“St. Augustine once said: “We consider light as the lack of darkness, while everything dark is light. Not to clarify places and times in darkness is valuable, as much as the day.”

If Augustine had drawn these sentences, would he be able to express the purpose of his writing by his drawing and visual impacts and how? 

For me, the perception of drawing is not simply figuring out how to depict the objects. Research is needed to achieve an impressive drawing. 

I am currently researching the phenomenology of drawing. it is related to vision, embodiment, and perception. I try to find how the autonomy of drawing is related to the different subjects in phenomenology. Besides, I take advantage of using different media such as animation and film as a drawing tool.
