Using AART1110 Critical Studies 2 as a conceptual frame, and drawing, exploring expanded concepts such as observational and experimental approaches as an integral language and a research methodology, this course is a developed structured enquiry into the expressive potential of three-dimensional (3D) creativity. The course is an expansion of AART1300 3D Creative Enquiry and develops the range of materials and processes in ceramics, fibres-textiles or sculpture highlighting the significance of 3D practices. This foundation experience develops the cultural, historical, contemporary, theoretical and conceptual dimensions of these art forms.
