89131 Objects and Accessories Studio: Fold




This studio focuses on creativity and innovation in the context of object design. The theme for this studio is fold. Students build on the conceptual, formal, analytical and critical skills developed in previous studies or professional experiences. The studio enables students to explore and experiment, exposing them to the endless ways objects can be made. Objects developed within a contained scale enable the student to investigate multiple situations and proposals, realising designs that deliver a deeper understanding of form and material. Parallel studies into the historical, social and cultural aspects linked to the concept of fold in object design enable further understanding and clearly articulated positioning of work in a contemporary context. Innovation is driven by the creative application of new and unique combinations of material and process. Students in the studio need to be highly motivated and self-directed, and appreciate that the central focus of this studio is making.
