“Interactive” installation and drawing, 2010

The Interactive Blackboard is the original blackboard (circa 1925) from my studio, which was formerly a high school classroom on an island in Marshall, NC. I drew a variety of insects on the blackboard -- drawing from images sent to me from colleagues and friends via cell phones. The work is interactive (although departing from computer code) as there is a box on the blackboard for visitors to draw their favorite bug. Further instructions request the visitor take a picture of their drawing with their ‘phone/computer’ and e-mail the drawing to me.

Examples of visitor drawings on the Interactive Blackboard sent from their cell phones:
