Abstract

.This exhibition is based upon the initial phase of a doctoral research project, which explores in depth
the interactions between physical activity and artistic creativity through the concept of simultaneous
recreational running and creative drawing. ‘Run-to-draw’ is a collaborative endeavour in which the
researcher creates drawings on Phidippeddes, an original engineered product designed by, and worn
on the back of, a co-runner. It contains an automatic scroll for drawing and mounted video camera
to capture the run-to-draw experience in situ. Here we draw attention to the visual (Phoenix, 2010),
displaying some initial artistic drawings and film footage produced over a variety of running contexts
and environments. Combining physical recreation and art, these drawings offer a unique form of
data where the artistic is a different way of ‘knowing’ the physical, and the physical invigorates artist
creativity. We hope that these drawings amass multilayered meanings and evocative interpretations
in those observing them, and offer some insight into the nuanced, sensory dimensions of the lived
experience of run-to-draw engagement.
