Unit of study_

Screen Arts 3 - CASA2002

Year - 2020

In this unit of study, you build on the experience you gained in Screen Arts 2 to expand and develop your emerging art practices. A program of critical led enquiry provides a framework for you to further refine and develop your screen arts led work. The unit considers the twin concepts of materiality and immateriality, and examines notions such as embodiment and presence and their relationship to time- based visual and aural practice. You engage with a range of artworks and forms, from analogue material-based film practices, to the multiplicity of possibilities engendered by the network. The unit provides an environment in which you are encouraged to explore your own emerging ideas and discover a personal artistic voice. You work closely with 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.
