New Foundation Portfolio Requirements

Posted: Fri, 2013-09-06 10:43

Foundation portfolio submissions will now focus on one central project, rather than a series of pieces. This special project will reflect the individual relationship to and existence in community, and how it affects a personal creative practice. The project should incorporate a range of media, including (but not limited to) film, illustration, communication design, integrated media, photography, painting, creative writing, sound design, performance, drawing, video, industrial design, sculpture, interaction design and ceramics. For full details on required portfolio content for all prospective undergraduate students, please click here.

A typewritten 500 – 650 word statement to support the project will also be required. In addition to this, students should also submit pages from their sketchbooks to show their research and documentation for this project. All works must be submitted online via SlideRoom, with up to 20 slides in total.
