Study type Taught

Summary

This MA gives practitioners and theorists the opportunity to research and develop the new boundaries of image-making made possible by technological change within the context of post-industrial culture.

This programme joins theory and practice, equipping you to develop and achieve highly effectively in the new image media culture. Practice uses both digital and analogue technology, still and durational as well as the study and production of interactivity.

The programme allows for specialisation in photography and/or electronic arts – which, in addition to still photography, can include interactive, durational and internet work – but encompasses a broader interpretation of practice.

You'll look at the meaning, production and distribution of images, and the relationship between theory and practice in the context of debates about post-modernism and beyond.

You also participate in enabling sessions in photography:

- medium/large format cameras
- portable and studio lighting technologies and their use
- film technology
- cinematography
- digital imaging
- output systems and processes

and/or in electronic arts:

- computer and video graphics
- post-production
- computer-aided design
- digital publishing
- animation
- animatics
- 2D and 3D computer animation
- still and durational image production and manipulation
- web construction
- interactivity
