Photography: Digital imaging for contemporary art

Check the Handbook for the latest unit information.


Digital imaging for contemporary art is designed to develop an approach to digital imaging tools that aligns with the objectives of a contemporary art and curatorial practice. You will be introduced to digital imaging processes such as still image manipulation, moving image and various approaches to output such as printing and screen-based applications. While this unit provides a practical introduction to the basic digital imaging tools and materials there is an emphasis on the creative and experimental potential of these tools and how they are utilised within a broader creative practice. You are encouraged to develop your own creative direction alongside a critical awareness of ideas.
