Content
In this unit students will continue to develop and extend their techno-scientific skills, knowledge and techniques acquired in Level 2 so that they can advance and refine their capacity to make art that is engaged with biotechnological expertise. Students will respond to our increasingly techno-scientific society by engaging with the aesthetic, cultural and ethical issues concerned with the use of biotechnologies in the creation of art. Students continue to cultivate their independent work practices, artistic research and concept development so that they can take greater command of the direction of their art in preparation for the capstone Advanced Major Project unit in Semester 2.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) locate your creative work within critical/theoretical, historical and contemporary contexts relevant to art and technology; (2) self-generate modes of creative inquiry using various approaches to support an individualised creative art practice; (3) produce a coherently evolving body of creative work that advances a personal vocabulary and vision; (4) demonstrate advanced technical mastery to articulate your creative work in the field of Art & Biotechnologies; (5) critically evaluate your practice within the relevant contemporary cultural, historical, social and professional contexts through the use of a range of presentation skills; and (6) synthesise critical and analytical thinking effectively in written, oral and creative modes.
Assessment
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.
