Drawing Vignettes

This proposal will introduce Drawing Vignettes as a significant new creative method that challenges distinctions between the disciplines of drawing and writing to instead unite their vocative and interpretative possibilities to foster alternative speech modes. This position will be used to further discuss a union of theory and practice, drawing upon Davey’s theoria (2006) of theory and practice as interchangeable discourses that have fluid modes of speech. This position will be discussed through examples and performances of Drawing Vignettes as a hybrid that acknowledges the limits and potentials of its materials, asking how these can be reinterpreted and by doing so enables a new poetic vocative practice to emerge.
