Drawing Pattern and Chaos
Deadline: 12 September 2018

Issue 4.1. of DRTP calls for submissions that stem from drawing practices related to the notions of pattern and chaos across the widest range of disciplines: fine art, design, architecture, craft; science, technology, engineering; media and communication. Although pattern and chaos might be posited as dichotomies, the intersection between pattern and chaos is of particular interest especially when associated to forms of drawing in different fields of practice.

We welcome submissions that relate drawing to the following areas:

• Geometry, the molecular, systems, networks, diagrams, structures, mapping, constellations, cosmos, geomorphology, algorithms, biomorphism.

• Pattern as a blueprint that is open to disruption, re-wiring, de-railing. The glitch, the virus.

• Repetitive and/or random behaviours. These might include hand-eye interaction; embodied knowledge; play; performance; cultural and societal practices.

• Modes and methods of drawing: machine-generated, automated, system-based, performative.

• Any other aspect of drawing that has theoretical, philosophical, psychological or historical implications for pattern and chaos.

Submissions can take the form of:

• Articles (5000 words, 1–6 images)

• Research Projects (3000 words, 1–4 images)

• Critical essays (3000 words, 1–4 images) or Short essays (1500 – 2000 words. 1-4 images)

• Profiles (1500 words, 1–2 images)

• Featured Drawings (1–2 image and 1000 words)

Deadline: 12 September 2018
