Keynote Speaker announced for Drawing Out: 2012 – Janet McKenzie

Keynote speaker abstract and author information, Dr Janet McKenzie, research fellow, University of Dundee.

Paper title: Drawing as discovery.

Discovery as both process and destination (verb and noun) is itself a metaphor for drawing, in that drawing in contemporary art practice is multi-faceted, exploratory, free from art-historic convention, or technical definition. It is appropriate that this conference should take place in London whilst two great artists in this country are being celebrated: Lucian Freud, who died last year, and the energetic and inventive, David Hockney. I cannot think of any other artists of recent history and the present whose oeuvre displays the magnificent and varied invention of the drawn image in the hands of a truly great practitioner, the physical act of drawing, the psychological and intellectual journey taken by two artists in one of the simplest, most primal of forms – observational, naturalistic, surreal and dream-like, tender, heart-rending, funny and quintessentially human. After I was invited to write this new book on contemporary Australian drawing, and as I steeped myself in the literature of Australian art of the past 25 years since I left, I had several strong experiences. When colleagues, friends et al asked me what I was doing, I found myself saying, “it’s Australian, but Australia is a concentrated global culture”. The population there being made up descendants of the original white settlers, there are also historic waves of migrants, from all parts of the world. What distinguishes Australia from other new world countries is the spectacular industry of art made by the aboriginal and Torres strait islanders, of great interest internationally, and whose work occupies a pivotal position in Australian culture today. Among many issues to address are those of cultural bricolage and the resultant visual dynamism, which is central to much of their work, alongside the fundamental struggle for identity and survival. In a recent interview I was very pleased to hear the claim that “all aboriginal art is drawing,” for all aboriginal art has a directness of transmission, unlike traditional western art that is built up in layers. Significant mark-making is critical in the assertion of cultural loss and the historic legacy all Australians must strive to reconcile. At drawing out, I will show the work of artists whose work can be described as embracing aspects of notation, discovery, identity, writing and recording, always against a global background. Their work I have found enables the extension of definitions of the boundaries of culture, to explore the complex and remarkable interaction that takes place now more than ever before.

Janet McKenzie grew up in Australia and was educated at the Australian national university in art history and philosophy. She taught at the Canberra school of art, the Victorian college of the arts and college of fine art, university of new south Wales. Her first book, Drawing in Australia: Contemporary Images and Ideas (Macmillan 1986) sought to examine perceptual drawing, observing then: “drawing reveals the subtlest movement, the most clinical analysis, the most precise drama. Modern drawing gives room for alternative reactions – functions assumed by different signs are at once explicit and suggestive. In this sense drawing is as much a record of the subtler elements in our culture as any written or verbal record”. In 1986 Janet McKenzie married architect Michael Spens and moved to Scotland, the following year. Whilst raising a family her studio practice was primarily painting. She also continued writing and publishing and completed her doctorate at the university of St Andrews on the art of Arthur Boyd, under the supervision of professor martin Kemp, published by Thames and Hudson (2000). She has co-edited studio international with Michael Spens since 2000. Her most recent publication contemporary Australian drawing, a study of 78 artists (metasenta/palgrave Macmillan,) will be launched at the university of the arts, London at drawing out, 31 March 2012. In 2011, Janet McKenzie embarked on drawing on two worlds, a practice-led research project using collaborative drawing to explore issues of identity and dispossession in Scotland and Australia. She is senior research fellow at the university of Dundee.

More Information:

The premise that now drives The Drawn Out Network  and Conferences was  seeded  during the  first cross disciplinary    UAL / RMIT  drawing meeting  held in Melbourne during March 2010 . That meeting  resulted in  us  wanting to better understand ,  in the first instant, drawings’ relationship with writing and notation; knowledge, then through that knowledge hopefully better understanding   drawings’ position  as an active component of general literacy.

With drawing established in the minds of the organizers as the tangible bridge between textural and non textural communication our collaboration  resolved to  develop a network of interested parties.

Working with the assumption that drawing is not simply a way of thinking and communicating  but an integral part of our everyday and professional lives DRAWING OUT: 2012  will address, how drawing  functions as a part of  literacy  through three themes;

1.  Drawing  and  Notation. Drawing as a sometimes intuitive other times  driven by  convention  means of mapping   appearance  and movement  . With special reference to innovative methods of notation .

2. Drawing  as Writing Drawing after, before and as a part of writing. An exploration of literacy and communication.

3. Drawing: recording and discovery. Drawing as a speculative activity and means of  holding and transferring information.

Abstract: Emotional Mapping

Every human perceives urban space differently. Some places are seen to be unsafe, others as especially beautiful. This perception is subjective and emotions of the person influence it. The research domain on emotional mapping deals with collecting subjective perception of space and deriving maps of it. This can be done by applying different methodologies, such as interviewing a group of test persons about their emotional relations and combining all their answers and drawings into relevant databases and maps.

In this contribution the current status of a project called “EmoMap” will be presented.  In this project we try to use the option of volunteered geographic information (VGI) to collect emotional views cities by allowing users of a Web 2.0 community to contribute and share their emotions. The data collection will be done in-situ with current smartphones. Compared to the traditional method this brings the advantage that the collected data is of a more punctual type, e.g. an emotion is not associated with a large area but a point or a small area. Also, the data of many different users can be stored independently without the need to make an aggregation towards one average data set. This allows findings on how specific groups of users perceive their environment, e.g. people of type A think this place is unsafe. This information can be used to design user-adaptive mobility services. For EmoMap we focus on using the collected data for modified route calculation in pedestrian navigation systems. The hereby developed methods and algorithms will then be tested for the hypothesis that the inclusion of emotional data can improve user satisfaction.  All VGI collected during the project EmoMap will be stored in an open online database (OpenEmotionMap.org). Privacy concerns will be addressed.

OpenEmotionMap will we open for other projects and can be used, filled and developed by the community continually.
