FBRE 212 - Mixed Media I (formerly Fibres + Mixed Media)
This course introduces students to the experimental stream within the Fibre program. It focuses on sculptural form and various approaches within as well as on the periphery of contemporary fibre practice. The course addresses 3-D forms and materials and their connection with specific content. There is an opportunity to explore various media and approaches including earthworks, installation, wearable art, performance, video, etc. In some assignments, a written component forms an integral part of the project. In addition, students will be required to present an individual research project. Course content will be provided through studio projects, demonstrations, lectures, discussions and critiques.
Completion of 24 credits from First Year Studies or equivalents or consent of the Chair in consultation with the instructor.
