"Lines of Enquiry: Thinking through Drawing"
2006-07-15 until 2006-09-17
Kettle's Yard Gallery, University of Cambridge
Cambridge, , UK United Kingdom

Including no less than three Nobel Prize winners, architects, artists, prize-winning product designers, heart and plastic surgeons to name but a few, the next exhibition at Kettle’s Yard explores how drawing is still used across disciplines.   Even in a digital age, with cameras in our phones, sometimes only a drawing will do. 'Lines of Enquiry' looks across disciplines at the almost universal use of drawing as an exploratory and explanatory tool. From the wobbliest doodle to elaborately detailed expositions, the exhibition shows how we draw to think through problems, find out how things work, visualise concepts, order information, and communicate to other people.

Exhibitors include physicists, geologists, architects, engineers, zoologists, archaeologists, paleontologists, geneticists, surgeons, historians, geographers, philosophers, and composers, as well as artists.

Among this feast of drawings are:
Sir Roger Penrose's reformulations of Einstein's relativity equation,
Sir John Sulston's human genome explorations,
Sir Colin St John Wilson's original ideograms for the British Library,
Tariq Ahmad's drawings for plastic reconstruction surgery,
Richard Seymour's 360º drawing of Piccadilly Circus,
Richard Deacon's interlaced layerings,
Gerry Gilmour's back of an envelope exposition of the structure of the Milky Way, and
Sir Harry Kroto's discovery of the C60 carbon atom.

The exhibition provides a backdrop to a summer of drawing activity and workshops. Organised by artist Barry Phipps and Kettle's Yard, it is a development of 'On the Way to Things', an exhibition held at Churchill College, Cambridge earlier this year.
