Through a series of drawing instruments I discuss the drawing out of the creative act as an analogue for the creative act of occupying architecture. Contrary to the popular myth of creativity as an impulse of the instant, this work takes pleasure in the duration in which ideas emerge. This pleasure is played out both in each instrument and in the incremental development from one to the next. They are built to discuss the possibilities of indeterminate conditions in architecture, a venture steeped in paradox. Acknowledging this, paradox is employed as a vehicle for nurturing indeterminate conditions, especially with the questioning of the shadow, which is normally an agent of certainty in architectural representation.
