Reflecting on drawing

Tavs Jorgensen

Has drawing changed in an age of digital technology? Debate around the value of drawing has gained impetus as creatives, including artists, designers and makers are increasingly exploring the potential of and are influenced by the burgeoning creative opportunities that digital technologies offer.

Originally trained as a craft potter, Tavs Jorgensen, through his more recent engagement with digital design and production technologies, has discovered that the notion of ‘drawing’ is now a much more significant issue in his practice.

The exhibition charts Jorgensen’s investigations into ways of transferring the aesthetic qualities of drawing and making by hand into a new digital context.

We asked a number of leading theorists, writers, artists and architects to tell us their views on the value of drawing. Visit opinion to see what they told us and tell us what drawing means to you.
