Deadline for submissions: 4 September 2015

TRACEY Journal is a fully peer reviewed electronic journal dedicated to drawing and visualisation. It is varied and diverse with a fast growing readership of academics, students and practitioners representing a wide range of drawing interests including fine art, architectural design, product design and visual communication - ideally any activity in which drawing and visualisation is essential.

In this next invitation for submissions, we are focusing on the theme of Drawing and ‘presence’, particularly in relation to the following questions:

What is the relationship between ‘drawer’ and ‘drawn’ in the moment of drawing?

Does drawing enable immediate sensuous presence in relation to its object?

How might the sustained attention of drawing be characterized? What is the role of immediacy, mediation, meditation, repetition?

What role do empathy, intensity and materiality play in drawing?  What role do order, analysis and clarity play in drawing?

Is drawing a meaningful activity? If so, in what way? Do drawings have meaning? Is their meaning objective, subjective or both?

What does drawing say about desire? Is drawing a form of appropriation, a will-to-possess, a way of taking hold of things? Or does it imply a moment of dispossession, a surrender of ‘self’ in search of a new understanding?

Do accident, loss of control and the properties of the medium influence thinking?

Does drawing offer a mode of engagement that enables understanding the world in terms of ‘becoming’ rather than ‘being’, in terms of dynamic processes rather than static objects?

Does drawing reduplicate the world or can it transform it? Is it a kind of metamorphosis?

A submission may constitute drawings or other visual material, texts or research papers that have not been published before or have been published in a different context and also texts and images combined. There is no word or image limit. All submissions will be peer reviewed by two members of the peer review panel.
