This subject explores alternative modes of media arts development and creation, focussing on the experimental. Students acquire a conceptual and practical experience of experimental forms, approaches and styles whilst developing their hands-on skills in various time-based media. Students explore ideas around temporality, structure, composition, movement, spatiality, interaction and poetics. They are encouraged to innovate in their production work as they combine their technical, critical and creative skills. Students explore these ideas by designing their own media experiments that reflect and respond to current media practice.
