Interdisciplinary Studio Practice (ISP) 5 is offered to 3rd year students who wish to continue a course of study that is conceptually lead and focuses on interdisciplinary practice and theory within contemporary fine art.
The students are encouraged to continue to prioritise and follow lines of enquiry that stem from and develop conceptual investigations to a higher degree of competence than in year 2. Their conceptual exploration will continue to lead, inform and dictate material, process, skill and media based investigations. The module will enable students to consolidate and develop their interests in a wide variety of contemporary and traditional subjects, including those already offered at the School and those new to the school.
The module encourages the students to develop a studio based practice, so they can contribute and assist in each others learning and development. The module promotes and centres on community learning, collaboration and communication, therefore meetings will be student centred and student lead, where possible, focussing upon students work in progress and discussions on relevant contemporary practice.
The module offers the students the facility of a Project Room; an empty, experimental bookable space situated within the studio area and a designated studio space. The students are encouraged to book this space for experimental project work throughout the semester.
The students will continue to approach their practice with the possibility of employing a wide range of media: installation, mixed media, 3 dimensions, film, video, sound, site specificity, new genre public art, relational practice, text based practice, performance, animation, contemporary drawing, painting, photography, printmaking etc.
The new media disciplines; video, sound, animation, digital art etc are taught and supported by workshops and one to one surgeries in the Creative Media Lab within the Department.
The students will cross the boundaries of specific mediums, to work with a combination of mediums that best suit their conceptual investigations.
This module is at CQFW Level 6
