Synopsis

This unit focuses on the development of communication skills and understanding of conceptual, historical and ideological concerns which relate to 2 and 3 dimensional modes of representation. Examining the relationship between 2dimensional modes of representation and 3 dimensional material and physical outcomes is a primary focus. Two related themes are explored: methods of digital image production, including visualisation and rendering; and processes of material production and fabrication.

Objectives

On successful completion of this unit, students will:

  1. Demonstrate basic skills and understanding of material fabrication techniques;
  2. Demonstrate basic skills in digital rendering of 3-dimensional CAD models (using industry standard hardware / software) and the associated use of post-production software (such as the Adobe suite for example);
  3. Have developed a basic understanding of the transition between abstract 2-dimensional modes of representation and applied three-dimensional physical outcomes;
  4. Understand and be able to apply the rules of occupational health and safety appropriate to the unit of study.
