The subject is closely linked to other subjects of the Master's practice. Its purpose is to prepare students for projects in the field of artistic research, extending the use of the visual arts into other areas. The listener uses and works independently with experience from previous cycles, especially in the methodology of working on a project, justifying it, putting it in context and creating a functional timetable for the work. The result is a project that can be presented in the form of a process or a partial deliverable with emphasis on presenting the overall concept of the project.

1 - introduction to the topic - inspirational sources, related and related projects

2 - joint consultation - preparation for the study trip, plans, ideas, intentions, possibilities - preparation of a realistic flexible creative plan

3 - intensive work and regular joint consultations during the study trip, workshop or camp

4 - feedback, evaluation of the progress of the work - presentation of the author's projects in the process

5 - individual consultation

6 - presentation of the final form of the achieved results

Learning outcomes

The student is able to work independently with the experience from previous cycles of practice, develop this experience independently and apply it in the implementation and presentation of his/her own project.
