Artists taking part in Drawing Room's exhibition programme are invited to compile ‘reading lists’ that inform and expand the themes explored in their works.  This list has been compiled artist Susan Morris for the symposium Standard Deviation: Time and The Body, which looks at ways in which artists have used automated processes of drawing to explore time, the body, and the machinic gesture or trace.  Titles marked with an asterisk * are held in Outset Study.
