Abstract

With the aim of shedding light on practical procedures of imagination, this paper is focusing on the analysis of experimental drawing processes. They were conducted in order to provide a basis for the discussion of the relationship between the gesture of drawing and the dispositions of the designer formed by inherited conditions, the socio-cultural framework and individual experiences (Damasio, 1999). With this approach of practice-led iconic research, it is not the goal to develop generalized descriptions for any innovation process as the Design Methods Movement of the 1960s once proposed, but to differentiate between conditions supporting or inhibiting the development of surprising and intriguing images for various contexts. The drawing experiments and their discussion provide insights into the workshop of imagination.

The Search of the Unpredictable – the Process of Drawing

With the aim of shedding light on practical procedures of imagination, this paper is focusing on the analysis of experimental drawing processes. They were conducted in order to provide a basis for the discussion of the relationship between the gesture of drawing and the dispositions of the designer formed by inherited conditions, the socio-cultural framework and individual experiences (Damasio, 1999). With this approach of practice-led iconic research, it is not the goal to develop generalized descriptions for any innovation process as the Design Methods Movement of the 1960s once proposed, but to differentiate between conditions supporting or inhibiting the development of surprising and intriguing images for various contexts. The drawing experiments and their discussion provide insights into the workshop of imagination.
