89132 Objects and Accessories Studio: Layer




This studio focuses on creativity and innovation in the context of object design under the umbrella theme of layer. Students build on the conceptual, formal, analytical and critical skills developed in previous studies or professional experiences. The studio enables students to experiment, exposing them to the endless ways objects can be made. 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 actual making.

Objects developed within a contained scale enable students to investigate multiple situations and proposals, realising designs that enable a deeper understanding of form and material.

Parallel studies into the historical, social and cultural aspects linked to the concept of layer in object design enable further understanding and clearly articulated positioning of work in a contemporary context.
