Studies and Reflections on Drawing and Image

2nd series, nº 5

The next issue of PSIAX journal focuses on the question: “Transversal uses of drawing: Pedagogy, Project and Research“.

What drawings allow us to exemplify, question and communicate? Whether as an experience of visualisation, anticipation or questioning, drawing exists beyond the artistic project.

Just as there are drawings that result from the observation of the existing reality, there are drawings that imagine what was or will have been, and drawings that allow us to see what never existed, but there are also others that show what may come to exist, and those that configure the hypothetical or the unperceivable.

It is on the use and operation of drawing that we intend to show the various disciplines and functions where drawing is present.
