Works of art which depend on technology and have duration as a dimension.
The study of the effects of the physical environment on people's feelings and behaviour. It is an approach to geography that emphasizes playfulness and "drifting" around urban environments.
_computer based technologies
The practice of exploring the urban environment while being led by curiosity and a paused sense of time and place. While it is important to let your senses absorb the spaces around you, it is equally, if not more important to find yourself in new spaces, spaces stumbled upon by chance; paying attention to the smaller details, the lost objects, the signage, the fragments that make walking a reward in itself, with a slower pace and an increased opportunity to revel in the simple pleasures of things. A sense of wander/wonder is essential to find the simplicity in urban living. The Urban Dictionary
To produce an artwork in a time-based media and developmental work in response to the theme of psychogeography.
You are to gather a collection of visual research with this starting point in mind; think about how you can explore your surroundings in a completely new way. Think about how you can convey meaning through using basing visual concepts explored in the previous project. Your challenge is creating a thoughtful, experimental body of work in response to the brief, and further sourcing, editing and sequencing your chosen content into video form. You are to be as experimental with this process as you like. Consider how a series of images together in sequence might convey an idea or feeling.
There will be a demand that research is a driver for developing this project and your practice as an artist. You will be expected to analyse, interpret and respond to your research and you must take a much more active and independent role in furthering your subject knowledge. There is a requirement for you to be working outside of the given workshops on developing your work. You must demonstrate that you have read at least one text from the list in your reflective annotation.

assessment criteria & learning outcomes
On completion of this unit you should be able to:
_Use practical media and processes effectively, safely and creatively in responding to ideas and to given visual problems.
_Exercise a nuanced response to visual qualities and conceptual problems
_Provide evidence that you have considered and used basic concepts, understood and exploited methods intrinsic to the media and processes relevant to the expression of visual ideas.
_Demonstrate an awareness of visual qualities such as line, tone, pattern, colour, composition and that they have been used effectively and with a consideration for aesthetic qualities in responding to both visual and conceptual problems.
For next week:
_Aim for a 10 minute powerpoint presentation
_x3 proposed routes of study incorporating psychogeography
_supporting visual and theoretical research
