This drawing installation was created as part of Drawing Month 2014 at the Adelaide Central School of Art, South Australia. The work incorporates graphite, thread, drafting film and lead weights, working directly onto the walls and in the space. This work is part of my current PhD research being undertaken at the University of Tasmania, "Navigating the unknown through place, space and drawing." The primary focus of my project is to investigate how drawing based methodologies might present experience of the unknown. The drawing based languages and systems of navigation and cartography will be used to explore experience of the unknown in relation to place and space. The research seeks to establish that the unknown is a key motivator within drawing based enquiry and indeed the intuitive and largely embodied processes of art making. The anticipated body of work will aim to reveal the significance of gaps within and between systems of knowing, presenting the unknown as a necessary ambiguous space allowing for potential, thought and engagement. The work will investigate connections between notions of the unknown in drawing practice, maritime navigation and cartography as locative systems and practices. The main objective of the research is to consider how the unknown may be physically and conceptually manifest through the explorative practice of drawing and its use as a means of encountering place and space.
