Finally, we brought our explorations into the third dimension with a room-sized string drawing. I had intended to document the performance and discard the string at the end of the class, BUT, the students wove it very tightly and worked out a way to suspend it from the ceiling. I can't imagine the space without the string, which became the perfect finishing touch.
Using glue and string, we drew diagrams of our communication patterns on boards. When these were dry, we gathered up leftover cans of latex paint, supplemented with some acrylic paint, and using paint-roller sponges, "inked" our plates and pulled multiple prints from each one. Boards, prints, paints and people all moved around the room in a collaborative swirl. We shared techniques and materials as we developed our multi-layered prints.
