Description

This subject explores contemporary digital imagery and the global context in which it is produced and received. Central to this subject is an analysis of the conceptual and practical implications of the digital medium and an image-focused contemporary culture. Through a series of practical and research-driven projects, students extend technical skills and conceptual processes introduced in previous subjects. The subject's collaborative learning focused tasks encourage further experimentation with digital methods of production as well as the application of new ideas gleaned from a sustained examination of digital photo culture. This subject consolidates skills in digital manipulation, post-production, and photographic outcomes in print, web and other forms of electronic and analogue media. It encourages a consideration and application of photographic and situated media skills relevant to professional practice and the broader design context.
