“Once they decide the ‘why’- what the drawing has to do- the ‘how’ becomes clearer… You draw not to illustrate but to discover, to uncover the project. It is a device for speculation, a tool rather than an end product. It can be with a rapidograph, with an Epson printer, with light on photosensitive paper, with gunpowder. All media are valid so as long as there’s an intention” (Simon Herron in The Bartlett Book of Ideas. p19).
