Applied Design 1 is an Art based course of an experimental nature, both in two and three dimensions. A practical course which explores the visual language and its significance to culture and society.  Emphasis is given primarily to solutions mostly geared towards sculptural design nevertheless it opens up the awareness for unlimited art and design applications using a combination of materials.

Students in this course are faced with a variety of problems and challenges in terms of thinking and conceptualizing. They are also faced with the technical side of the challenge, like making different materials to work together, using hand and power tools and also finding practical solutions to their ideas and their 2-D designs. Research and a lot of rough work is required.

Students are required to do an extensive research on any aspect of relocation/displacement subject that interests them. As a result of their research do a series of drawings and/or collage works related to their topic documenting the act of relocation/displacement and its affect. This will form the basis of their final work.

Students produce a final work based on the exploratory study and body of research they have conducted. They use any media and format
