Essay drawings on vellum and digital film
Between the Retina and the Dome, 2018 (animation: John Cruwys; Sound design: Kevin Pollard) and With-drawing Room on Vellum, 2016 (animation: TJ Brook Lin) are essayist drawings that consider the impact of digital technology on architectural representation through the use of medieval drawing materials and techniques combined with digital film and projection. By bringing together vellum (animal skin) and gilding in precious metals – as the forgotten, visceral past – and digital projection – as the uncertain evanescent future of architectural drawing surface – my drawings probe and challenge the current tendency for drawing to withdraw from the skin of the world.
