Unit aim

Building on knowledges of perception, transmission of visual information and artefacts this unit allows students to experiment with installation strategies. The way images, video, paintings, objects, and complex media are positioned into dialogue with one another has transformative power. Practice-based literacy of spatial design is key to the development of students independent and collaborative practices. The theme for this unit is ‘Installation’.

Unit content

  • Contemporary and historical installation techniques
  • Experimentation and play with devised exhibition methods
  • Narrative and dialogue construction between artefacts
  • Artefact documentation
  • Work Health and Safety

Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1 constructively critique their own work, and the work of peers in group and individual situations
2 practice and reflect on occupational health and safety in the studio, when collaborating with others and within their own personal studio space
3 develop abilities to recognise the importance of cultural contexts in which artefacts are produced
4 demonstrate an awareness of a range of installation methods and techniques that are relevant to creative visual practice.
