The principal aim of this course, SPI: Studio Research, is to support the exploratory research underpinning your production of a substantial body of experimental artworks for public exhibition. The aim is to enhance your ability to creatively integrate context, research, processes and technology to invest meaning. Assessment in this course rests upon the formal presentation of artworks, of a standard appropriate to this level of study, that are underpinned by an imaginative exploration of ideas, their conceptual contexts and methods.
SPI: Studio Research is an investigative course dedicated to expanding as well as refining your art practice. Your lecturer will teach you practical skills and the value of research methods, both academic and practical, and how to apply them to optimise the depth and quality of your Sculpture, Performance and Installation Art. In the process, you will strive to resolve your ideas to create coherent self determined artefacts. Self motivation and sustained effort is required. This course correlates with companion courses in the Sculpture, Performance and Installation Stream, combining to intergrate a successful completion of your BFA studies in Year 3 in preparation for Honours.
