Drawing through Space:

Passages, Intermediates, Suspended Boundaries

The various ‘accidents’ and ‘incidents’ in the complex and deep mapping of the transmutations, reactions or interplays between various dynamics, can be explored through the interstices or the intersections between physics, mathematics, big-data science and visual perception. It is precisely at the intermediate topologies where all calculations become uncertain, that innovative drawing ‘systems’ may be realised. In phase space, even the most supposedly simple visual elements have their own complex properties and ‘memory’. What can be defined as an ‘energy-trace drawing’, may involve a complex modification of the relationship between matter and energy. Line may be redefined as a (quasi) periodic energy-tracing, a track, or a phase defect with far-reaching implications. New modes of drawing may be possible through ‘activating’, modifying, or even, disturbing the various coordinates and dynamics of space itself. Drawing through space may thus radically redefine our engagement with the physical world at the crossroads between art, philosophy, science and technology, inspiring deeper research, innovation and change.

Space as Phase: Tracing Dynamic Complexity

Cutting across art, design and science, the importance of drawing as a system, a process or a field enabling pioneering visual and conceptual investigation, is stressed even more. With the aid of information technology, the fast growing inter-scientific investigation of complex dynamic systems and chaos, inspires the continuing expansion of art, mainly in terms of developing abstraction and visualisation research. A new understanding of phase-space enables new modes of drawing in its evolving interdisciplinary context. Particularly inspiring is the evolving relation of mathematics to abstraction and the ‘inconceivable’, together with all those potentialities and challenges of giving complexity and chaos a geometric form. Indirect and intrinsic types of delineation are invented for the scientific ‘scanning’ of the assumed ‘edges’ of interacting force-fields. Even the basic geometric elements have become topologically transitive states with their own inter-dimensional ‘memory’, statistic potentiality, generative behaviour and paradox.

Boundary Transmutations in Generative Stratigraphy

In the light of contemporary science, technology, art and design, a meta-surface can be perceived as a dynamic fragment that emerges from the interactions of known and unknown systems. What would make such a meta-surface rich in creative, philosophical and innovative potential, is the possibility to reveal and engage with the emerging ‘meta’, ‘cross’, ‘trans’ and ‘inter’ systems, together with their programmatics, geometries, behaviours and interactions. Transcribing and translocating can be made possible through simultaneously reactive and generative meta-surfaces creating a time-space ‘slice’ for rendering data-fractions of the real world. As art has the potential to cut across and operate between various disciplinary fields, drawing may be defined as a process of interpreting, activating, transmuting or even re-programming heterogeneous time-space ‘stratifications’, operating as a critical intervention into the invisible flows of material and immaterial metamorphoses.


Inter-Surfaces is a new drawing series by Dr Eugenia Fratzeskou to be shown at the 9th International Festival of Creativity, Innovation and Digital Culture ESPACIO ENTER 2017, 24-27 August 2017 at the prestigious Museum of Modern Art of Tenerife TEA (Tenerife Espacio de las Artes, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain) created by the Herzog and de Meuron architects.

We are pleased to announce that Dr Eugenia Fratzeskou’s latest monograph

Tracing the Shadows of the Real through Interstitial Drawing in Art

has been released today 17th December 2015 by LAP – Lambert Academic Publishing.

The publication as well as existing monographs by the author can be ordered at special discounts on morebooks.


Interstitial drawing and diagramming enable us to reveal and engage with the ‘unseen’ that exceeds the limits of the ‘known’. As a condition of emergence and transitionality, interstitiality inspires our engagement with the interacting ‘layers’ of the ‘real’. In an effort to ‘read’ the obscure areas between 0 and 1, the unanticipated relations and tensions between thinking, experimentation, observation, representation and mathematical models can be innovatively revealed, reconditioning the parameters of vision, energy, information and matter. Through interstitial drawing and diagramming, unknown situations, e.g. inaccessible complexities, paradoxes and potentialities, inspire innovative practice and research in art and the related fields. The conditions and phenomena of space may become part of the creative process directly or indirectly. Code and software are used not as a ‘blank paper’, but as a generative, transitional and unstable ‘environment’. ‘Phase spaces’ and in-formation geometries emerge through the dialogue and the critical limits of philosophy, mathematics, optics, information technology and cosmology.

Dr Eugenia Fratzeskou’s latest monograph is Mapping the Emergent Hybridities of Urbanism: New Spatial Praxis Types, LAP – Lambert Academic Publishing, Saarbrücken, 2014.

The study investigates the new roles of the spatial praxis, as formed in the contemporary context of urbanism. The challenges and possibilities of reorienting the spatial praxis are investigated in conjunction with the unresolved discords regarding the issue of (re)presentation that has dominated philosophy, cosmology, mathematics, cartography, software engineering, animation, network visualisation, art, architecture and numerous other fields. New ways of ‘designing’ the emergent hybrid spaces of urban interaction through mapping the untamed ‘waves’ of the datascape are discussed through the study of the changing urban condition and in particular, of the site as a field of interactive urban flows, the urban neo-nomads and their trajectories. Giving a physical form to those hybrid spaces, poses as an important possibility and challenge not only for contemporary architecture, but also, for the spatial praxis across a number of related fields including site-specific and media art, drawing, interaction design, urban and social studies, e-communication and many others.
