As a creative, I see the beauty of pattern and design in so many places. As a full time student a few years ago, I was intrigued by the amount and transient nature of art in the classroom.
I noticed that each of my professors had a distinct pattern that they used when erasing a chalkboard at the end of their lecture. After class I used their stroke pattern to create abstract works with chalk. I then photographed the work and erased it. I did works representing Dr. Randi Papke, Biology, Joy Branlund, Earth Science and Michael McClure, Math.
