                Assignment One


Students create an artwork of religious content expressing the individual ideas of the religious art form from a shocking point of view, provoking and challenging the viewer to think on different levels.

Refer to the comments made by Mr Trotter and the Youtube videos and comments:
"They tell us secrets of our hearts which religious traditions may not permit us to confess...?”
What does he mean by this and how do you interpret this visually?


Students must provide lead-up work in their Visual Arts Process Diary, along with other lead-up work, an
other work produced and not submitted as an artwork must be available, to verify and provide further evidence of a student’s artmaking.


 

Students will practice in preliminary stage HSC course prescriptions and adhere to follow the overall limitations on size and weight to create your artworks.

These rules apply to all bodies of work submitted for the HSC Visual Arts course and should be strictly adhered to. Failure to comply with these rules could penalise marks awarded to students.

• Individual works within a body of work must not exceed 2 square metres in area. This applies to flat, rigid works and includes works that may form part of a series.


• A body of work must not exceed 6 minutes running time.


• Individual works, within a body of work, exceeding 2 square metres and up to 6 square metres must be rolled.


• A body of work in its entirety must not exceed 34.4 kilogrammes in weight when packed for marking.


• A body of work must not exceed 1 cubic metre in volume. This measurement means that:


The absolute volume of any three-dimensional work must not be more than 1 cubic metre. In determining this volume, the height is the perpendicular height of the work when displayed for marking. The width is the measurement taken at the two furthest points and the breadth is the measurement taken at right angles to the width. The width X breadth X height (measured in metres) must not exceed 1 cubic metre. (Positive and negative areas are calculated in this measurement).



• Lead-up work in a student’s Visual Arts Process Diary, along with other lead-up work, and other work produced and not submitted as the body of work, must be available, if required in the event of appeals, to verify and provide further evidence of a student’s artmaking.


• Individual works must not be framed under glass or rigid plastic sheeting.


• Dangerous materials must not be used. Any HSC Body of Work submission that may be considered dangerous to health or safety may not be marked or returned to schools if marked in corporate marking. Any individual work within a Body of Work considered dangerous to health or safety may not be unpacked for corporate marking or may not be marked in itinerant marking. Works considered dangerous could include those with faulty electrical wiring and those which incorporate very sharp points or cutting edges such as glass, mirror fragments, barbed wire, rusty corrugated iron and/or broken machinery. Hypodermic

syringes, needles, bodily secretions and blood products must not be included in any artworks.


• Submissions involving a high voltage electrical current (e.g., 240 volts) must carry a certificate for electrical safety. Any electrical wiring necessary for artworks should be undertaken by suitably qualified personnel. Details and records of such work should also be noted in students’ diaries.


• Items within a body of work must be able to be safely and reasonably handled by one person.


• Works must be stable in their construction to minimise any damage during handling.


• Mannequins must not be included with submissions of Wearables in the Designed Objects and Environments category.
