About this subject
At the completion of this subject students will be able to:
- research and analyse relevant theory and precedents in relation to light, relevant technologies and the future of light
- adapt and transform existing methods to design, create and assemble an object
- incorporate ethical and sustainable work practices working independently and collaboratively in the production of objects
- communicate conceptual intent through the construction of an object using new technologies of light, making and construction
- Phenomenology of Light;
- Laser Cutting and CNC Routing;
- 3D Printing;
- Model Making.
This innovative subject examines narratives of occupation, of use, and of making, as embedded in designed products that constitute the interior. Through a series of explorations and testings, students use technology to create a prototype object that has purpose and feasibility for the design industry. Emphasis is placed upon future-thinking and finding simple ways to communicate narratives of construction, use, and occupation. Practices of environmental sustainability are also considered in students’ final products.
