Put Drawing to Sleep

Conference paper


The type of drawing required to activate the creative process is a specific type of drawing, not descriptive or deductive, but instead performative. Draw as a projecting action and projecting as a drawing manifestation, is the reality in which drawing is considered as activating emergence. Its specificity requires an attention from the action and from the pedagogical framework.
