The subject introduces visual media students to installation art and the idea of the Superfiction. This includes broad introduction through theoretical lectures to: site specific art; process art; art in public spaces; earth works; deconstructive tendencies; video art; relational aesthetics; and performance art. The relationship between visual media and architecture will also be explored and contextualised, as will the relationship between curating and site specific visual media objects. Researching a large project and the appropriate use of materials techniques and processes will also be covered. With approval some students majoring in two and three-dimensional work may wish to collaborate on a single project. Through an understanding of the Superfiction, other students may present a small part of a much bigger project including research plans and models.
