Synopsis

Challenges the proposal in the light of the visual work being undertaken in studio. It is more analytical and critical in regard to the candidate's own work than the first subject and results in an assessment of the extent to which the original ideas were feasible.

Objectives

On successful completion of this unit, students will:

  1. be able to identify and interrogate the intention within their work, submitting it to critical scrutiny and either defending it or modifying it against such scrutiny;
  2. be able to argue the logic of their chosen working method - whether led by formulated intention or led by intuitive making processes - in order to provide insights into the artistic process;
  3. be able to argue the contemporary relevance of their work;
  4. have a self-critical understanding of their practice, especially with respect to ideological issues like gender, class and ethnicity;
  5. be equipped to sustain an exegetical elaboration of their work and its placement in current visual production.

Assessment

Preliminary work on studio proposal: 25%
Discursive studio record (5000 words): 75%
