On drawing as the process and as the finished product:
"I suggest that through the process of producing a
drawing, the drawer is simultaneously constructing knowledge about the drawing.
The word drawing is both a noun and a verb; it is both a product and a process. The symbolic interactionist Dewey (1934) highlighted this “linguistic accident”:
It is no linguistic accident that “building,” “construction,” “work,” designate both a
process and its finished product.Without the meaning of the verb that of the noun
remains blank. (p. 51)"
