2013 UTS Photography and Situated Media Graduate Exhibition
The Bachelor of Design in Photography and Situated Media was founded as a new degree within the school of Design at the University of Technology, Sydney in 2010. The Degree was established to bring together a number of photography subjects that were scattered amongst several other disciplines.
The aim of the degree is to strengthen the faculty's research into photography and to expand it into other areas that explore the image. And in four years, there has been a rapid evolution in the maturity and diversity of the degree.
The students have fully embraced the duality of photography and situated media and have expressed this in the diversity of their work. They move seamlessly across digital and analogue media, from the photography to the moving image and from the narrative to the abstract. The work shifts from the flat image to the spatial, and back again.
This book embodies the experimental nature of PSM and reflects the dedication to aesthetics and the contemporary. But more importantly, it puts the collection of work at the forefront, allowing it to live beyond the walls and the spaces of the exhibition. Ultimately, the reader can fully appreciate what the students set out to accomplish.
