This is a self-initiated thesis project[s] that encompasses theoretical and practical design practice. It allows the student to research and develop an area of interest, providing the opportunity to demonstrate ideas and abilities in a study, which is negotiated and progressed, in breadth and depth. It also requires the student to plan and develop a proposal/brief, based upon the synthesis of exploration, ideation, and research. Students are required to manage and communicate, their processes, while developing an individually negotiated approach to a design question or issue, which will be documented through research/reflective journals and technical notebooks were applicable.

The Collection pathway challenges you to consider approaches to body, gender, age, and size, amongst others, in order to develop new narratives, definitions and terminologies within a clearly defined visual aesthetic beyond traditional contexts. Deep exploration in terms of research and process towards unexpected outcomes across gender is encouraged. Students are encouraged to redefine the meaning of a collection.
