VART3225 Hybrid Printmaking (3 units)
- VART2227 Printmaking or (VART2517 Screen Printing Basics and VART2525 Advanced Screen Printing) or (VART2526 Relief Printing and VART2527 Intaglio Printing: Etching)
Individual expressions of ideas and concepts in the printmaking studio used to be a domain of earlier print technologies like relief, intaglio, screen-printing and/or lithography, while technologies like photographic printing allowed a more mechanical approach. Most recently digital code is used to operate modern inkjet, dye sublimation and laser processes. All of these technologies rely on and produce printed results that can be affected and manipulated by the visual artist.
Hybrid Imaging reflects the interplay of manual and mechanical formats in printmaking and surfaces. It experiments with contemporary combinations of print formats to produce multilayered explorations of the image, line, colour field, marks, visual expression and other contemporary hybrid identities. In its results it produces images based on personally developed, unique hybrid techniques of various forms of printmaking.
By understanding the characteristics of traditional and modern techniques and applications, students are enabled to expand the possibility of image making by transforming the use of printmaking in their own project. The processes of research, visual documentation, evaluation of outcomes and presentation of results contextualize and expose the impact that images have on our daily life in a metropolitan environment.
