In my Constellation seminar last Thursday, we had the activity of choosing a shape and then drawing it with either a pen, pencil or chalk. I had chose a pen as that’s a medium I always like working with. The person next to you had to hold the piece of paper up, whilst you drew the shape in the air. Then we had to write A and B, before drawing a line between the two, whilst they were held up in the air.
I think the point of this exercise was learning how different materials work with gravity or how they don’t work, as I know someone in my study group struggled with the chalk. I found it difficult to draw anything straight as it came out wobbly due to how the paper kept moving as I tried to draw the shapes in the air.
