The Drawing Narratives Experience

The Narrative Drawing Experience workshop aims to converge learning and doing through transdisciplinary and transcultural practice. We propose an immersion in two concepts separated by space and time: an ancient Cokwe narrative from Angola, and the abstract perspective of a twentieth century modernist.

The fusion of these two modes of inquiry: the sand drawings narratives, based on the coordinate system of Sona Geometry, and the fundamentals of Wassily Kandinsky's theory “Point, Line and Plan”, culminates in the collective and collaborative experience of Light Painting, which creates an individual and a group resonance.
