Drawing Inspiration

BY ADAM LANMAN
@ VOL 4 ON OCT 29, 2015

"I imagine ... how the mechanical world and the natural world might merge together."

In Drawing Inspiration from PechaKucha Night Oklahoma City Vol. 4, Adam Lanman shares his drawings and explains how he can imagine the natural world functioning in mechanical ways. Throughout years of studying the poetics of the built environment, Lanman has created a massive collection of drawings, methods and subjects. Lanman’s presentation illuminates a series of works exploring the space between fine art and applied art. With his artistic pursuits, Lanman hopes to renew public interest in the mundanity of surroundings that they take for granted while keeping in mind a simple but powerful thesis: if we want to change the places we live, we must first change the way we see.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, August, 15th 2016.
