87441 VC Project: Contexts of Visual Communication6cp; 3hpw x 12wks (1hpw, lecture, online, 2hpw, studio, on campus)
Requisite(s): 87632 VC Design Studio: The Ethics of Image and Text AND 87222 VC Design Project: Symbols, Systems and Visual Play
In this subject, students explore a range of historical contexts from which visual communication practices have emerged. Students also consider how political, social and technological shifts have shaped contemporary practices, and in turn, how design might respond to issues such as living in the anthropocene and the impact of technological determinism on global inequalities and ecological survival. This approach to design history enables students to propose 'what-if' scenarios about the past and shows how history can encourage new interpretations of particular events and present alternate futures.
