“Why do I do this and you do that?”
MA Fine Art is an opportunity to look at the familiar with a fresh, perhaps oblique perspective in order to explore how “detour” permits “access”(Jullien 2004) to more subtle yet more complex interpretations. What constitutes a meaningful and useful research methodology in one culture may be considered unknown, unnecessary or redundant in another.
The MA Graphic Design course encourages designers to explore ways of developing understanding between co-communicators.
Our MA Illustration Course encourages you to question the nature of your practice and its context and position relative to the creative industries.
