In an era where much artistic creation is digitized the practice of drawing has remained constant. Many publications about the relationship between drawing and thinking rely on discipline-dependent distinctions to discuss the activity's function. Drawing: The Enactive Evolution of the Practitioner redefines drawing more holistically as an enactive phenomenon, and makes connections between a variety of disciplines in order to find out how drawing helps us understand the world. Instead of the finite event of producing an artifact, drawing is a process and an end in itself, through which the practitioner might gain self-awareness. By synthesizing enactive thinking and the practice of drawing, this volume provides valuable insights into the creative mind, and will appeal to scholars and practitioners alike.
