I 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.

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 following the debates on MOOCs in popular and academic literature, as they occurred between 2012-2015, to illuminate constructions of "public" and "private" interests surrounding technology issues in education. I hold a Master of Fine Arts (Concordia University 2005) with a specialization in robotic arts and graphic design. View all posts by constanzasilva
