Mechanical Practices in Contemporary Drawing Methods
In this blog my aim is to explore the methods currently being employed by artists exploring their practice through the use of drawing. I wish to explore the areas of mechanical drawing methods, repetitive mark making, doodling and automatic drawing. I wish to explore this in regards to advances in drawing machines and in particular the use of robotics. I'll start this blog with a first example of Fernando Orellanas work, as visited the University recently and gave a very inspireing workshop and lecture. I would also view my enquiries as reactionary to this style of drawing.
