Act and Sketch/WF Bsc.

For the first time, a course is offered that brings traditional nude drawing into a constructive dialogue with the means of virtual drawing (virtual sketching). Using VR glasses and a head-mounted display installed in the drawing room, we create immaterial 3D sculptures on a scale of 1:1 with one or both hands, as well as drawings on paper with pen and brush, charcoal, ink, wax and graphite in various scales. Through cross-media we approach the motif of the human body. We work in parallel in different realities and reflect on the overlapping spaces of perception and production based on the visual results. Through drawing movement and rhythm in interplay with digital technology, completely new visual playfulness emerges, which we bring together theme-specifically in large-format panel paintings - so-called tableau vivants.
In addition to the media setting, the aim is to discuss questions of effect and presence, perspective and scale, as well as issues of haptics in digital space and physical material resistance. What role do classical pictorial principles such as image structure, composition, figure, ground and spatial relationships play in the digital? How does the multisensory knowledge of body and space change through technology?
