Foundation Creative Practice


Creative Practice explores how design objects work and make meaning in their various, interrelating contexts, including personal, social, cultural, economic and technological ones. This subject contains a series of creative projects that are informed by historical and formal research and human-centred and speculative design approaches. Students visit a variety of Sydney museums and galleries to research the biographies of existing objects, use the Australian Design Centre’s Object Therapy project to create a re-imagined object, and use Futures Thinking theory to create an object from the future. This work will give students the opportunity to deepen their conceptions of their chosen design field and begin to shape their own, unique design practice.
