Constructing the architectural moving drawing: transdisciplinary practices between architecture and artists’ film

College: Central Saint Martins
Supervisors: Professor Graham Ellard, Steven Ball


The thesis aims to establish a hybrid moving image practice – the 'architectural moving drawing' – exploiting contemporary digital moving image technology for new transdisciplinary methodologies between architectural representation and artists’ film. This research emerges from and contextualises my on-going critical practice of architecturally focussed artists’ film and related theoretical writing, and my dual-disciplinary grounding in fine art and architecture. Residing between, and drawing upon these disciplines, the research has architectural preoccupations at its core. Reciprocal processes of writing and making will test the 'architectural moving drawing' as a new form, and consider how it may inform artists’ film and architectural representation.
