CAEL2045: Site Works: Sculptural Interventions

This unit of study provides a studio-based approach to designing and making art works for specific locations or in response to specific guidelines. Stepping outside of the gallery opens up possibilities for exploring some of the broader issues of art and everyday life. In this unit, you will consider the key issues and methodologies relevant for site specific, interventionist or tactically oriented art works, and develop a sound understanding of the proposals required in the competitive field of public art. The unit focuses on the development of your ideas with a view to encouraging inventive approaches to proposals and includes strategies for realising virtual and physical outcomes. The unit combines studio work, short presentations by the lecturer, student presentations and group discussion/critiques, and is conducted in the sculpture studio, the digital labs and various other locations.
