  • Overview

    Painting and Technology encourages you to consider technology's relationship to the evolution of painting through both historical and contemporary contexts. You will explore the influence of lens-based technologies, scopic devices that enhance vision and the proliferation of images generated through mechanical and electronic media. You will investigate the impact of technology's effect in developing alternative perceptual and material processes for contemporary painting. You will employ strategies of imaging, mediation and manipulation to experiment with new possibilities for painting in the digital age.
    The knowledge acquired in this studio course can be applied across a range of related BFA(Hons) and BMA(Hons) courses. This course complements the Year 2 Painting courses SART2400 Painting: Materiality and Construction, SART2402 Painting and the Body and SART2403 Painting: Space, Time and Place and prepares students for more advanced studies in the Year 3 level.
