VaroomLab Journal Issue four – Visionaries


Like to investigate illustration in depth? As a subject illustration is looking forward and exploring what it can be, and this Journal gives plenty of food for thought. Issue Four investigates the way visionary approaches are able to expand the way we perceive the world, and also how influences from the past continue to resonate today, and contains papers submitted and peer reviewed for the Visionaries call for papers. Download from here.


Topics include the illustrated map as a mode of communication, tracing the link between visionary J.G. Ballard and the cultural and virtual fabric of 2015, drawing and the digital networks of the contemporary urban landscape, and imagining an alternative future for arts education. A film on the manifestations of vision in contemporary illustration practice is also included.
