Plastic Art and Mixed Media
Plastic Art and Mixed Media focuses on molding production and research/production using a range of media, based on the arts of the 20th century. Specifically, it advances study/production based on the theories learned through Introduction to Plastic Art and Mixed Media, Contemporary Art, etc. offered at the School of the University of Tsukuba, and on the practices/practicums of game devices and electronic images.
Since there are many students from other universities in the first year, the division assigns students “Special Lecture on Plastic Art and Mixed Media” as well as “Practicums for Presentation of Production/Study of Plastic Art and Mixed Media” as the extension of education at the School/department of university, in order to understand and organize the concept of contemporary art, and to determine a study theme.
In the second year, the division leads students to finish the graduation thesis/production through studies and productions based on their respective study themes.
The study themes presented in the past have been diverse, including the theoretical study of contemporary arts, molding production, object production, kinetics, computers, videos, etc., but have also included live performances and installations.
