after reading 3

drawing3_1drawing3_2drawing3_3I began by making a straight line from left to right using a soft lead pencil. Fast. Immediate. I’m repeating the gesture over and over, bringing together two surfaces. I hear the sound of the pencil drag along and  fall off the edge of the paper. I think, patchiness, resistance. Muscles. Fibre. The more lines…conductance. Mobility. Plasticity. Variability is inevitable. Translation. This is yet another beginning.

About constanzasilva

I am currently a PhD candidate in Education (educational technology specialization) at Concordia University. My approach to research in education is interdisciplinary; I draw upon science and technology studies, the philosophy of technology, the visual and media arts, educational technology, higher education studies and adult education. I am developing a comparative study of articles on MOOCs in popular and academic literature to illuminate constructions of "public" and "private" in debates on technology in education. I hold a Master of Fine Arts (Concordia University 2005) with a specialization in robotic arts. What are the potentials and limitations of technology for learning in the arts? How does the case of the visual arts help us understand the role of emerging technologies for learning among student professor relationships in higher education learning contexts?
