Description

This studio encourages students to challenge the conventional positioning of visual communication and to re-imagine it as a site for provocation, speculation and experimentation. Central to this is an engagement with practice-led research, enabling students to investigate complex issues through visual communication design processes.

Students develop their visual and conceptual abilities through self-directed projects. Students work in small supervisory groups, developing a culture of critique and experimentation necessary to facilitate meaningful design artefacts, experiences and environments.

Students are expected to produce a substantial project that evidences advanced practical and theoretical design expertise. Studio participants also have the opportunity to challenge the material boundaries associated with visual communication practice by working with emerging digital technologies and new materials alongside more established methods of production. Outcomes can be static or interactive, print or digital, objects or installations, and could incorporate sound or moving image.
