Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

The purpose of this paper is for students to engage with creative practices that enable production of high quality, interactive multimedia installations. Students will utilise practice-related methodologies to generate materials to convert into a user-friendly project. It is expected that students reflect their own social, cultural, and political backgrounds. The paper adopts ideas and practices of the Situationist International movement to generate ideas and produce artworks that will be suitable for public exhibition.

MEDIA305 provides an opportunity for students to share their passion for photography, sound design, painting, moving image, etc. to produce a multimedia installation project. These works should be thought-provoking, inspiring, and challenging for users.

The paper orientates projects on a specific theme, and this year students will produce work interpreting notions of the "protest". It is anticipated that students use both lecture and workshop periods to experiment, collaborate and reflect upon their practices in the creation of 2x multimedia installations.
