This unit introduces interdisciplinary design themes evident in the design process for positioning objects and ideas within the context of temporary environments. It involves a theoretical examination of appropriate techniques for the presentation of information and for user interaction, as well as the connections these have with both traditional and virtual display and with public art. Students will also be introduced to the practical and organisational logistics associated with managing exhibitions, temporary displays, and other major public events including staging.
On completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate an appreciation of the complexities associated with the presentation and display of both material and virtual artefacts;
2. Demonstrate an understanding of the ways an audience can be informed and engaged through display;
3. Demonstrate skills associated with directing and managing temporary design and installation; and
4. Demonstrate an appreciation of design of temporary environments as a multi-disciplinary activity.
