  • Overview

    This subject encourages thinking and writing in innovative and experimental ways. The laboratory is an environment working towards the networking of concepts, senses and practices. Students may compose in any medium or form they choose: fiction, non-fiction, screenwriting, graphic or multimedia, poetry, philosophical and ficto-critical writing or other innovative forms. The subject explores core themes from cultural, critical and literary debate, stressing ideas about contemporary experience in terms of the senses, media representations, the environment and in relation to key questions in critical, philosophical and art practice. Dissemination of student work is a core part of the subject's creative study, and students present their final work in a published, electronically published, screening, exhibition, seminar or performance context.
