For this individual project, you are asked to explore the theme, ‘the nature of curiosity’. The final work responds to this theme by exploring the use of electronic art, which may include physical computing, interactivity design, and/or audio-visual elements. It is vital that the work and its presentation consider audience experience. In response to the critique of your prototype, you may need to deepen your investigation, broaden your exploration, and consider the feedback received as well as your own experiences in bringing your project to completion. For this assessment point, you will install and present your completed project as a class accompanied by a written artist statement (200 words max) that contextualises you work in relation to contemporary media arts practice, and the aesthetic debates focusing on interaction and participation.
Planning is an important part of your project’s final presentation. Discuss your project with your tutor as it develops as well as present your progress to class in the later part of the session. You will find it useful to document your project’s research, conceptual development, and draft plans (e.g. advanced prototype/ model, diagram, drawings, photographs, equipment list, spatial requirement etc.) in your blog for these discussions.
