How we make and understand drawings: A two day forum, Mar 16/17

Formal Analysis and Semantic Interpretation of Pictoral Representations;
How we make and understand drawings (including comics)

March 16 & March 17


What happens when one makes a drawing or sees one? The speakers at this event present new theories of how a drawing is composed and understood in terms of its parts (Cohn) and how one knows what a drawing or picture means (Greenberg), taking into account methods of ‘perspective’ or other representational systems that the artist has used. And what happens when drawings or pictures occur in sequence as in a ‘comics’ or a film?
