Description

This subject is a part of Communication, Expression and Documentation and it aims to provide students with the tools to communicate their work through audiovisual and graphic media in an effective, precise and creative way in their professional practice. It enables them to understand that the visualization supports and work documentation are also the means of shaping the practice and not a mere recording tool. Students will be presented with different approaches to the matter which will be treated through specific practical exercises, focused on exploring concrete problems and experimenting with different analog and digital tools. The proposals will be contextualized through historical and theoretical frameworks that enable situating each practice in relation to its tradition and contemporary languages, with specific referents and the analysis of its different physical, aesthetic and cultural dimensions.
