Studio Description and Site Archive

2020 :: Semester Two Online COVID semester

Students and studio leaders alike rose to the occasion and in many ways surpassed this year’s difficult situation. Multiple times a week we heard about new ways of making films, recording podcasts, developing social media and building careers out of adversity. Ingenious methods of teaching, research and collaboration were developed by staff and students that will stay with us well beyond the pandemic.

Please enjoy engaging with the studio’s exhibition sites from semester 2 and below that from semester 1
