Content
This unit explores art and the environment through time-based and socially-engaged art. Students build on the conceptual knowledge and technical skills already acquired and extend their specialisation by engaging a wide array of time-based methods, including performance and social practice. In this structured studio-based unit, students produce projects within an environmental context, ultimately working towards developing an independent work practice and initiating their own projects. Student work produced in both the studio and in the field is supported by engaging texts which examine issues in environmental art through a social lens. Students expand their knowledge by participating in group critiques, class discussions and field trips. This is the second unit in the Art & Environment specialisation for students enrolled in the Fine Arts Major.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) discuss your creative practice in relation to historical and contemporary contexts of environmental-related art; (2) apply appropriate methods and strategies to aid the effective development and execution of your creative work; (3) articulate a clear and comprehensive creative concept which is verified during development and resolution; (4) demonstrate technical competency in the realisation of your creative work; (5) apply creative and critical processes to the development of your ideas and creative work through reflection on your art practice; and (6) communicate information, ideas and proposals effectively in written, oral and creative modes.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) creative work; (2) written work; and (3) weekly work. 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.
