Drawing by the light of the screen: the transfiguration of virtual architecture
This practice-led art project interrogates virtual architectural space and its impact upon spatial representation in traditional drawing. Taking the virtual architectural model as subject, a drawing practice is developed through which an ontological examination of issues around spatiality, temporality and embodiment may be conducted. Drawing is posited as a surface in a mimetic relationship to the screen of technology, and the possibility that it may act as a locus for a dialogue around failure and underachievement in the handmade is explored. Consideration is also given to the idiosyncrasies of the virtual image and their translation into traditional drawing media, and to the possibility for drawing to generate an aporia between the virtual and the tangible.
