Mål og innhald

Nomadic Structures- ProtoStudio: The development of a modular mobile studio which can be used in the landscape as a research space for developing artwork and discourse around ecology and the environment.

The first phase was involved building JOY Forum a public gallery space which is now used for student exhibitions.

The next phase will be to develop ideas for a mobile outdoor studio and begin building models and prototypes.

The workshop will involve using Google Sketchup and model making to design different model ideas. Then building some of these 1:1 in wood and testing them in spaces outside and inside the building.

The workshop is intended to stimulate ideas around the history of studio practice in relation to painting/drawing and other media and enable a critical discourse regarding contexts of production, reflection and dissemination.


i) relate your practice to the broader context of contemporary art practices and historical precedents;

ii) recognise personal strengths and weaknesses and employ relevant and appropriate working strategies;

iii) gain knowledge and understanding through direct experience of the relevance of different forms of presentation;

iv) identify and synthesise the connections between processes and ideas;

v) identify and analyse relevant sources to inform your practice and develop conceptual skills;

vi) evaluate, discuss and critically reflect upon your own art and the art of others;

vii) interact with others through collaboration, negotiation and group discussion

Krav til forkunnskapar
