System Drawing

To connect art and science process, photographer Andrea Frank of SUNY-New Paltz developed a program called System Drawing.

These sessions are "experimental trans-disciplinary four-day think tanks. The research is thematically framed by pressing environmental concerns, which are addressed through a creative systems thinking lens and resonate with social, historical, economic, and psychological factors"

The program involves, "group-based creative processes that support new ways of conscientiously connecting with our environment and each other. A System Drawing session usually starts with experiential body work to expand multi-sensory awareness, which is followed by a slow walk through the chosen site and environment. For each session, a set of site specific tools and materials is provided. Participants intuitively interact with the material, while also fluidly responding to each other’s interventions."
