The Monograph recognises the primacy of practice as the decisive motivation for student practitioners. Our students are ‘practical theorists’, for they reflexively theorise through and from the practical experience of making work. Typically, this process results in diverse outcomes embodied as objects, artefacts, images, writing and speech. The Monograph’s integration of theory with the studio experience strengthens the relevance and the meanings students are able to grasp and articulate. By broadening the definition of what theory can be for practitioners, and allowing the dynamic nature of studio practice to drive theoretical interests, the Monograph is increasing students’ confidence and capacity to theorise.
