The Chalk Drawings continue the patterning experince in public spaces. Marking interactions with the energy of everyday time, the viewer's body physically moves through and becomes part of the drawing. Surprisingly, these drawings also became a performance, revealing peoples perceptions about activities in public space. Reactions to an adult drawing on the sidewalk with chalk, have been mixed. While mostly encouraging, I have been questioned about permission, told to go back to my neighborhood and threatened by the police.
