This is an introduction to material practices, drawing and construction. Learning how to construct an object starting from a drawing process and translated into a spatial object is the focus. Students develop skills in fabricating an object in both wood and metal. The unit explores the different meanings that materials can generate as a result of their implementation.
Upon successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
- Apply technical skills in wood construction and metal fabrication;
- Plan and produce three dimensional objects that synthesise the process of development between ideas and drawings;
- Analyse the different material properties of basic sculptural techniques and how that can generate different readings;
- Reflect on different approaches to making sculptural and spatial outcomes in wood and metal;
- Articulate ideas and engage in a critical dialogue surrounding methods and materials;
- Advance and further develop ideas for application across a wide range of disciplines;
- Understand and apply the rules of occupational health and safety appropriate to the discipline practice.
