Abstract

The lost, forgotten or overlooked marginal zones and irregularities of buildings are often unrecorded within traditional architectural systems of representation. The marks, blemishes and scars that come to exist within a space through use and over time are left uncharted and unrepresented. This text explores how the body can perform as an instrument to record and describe such trace phenomena when used in collaboration with orthographic drawing conventions. It reflects on a process that fuses the dynamics and complexities of the performer's body with the fixed conventions of architectural drawing to give a more comprehensive and detailed representation of space. Co-authored by Douglas Gittens and Angela Bartram.
