87900 Critical Practice: Project

Requisite(s): 87008 Critical Practice: Theorisation AND 87933 Critical Practice: Experimentation


In this subject, students extend their self-directed research and experimental design processes from the previous session, leading to the development and presentation of a refined design response. Outcomes may be realised in any media and may take the form of a designed object or process, a portfolio of experiments, an extended piece of critical writing, or a combination of these three.

Students are mentored to undertake critical analysis, synthesis and reflective evaluation as the intellectual basis of their working methodology. Students are required to independently define and address issues relating to appropriate use of technology and production processes, user testing, production scheduling and project management, and the appropriateness of design form to communicative intent. Assessment is undertaken by a panel of academics advised by external practitioner-researchers.
