Introduction to Digital Media Processes - lecture by Richard Mulhearn, Friday 20th of January 2017

An overview of this new digital media processes module TMA 1407 was given during this lecture and included general observations and feedback from our previous module. Overall our individual critical voices seem to be lacking in some of the feedback that we had given for the previous module. The main issues of our presentations seemed to be a lack of comparative analysis with other practitioners and the demonstration of our ability to pick through a multitude of viewpoints. This critical analysis is key to develop as a master student.

In this new module, digital media practice, the critical outcomes will be;

A) analysis! The clear articulation of our practice, including the what and why certain things were done and ask yourself again? Why?

B) know your audience, is it working for them?
Who are you trying to engage with?
Develop the critical life from a different point of view.

C) demonstrate "what has gone before and what is your relationship with it"?
How will the work that is historical influence what will you will do in future?
What are the new meanings in your work that you derive from your practice?

D) demonstrate and provide evidence of your research.
Your research should be informed, intuitive clear experimentation.
This is necessary in order for students to approach the final major project.
By expanding the scope of your research, you can then spend more time in practice and be more critically reflective to position your work correctly.
Be selective again! Describe what and why in your research and practice!

E) it will be necessary to write a critical reflective summary again for this module which outlines your individual process and direction to create a framework for practice.

F) this is a clear requirement to evidence your critical analysis of your individual processes and outcomes.

Overall the module requires an approximate word count equivalent of 9000 words including the presentation and portfolio.

Formative presentations will be conducted on 17 February 2017,

Summative presentations will be presented on 5 May 2017.

In order to meet this module objectives correctly, it is extremely encouraged to create an individual study plan.

  • Develop your own project brief;
  • explain different processes and outcomes
  • contexts and platforms for your work to develop.
  • Demonstrate divergent and heterodox practice.

The critical reflective summary should be created early, to test your ideas.
Referencing of all research articles must be correct to the APA 6th edition
& the presentation should be clear in a specified manner.

  • Overall the focus is on creating a distillation of what is important? 
  • And why? 
  • What in my own practice needs to change in order for this distillation to be done demonstrated?

By creating and continuing a line of enquiry from which work later emerged emerges.
