Semester 1UWA (Perth)Face to face
Semester 2UWA (Perth)Face to face
The unit is taught in even-numbered years and facilitates students to actively integrate their knowledge of both art and science into their growing understanding of biological art.
Students are able to (1) progressively integrate their knowledge of both art and science into their growing understanding of biological art; (2) explore the nature of biological art and develop a growing understanding of some of its aesthetic, conceptual, social and ethical aspects; (3) understand some of the limitations of the use of the life science technologies in the production of biological art; and (4) understand and apply biological art as a communication tool.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) tutorial presentations; (2) tutorial participation; and (3) seminar summaries. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.

This unit has similar structure to APHB5519 Biological Art Integration Studies I, but the content is novel. Students should take both units over their degree, but the order is not important.
  • The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
  • All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
  • Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available via the Booktopia Textbook Finder, which has the functionality to search by course code, course, ISBN and title, and may also be posted or available at the appropriate school's administrative offices. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
