My fellow M.Des classmate Arlene introduced us to a really interesting idea today...she is creating a 'pilot drawing community' . This involves Arlene, who comes from a background in textile design, drawing all of us, tutors and visitors etc and then visually mapping out the sketches. Apart from being a very exciting visual project, I think it is a great experiment to encourage conversation and information exchange amidst our new classroom. It is all about creating 'links' between all the 'participants'. There is something about these little sketches that captivates me, I find her approach very honest and truthful. If drawing can even be such things? See more on Arlenes new blog.
