Line of research: Art Education and Aesthetic Education
Project name: The Designer as Author
Reflections on authorship in descriptive writing in diverse discourses about authorial design. The research project focuses on conceptual discussions and their conclusions which are important for conceiving and planning a design. The project is less focused on providing services and more on possibilities of expression and authorship . Theory , here, coexists with practice and seeks to provide project design graphic objects that are self -initiating and that rethink, in a combative way, the neutrality present in the continuing conceptual structure problem /solution while, at the same time, stimulating the entrepreneurial capacity of participants.

Project name: Contemporary Poetics: reading production, writing production, the production of meaning
The proximity between two procedures forseen by the Greeks, poiesis and techné, is the starting point here for seeking to establish relationships between poetic manifestation and the executions of techniques and different human expressions. Such poetic expressions are understood here as productions of writing which are ready to be read, ready to be subjected to reading productions, measured by their capacity to produce feelings or not. Thus, the project proposes, at first, a comprehensive critical review of the various approaches, formulations and reflections (the production of meaning) on verbal language and, later, on the different languages articulated with verbal language, with their particular modes of enunciation.

Line of Research: Creative processes and poetics of the everyday
Project name: Art and Daily Leftovers: Context, reutilization, dialogues and documents of garbage displacement between the private and public space (renovation).
This project aims to problematize, raise questions and visualize daily practices related to production, transformation and displacement of garbage in the private context (the home) and public space through the development of poetic procedures that register and reuse garbage and other leftover, as well as encourage dialogue about the process of garbage accumulation and its consequences for environment and urban habitability. The project is associated with the Research Group Displacements, Observances and Contemporary Cartographies ( CNPq/UFPel ) and the lines of research: Graphic Notations, dialogues and contextual materials and their formas e presentation; creative processes and poetics of the everyday; visual poetics.

Project name: Contemporary Non-toxic engraving
Research project about the use of non-toxic alternatives for engraving touch on three interrelated questions: ( ) non-toxic metal engraving procedures; (b) technological innovation, and (c) sustainability , contextualizing the technological innovations in the area of artistic engraving, bearing in mind methodological and procedural renovation for the auto-sustainability of production systems in this area. The use of non-toxic materials is emphasized, among them acrylic bases, as alternatives for engraving, especially on metal, because they are sustainable processes that do not affect the environment and health of the artist.
Teacher: ANGELA RAFFIN POHLMANN
Project name: Engraving in new bases: the acrylic bases as non-toxic alternatives for metal engraving.
This project verifies the sustainability and workability of alternative processes that use non-toxic methods and materials for making engravings, especially in procedures used in metal engraving. It also relates these procedures to teaching contemporary engraving.
Professor: ANGELA RAFFIN POHLMANN
Project name: Displacements Observances and Contemporary Cartographies
This project investigates cartographical production in historical and contemporary art that involves displacements and observances in different contexts; learning about different concepts, methods and vehicles of cartography and their applicability. It investigates the vehicles for presenting cartographies, from Geoscience to contemporary art; promotes meetings with researchers from different areas; walks and observations in public and private spaces in the city of Pelotas and its surrounding area; creates cartographies by means of different procedures and languages (photography, poetry, drawing, painting, video, engraving, sculpture, music); it inquires about cartographies that arise from life; and develops printed matter as the process and the result of investigations.

Project name: Travel and places: anthropological, literary and travel maps
Understanding the concept of travel as a form of representation of reality (present in diverse socio-cultural fields) circumscribes the limits within which we proposed our analyses: which routes can the travel perform itself, as a category of thought? The project maps verbal production in which the category of travel is present, particularly when potentialized by its relationship to identity and difference; and, a common framework for analysis is built that allows, at a later time, to particularize the objects of investigation (in their discursive, conceptual and imagetic representational forms), without losing sight of probable regularities that may exist between them.

Project name: Work documents: methodological paths
