The question of the instrumentality of language and the line is central here. Drawings are where transformation occurs; they are a place of entropy, which in information theory refers to the amount of data delivered by a source. Olivier Garraud addresses questions such as lost meaning and the accelerated obsolescence of our system of thought, analysing and revisiting this recent post-digital revolution and transposing it into the artisanal field of draughtsmanship.
