Final Assignment

  • Already on Moodle
  • Time to think about it
  • Alongside the weekly sketchbook tasks, you should produce a single, lens based exhibition-ready ‘photographic piece’
  • Themes contemplated in the lecture series should be addressed within your work. Same rigor applies to the final product.
  • Submission must ecist both as a singularly unique and finely crafted physical object, as well as being infinitely replicable and readily communicable in a digital form. The student should explore and develop aspects of their final piece that exploit the full gamut of opportunities available in both the physical and digital
  • Can just expand on a weekly task.
