89124 Experimental Visual Communications: Visualising the Invisible

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



In this subject students create projects that give visual form to the social, cultural, scientific or economic narratives embedded in contemporary society. Students have the opportunity to reveal stories that have yet to be realised, or create new experiences from existing stories. This can range from the pragmatic/factual to the poetic/metaphorical, and take various forms such as information design, experimental publication design, exhibition design, motion graphics, etc. The aim is to extract and communicate previously inaccessible meanings, insights and experiences through work that is speculative, provocative, and experimental. In this subject there is an emphasis on the designer as cultural agent/critic. Students are challenged to develop a critical position around an issue, and use their design skills to communicate this position in innovative, playful and challenging ways. Outcomes could be static or interactive, print or digital, objects or installations, and could incorporate sound or moving image.
