Nuances of Blackboard

Blackboard – Semester 1, Batch 2020, WCFA (Click image to enlarge)

After a cycle of teaching online, i am rediscovering the nuances of the blackboard. It has a certain slowness, and allows to grow thoughts collectively as the class proceeds. It traces the emphasis and the hesitations of the teacher, simultaneously. It is an evidence of overlapping thoughts and time, unlike a digital presentation which displaces time. Here the attempt was to summarise the learning outcome of the first semester drawing course. It traced all the things we spoke about the need to ‘draw’. There is a certain pleasure to look at the final mess, like the one we have when we cook our own food.
