This unit is the second core Level 1 studio-based unit for students enrolled in the Fine Arts major and advances the foundational skills, knowledge and techniques introduced in the Semester 1 unit, Fine Arts Studio: Record, Visualise & Imagine. In this unit we focus on the fundamentals of Fine Arts practice by utilising mediums, methods and techniques that engage with the concepts of time, space and narrative. Students work with both traditional and new media technologies to create time-based art that responds to and engages with our rapidly changing world. This unit familiarises students with the core stages of producing and developing an art work including ideation, prototyping and final execution.
Students are able to (1) communicate the practical and conceptual aspects of your creative work; (2) apply a range of basic technical skills in the making of art objects and time-based creative work; (3) demonstrate an expanded awareness of the creative possibilities of time-based mediums; (4) demonstrate development of the ability to critically reflect on your creative work; and (5) communicate information and ideas effectively in written, oral and creative modes.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) creative work; (2) written work; and (3) oral presentation(s). Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit except in the case of a bachelor's pass degree student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 overall and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.
