Intermedia Art operates within a Fine Art context and is the area of artistic practice that lies between different media. During the late 20th century, developments within visual art introduced new processes and situations, which resulted in an expanded concept of artistic practice. For example, the legacies of installation, ambient/site-specific work, video, sound, performance, immersive artworks and conceptual art resulted in a new context for artistic practice that is no longer based upon individual mediums and the primacy of vision, but is rather the product of crossing boundaries between media. Students and staff often create new methods of working through blurring these distinct practices.
Entry to second year is available.The same qualifications are required, plus successful completion (at Merit grade) of an art foundation programme, or equivalent.
Students pay material costs of between £30 - £200 p/yr depending on the programme. In 2011 the average cost was £100 for Years 2,3 and 4 and £50 for Year 1.
Some programmes will offer fieldwork. There is no additional contribution required to the teaching costs involved, but for the residential fieldwork and individual field-based projects, students are usually required to cover accommodation, subsistence and the costs of travel to the fieldwork location. The actual student contribution depends on the degree programme involved and the courses selected.
Each of our four-year BA (Hons) degrees in art or design shares common elements of study during the early part of Year 1. Subsequently you will develop your creative, technical and intellectual ability through projects, installations and exhibitions.
You will be introduced to using multiple approaches to work, encompassing drawing, video, photography, sound recording, object construction, psycho-geography and other possibilities. A range of projects will emphasise production whilst introducing Intermedia strategies.
Your research will develop through choices of subject matter and a growing individuality of approach. You’ll work on site-specific projects and larger-scale work developing personal areas of interest both technically and intellectually, organising and researching your work in a professional manner.
You will pursue your own research interests, supported by studio staff. Creative ability and technical expertise is consolidated and extended, and the dissemination and site of artistic work gains greater importance.
