    Call for Papers - Vol.1, No. 2 (2024)  

    Topic: Disegno: spazi d’interazione / Drawing: Interaction Spaces

    The proposed topic for the call aims to provoke a broad and detailed reflection on the role of Drawing in shaping places of imagination, in representing or suggesting settings and spaces, including digital ones, where critical interpretation or analysis activities can converge. Reinterpreted or abstracted places that support design and dialogue, or digital spaces in the form of databases. In each case, drawing structures the signifier and conveys it through images or models, in forms and compositions of signs provided with grammars aimed at communication and interaction with knowledge. The need to delve deeper into this narrative dimension of Drawing stems from the necessity to offer a perspective on the inclusive and participatory processes that characterize research, specifying the role of representation as a form of dialogue that transcends scientific disciplines.
    Theoretical reflections, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, qualitative and quantitative research, best practices, field experiences, analysis of the thought and graphic techniques of drawings and works that, over time and in the present, have contributed and continue to contribute to the realization of critical thoughts on the science of representation are expected and welcomed.

     

    La tematica proposta per la call intende sollecitare un’ampia e articolata riflessione sulla funzione del Disegno nel dare forma a luoghi della fantasia, nel rappresentare o suggerire ambientazioni e spazi, anche digitali, nei quali è possibile far convergere attività di interpretazione critica o di analisi. Luoghi reinterpretati o di astrazione che supportano la progettazione e il dialogo, o spazi digitali in forma di banca dati. In ciascun caso il disegno struttura il significante e lo trasmette in immagini o modelli, in forme e composizioni di segni provvisti di grammatiche finalizzate alla comunicazione e all’interazione con la conoscenza. L’esigenza di approfondire tale dimensione narrativa del Disegno deriva dalla necessità di offrire uno sguardo ai processi inclusivi e partecipativi che caratterizzano le ricerche, specificando il ruolo della rappresentazione come forma di dialogo trasversale alle discipline scientifiche. Sono attese e accolte riflessioni teoriche, revisioni sistematiche, meta-analisi, ricerche qualitative e quantitative, buone prassi, esperienze sul campo, analisi del pensiero e delle tecniche grafiche di disegni e opere che, nel corso del tempo e nell’attualità, hanno contribuito e contribuiscono alla realizzazione di pensieri critici sulla scienza della rappresentazione.
