A Heideggerian inspired ontology of drawing, which describes the Being of drawing as becoming, by employing a blend of practical and theoretical elements - such as the diagram, the Heideggerian Vorhanden/Zuhanden split within presence and the four-sided diagrammatic structure synonymous with Graham Harman’s OOO. This book claims that drawing operates as an endless fourfold interplay of Acts, Object, Ideas and Promise. Drawing is that which gathers the various acts of drawing by a drawer, the physical object such acts produce, the various ideas which are therein conveyed and the potential for further drawings to be brought into being. Drawing works because it promises the element of surprise to both drawers and viewers alike. A promise which is kept by all those who continue to draw, both in and over time. Series editor (Drawing theory): Gordon Shrigley. Designed by Christian Küsters of CHK Design, London.
