Course contents

The course includes an evaluation and synthesis of all the knowledge and experience gained. It inspires students to deepen their work with the topic in other projects or in their approach to them. It broadens the listener's understanding of contemporary issues in the presentation and application of their own projects. In the area of technical processing and adaptation, it focuses primarily on the ideation and ideal form the resulting project may take, but it is focused on technical feasibility, to which the listener seeks opportunities outside the field of photography (collaboration with graphic designers, programmers, new media specialists, etc., collaboration in practical implementation workshops, etc.).

1-4 - gradual application and synthesis of the work with the theme into the actual project and its final form with continuous work with overlap, possible application within the visual arts or in related disciplines

5 - adaptation and installation

6 - defence and verbal explanation before the commission
