This programme comprises two parts:

Part A is a one hour lecture examining the phenomenon of the photograph as it relates to particular artists and art movements intrinsic to the history and contemporary understanding of the Photographic.

Part B comprises a series of three hour project based classes consisting of screenings and discussions focussing on a series of Problem Set assignments that students submit each week. The Problem Sets locate an emphasis on focused and intensive experimental work that develops image generating abilities, observational skills and the articulation of these through conceptual strategies. Resolution of set projects may include photographic or video formats or a combination of the two. Work may involve both individual or collaborative processes. The Problem Sets emphasise conceptual processes, feeling, observation and action in the development of new ideas and modes of expression.

Subject outcomes may include video and photos that incorporate another medium as their premise such as text, performance, sound, sculpture and/or painting.
