This course looks at recent trends in visual art where artists and their practices have become hybridised disciplines expanding from conventional outcomes (such as painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, ceramics, object making and printmaking) into new and exciting areas of artistic practice within architecture, new media and design. This course will encourage students to achieve a greater understanding and awareness of the broad spectrum of artistic practices that are inherent within not only visual art, but across a multitude of artistic areas such as design, architecture and new media. This is undertaken through investigating how contemporary society has become a playground for various practitioners to explore new outcomes within private and public spaces changing the way societies and cultures experience their built worlds.
