A life lesson written in… chalk? In Student Work, Series displays beautifully drawn motivational phrases on a blackboard. Worth what is written, but not for long. This ephemeral art of powerful messages cannot be preserved.
For them, art is everywhere. And all the time. At Columbus College, the Art & Design (Ohio, USA), even with a busy workload, students do not stop creating even in recess. At this art college every Monday, the Dangerdust student collective fills a blackboard located on the third floor of the school building.
In the works presented we see the application of sophisticated typography, used in elaborate drawings with motivational sentences, inspired or just humorous quotes. The amazing thing is that all this work is done using only chalk. That is, without possibility of reproduction or conservation. An ephemeral art that is beautiful while it lasts.
