Fieldnotes and Sketchbooks

Challenging the Boundaries Between Descriptions and Processes of Describing

Author: Wendy Gunn

Publisher: Peter Lang

Every description of the world we inhabit embodies certain processes of describing. In "Fieldnotes and Sketchbooks" researchers from the fields of anthropology, architecture and fine art reflect on the descriptive practices characteristic of their respective disciplines, and the potential of alternative modalities of description to challenge the boundaries that divide them. Contributors focus on the interconnections between writing, imaging, drawing and reading, exploring the many ways in which different media and notational systems can be used in contexts of learning to facilitate the movement of knowledge across the three disciplines.

Publisher: Rockport Pub

Category: Art

Page: 192

View: 4843

This book explores influential designers’ sketchbooks as a truer reflection of a designer’s thought processes, preoccupations, and problem-solving strategies than can be had by simply viewing finished projects. Highly personal and idiosyncratic, sketchbooks offer an arena for unstructured exploration, a space free from all budgetary and client constraints. Visually arresting objects in their own right, this book aims to elevate sketches from mere ephemera to important documents where the reader can glean valuable insight into the creative process, and apply it to their own practices. Featured designers include Ralph Caplan, Nigel Holmes, Chris Bigg, Eva Jiricna, Jason Munn, Gary Baseman, Marian Bantjes, and many others.

This book shows how to use an artist's sketchbook in a new way. Instead of the "classic" idea of an artist sketching in a sketchbook, the author shows how to use sketchbooks as a daily working tool. While they begin as a place to collect ideas and inspirations, readers learn how those collections, scraps, ideas, and doodles can lead directly to, and fuel ideas for future mixed media paintings. Specific how to's, techniques, creative prompts, and project ideas are introduced in each chapter to guide the reader through creating individual works of art which launch from a variety of themes. Each chapter includes an interview with well-known artists and bloggers who will share a peek into their sketchbooks and journals and readers will learn how they stay inspired and creative. This is an inspiring and fresh collection of photographs, ideas, and projects that the reader can use on their own to create their own sketchbooks and mixed media works of art whether they are a seasoned artist or someone just starting out on their creative journey.
