Abstract
Abstract This paper outlines the conduct and findings of a research project which compared the sketching activity and sketched output of pairs of design students collaborating face-to-face with other pairs linked by computer mediated tools. The paper proposes that attention to the nature and dispersion of ‘graphic acts’ can lead to a better understanding of the exploitation of sketching between remotely located design participants. Sketch Graphic Acts are used to illuminate the phenomenon of shared sketches and the importance of ‘thumbnail’ sketches—which were commonly exploited in laboratory studies of face-to-face collaborative working but which were significa...

5.  Summary of Findings and Observations from the AGA Project ·  Remote participants spent 51% more time making graphic acts than their proximal  counterparts.  This was statistically significant.  Partly this can be explained by the existence  of extended periods of non­drawing time in the proximal studies.
