Graphic Anthropology II workshop

Graphic Anthropology II workshop

KFI Project are hosting a 2 day workshop with Jen Clarke, Ray Lucas, Heather Lynch, and Mitch Mills.

Graphic Anthropology Workshop II The objects of drawing in time.

 Venue: Seminar Room, 24 High Street

Date: January 20th and 21st 2016  

The workshop will explore, through practical activities as well as group discussion, questions around the object or intent of drawing, mark-making, or inscriptive practices (however broadly you approach this). The aim is to build on the very open and broadly methodological approaches we explored in the fantastic workshop Aina organised, which focused on drawing for anthropology/anthropologists. 

While not trying to circumscribe meaning(s), I am interested in paying closer attention to questions raised in our workshops that concern the different sorts of intentions and responsibilities involved in what we might broadly call ‘graphic anthropology’.  

We will explore these questions by considering how different approaches and methods permit different kinds of knowing and forms of knowledge, a whole ecology of practices. We are extremely fortunate to be able to consider these issues with Ray, Heather, and Mitch, who have particularly rich trans-/ multi-disciplinary practices. 

Thus, we will play with the idea of drawing as object : thinking of ‘object’ as both a material (?) thing, as well as something aimed at; making the object object! My hope is that we will come to this with an awareness of diverse approaches to drawing(s).

We will primarily work through practical activities devised and led by Ray, Heather, and Mitch. At the same time, we will also draw in / on some 'theoretical' interests. 

The second theme, which emerges directly from my fieldwork, will be to explore some of the relationships between drawing and time (or temporalities), as a way to work through and think about affects and effects within a particular environment. For example, we might consider drawing as a way of imagining the future in visions or visualisations with very specific agendas, or experimenting with the limits of media for what we want to think of as drawing. 

These ideas follow my current collaboration with Heather, and ongoing work with Ray, here and in Japan, called ‘A taxonomy of Lines. The workshop also allows us to bring in and learn more about Mitch’s unique approach to what he calls ‘dialectograms’ that we were recently introduced to.
