Joseph Beuys is concerned with looking at matter and energy, fixed and fluidity. Principles that organise and other manifestations of force in the universe.
He is exploring drawing in ways to evoke energy in his "Drawings after the Codices Madrid" Leonardo Da Vinci.
"The energy of the drawn line creates a symbiosis between the life of the mind and of the thing being depicted" Beuys
