Abstract / Summary

The topic of this paper is to present a brief overview of my current postdoctoral drawing research, described in pedagogical terms. Using the example of a particular drawing research project (Autonomic Drawing), the aim is to describe my approach as an example of interdisciplinary practice-led research. In describing how postphenomenological research is understood in epistemological terms, I will offer a detailed account of the how the main method associated with it – variational practice – operates within my own drawing research. Variational practice operates in tandem with various method(s) of serially developed drawing. Together they form part of my methodology for conducting research through drawing. Variational practice allows the researcher to query phenomena in both empirical and embodied terms. This combination forms a potential pedagogic strategy for demonstrating how to rigorously conduct practice-led research.
