Notations (Book Publication)  is a collection of eight individual books that together form a folio of drawings, notes, collages, photographs and appropriated images taken from the notebooks of architects who use them as both reflective and reflexive forms of thinking.  It includes work by Tom dePaor, Michael Doherty, Grafton Architects, Seamus Lennon, McCullough Mulvin, O’Donnell + Tuomey and Nigel Peake.  Based on the principle that notebooks provide unique insights into personal worlds of drawing, this publication offers a set of open notations that can be interpreted and experienced as directly as they were drawn and made: unselfconsciously curious about the world.    Published by Gall Editions Editors: Paul Clarke and Peter Maybury  ISBN 978-0-9566293-4-0

"For generations, Belfast’s Irish community has drawn on the wealth of language and culture of the Donegal Gaeltacht and maybe, in recent years, the urban Gaeltacht of Belfast has offered hope to Donegal. This November we will celebrate that connection with a ‘bi-located’ exhibition when a group of artists will have a piece each in the Dillon Gallery in Belfast and another in An Gailearaí in the heart of the Donegal Gaeltacht.  We will have a video link between the two galleries so that visitors to either can get a sense of both."

'The film frames eight short portraits of architects and practices as cinematic windows that look into this very individual world of drawing.......From the meditations on use and the travellers’ tales of Grafton Architects; the building of the drawing by O’Donnell+ Tuomey; writing as drawing by the architect and critic Shane O’Toole; through to the Belfast architect Michael Doherty’s vivid pencil studies – why architects draw is evocatively captured and documented in this film.'
