        From: Ken Friedman 
        Subject: Research Request: Drawing and Thinking 

Dear Colleagues,

Do any of the subscribers to this list work in the field of drawing and 
thinking? I'm looking for someone with a focus on such questions as these:

- How does drawing represent reality?
- How does drawing help designers to shape future realities that do not exist
when they are drawn?
- What is the relationship between drawing and the evolving states of designed
- Does drawing make thinking visible?
- If drawing makes thinking visible, how does this take place?
- What effects do drawing create on evolving human thought?
- What relationships exist between drawing and other forms of information
- How does drawing function as a form of diagrammatic thinking?
- Do diagrams, models, and chart s represent a version of drawing?
- What relationships are worth considering between drawing and knowledge
representation of other kinds?
- What does the current literature across different fields tell us about

This is an open-ended inquiry. If these topics suggest questions that I have not
asked, I'd be interested in suggestions.

At this point, I don't want to say more about my interest in the topic. I'm
interested in leaving this open while I wait to hear from others. I will post
some notes on the responses. If anyone wishes their thoughts and comments to
remain confidential, I will not post it.

Please write me directly - OFF LIST - at email ken.friedman.sheji@icloud.com

Thank you.
