About this Unit
In contemporary society, knowledge is increasingly produced and communicated through visual media. How individuals and organisations use visual images and media to represent themselves requires interpretation. Issues to be studied will address key competencies required of individuals in their professional and personal lives, such as: How does one interpret the flow of images presented in daily life in media, including newspapers, books, the web, television and film? What is the relation of images in fine art (painting, drawing and sculpture) to new media? Students will learn methodologies to answer these questions with critical insight and informed judgement.
