My practice-based research explores Heidegger’s interpretation of techne as a mode of knowing to drawing. I am interested in encounters with objects, Harman described as human, non-human, natural, cultural, real or fictional in an artist led pedagogical space. I will be exploring a new way of understanding drawing, through encounters with objects where ‘technical’ proficiency loses its primacy to creativity.
Central to this investigation will be to reconnect people who have come to believe they ‘can’t draw’, whose educational experiences have contributed to a particular perception of drawing valued for its precise adeptness and introduce them to new inclusive modes of drawing so that they can in fact draw.
