Subject Description
Employing a transdisciplinary approach, this subject aims to establish a site for creative dialogue and collaboration between writing and image-making. Students produce project work that explores innovative associations between the written word and the visual image. This is informed by an investigation of relevant traditions of creative practice, including concrete poetry, conceptual art, the graphic novel and interactive fiction. This subject will prove valuable to students who have a key interest in the intersections between language and image in contemporary creative practice.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. demonstrate an understanding of the creative practitioner as collaborator and author
2. negotiate the form and theme of a creative project within a team
3. effectively communicate with others in a studio workshop setting
4. articulate a deeper understanding of frameworks that govern relationships between image and word
