Synopsis: This unit further pursues links between technique and subject matter in a quest to find-through practice-coherence of intention, style and meaning. It deals with matters of taste and appreciation, reaching to delicate issues in the critique of style and iconography, and arriving at intuitions of the poetic. The unit provides for the student to propose his or her directions at all stages, with the critical guidance of the lecturer.

Objectives: On successful completion of this unit, students will: 1.develop technical methods and appreciate the poetic impact that this development has upon their subject matter; 2.realize a poetic dynamic relating content and technical methods; 3.identify and resolve complex conceptual problems of intention and content in their own work; 4.handle critical views about their work and respond either with suitable changes in practice or counter-arguments which deflect the criticisms.
