I have been selected to deliver a Petcha Kutcha presentation at the 'Visionaries Symposium.' Entitled ‘Illustrator as Detective: Discovery through
Drawing' my presentation explores a drawing project and exhibition I am currently undertaking at the Museum of East Asian Art, Bath that interrogates concepts of illustrator
and illustration as visionary. I will explore
the idea of innovation, revolution and
discovery as I act as detective and interpret objects through the process
of drawing. The
project explores ideas of future thinking
in educational and professional developments, as the drawings act as
functional and democratic means to communicate my personal responses to objects,
and in turn challenge personal and studied responses from the public. Future thinkingin educational and professional developments is also explored
through the display of work, as drawings are displayed in cabinets in
direct juxtaposition with objects, and will be exhibited throughout different
Speakers include Matthew Richardson, Gareth Proskourine-Barnett, Rachel Gannon, Darryl Clifton, Richard Miles, Andrew Kulman and Andy Davies. Petcha Kutcha presentations from Alice Moloney, Christian Lloyd, Jo Berry, Jo Hassel, Chloe Regan, Gary Powell and Aiden Winterburn.
Visionaries 2 day illustration research event 5th/6th November 2015 at Birmingham City University
Meet fellow illustration academics over a two day symposium in November in Birmingham and enjoy the talks presented by practitioners and academics on the illustrated map as a mode of communication, tracing the link between visionary J.G. Ballard and the cultural and virtual fabric of 2015, drawing and the digital networks of the contemporary urban landscape, revisiting the vision of the original Association of Illustrators committee, and imagining an alternative future for arts education. A film on the manifestations of vision in contemporary illustration practice will also be presented.
This event will investigate the way visionary approaches are able to expand the way we perceive the world, and also how influences from the past continue to resonate today. Illustrators, students and academics are all welcome.
