This subject explores photographic practice as a form of research. Research is the foundation from which students consider emerging image practices and develop a body of photographic and moving image work in response to a set of conceptual frameworks. This subject supports students to develop individual and collaborative practices that are conceptually, critically and theoretically driven. Students are encouraged to collaborate on reading, research and technical tasks as well as work independently on their creative outcomes. Students engage with research, analysis, peer feedback and develop critical thinking skills relevant to contemporary image-based practices. This subject facilitates a transition to creative industries, independent practice and further honours study. Students learn to communicate clearly and effectively in class, in feedback sessions, presentations, written tasks and in group work.
