Fukt, A Magazine for Contemporary Drawing

What is FUKT?
FUKT is a magazine for contemporary drawing. It comes without ads, beautifully designed with a focus on the visual, with occasional interviews with interesting artists and essays by engaging authors. The design and format are changing for each issue.

What does Fukt mean?
Other than the obvious meaning, it also translates “moist” or “damp” in Norwegian and Swedish.

Drawing and Visualization Research

    TRACEY is the site for drawing and visualisation research.We aim to stimulate, host and publish diverse perspectives on drawing and visualisation to/for a community of researchers, practitioners, educators and students. We advocate the value of drawing and visualisation in professional and educational contexts.
    We encourage participation and collaboration.
    Our aims are facilitated through three central activities: as host for the Drawing Research Network (DRN), as an open access online journal, and as a project space.

"Some salt had been spilt on the ground (residue from a salt firing).
Somebody had trodden on it leaving tread of their shoes imprinted.

"Thinking of drawing as a trace left by things…I photographed the moving reflection of things layering in motion on the transparent surface of the window."
