VIS2530 Field and Studio
Credit Points: 15
VIS1305 Materials and Methods: Approaches to Studio

This unit investigates visual and literary relationships between field research and creative outcomes. Methodologies will be explored between such practices in both the humanities and the natural sciences. On-site exercises will enable the student to identify and apply different techniques and processes of undertaking research in the field, such as sampling, drawing, note-taking, photography, video and automatic writing. Excursions will be undertaken in a range of different sites (beach, bushland, landscaped sites) and will then be supplemented by developmental work in the studio. Students develop a proposal based on their research and identify achievable outcomes using media and techniques of their choice.
