Drawing A Hypothesis: Figures of Thought
an intense process of exchange with artists and scientists, Nikolaus Gansterer reveals drawing as a media of research enabling
the emergence of new narratives and ideas by tracing the speculative potential of diagrams. Based on a discursive analysis
of found figures with the artists' own diagrammatic maps and models, the invited authors create unique correlations between
thinking and drawing. Due to its ability to mediate between perception and reflection, drawing proves to be one of the most
basic instruments of scientific and artistic practice, and plays an essential role in the production and communication of
knowledge. The book is a rich compendium of figures of thought, which moves from scientific representation through artistic
interpretation and vice versa.
