Inspired by the place based, time based environmental art of Andrew Goldsworthy and others, Alison Diesvelt’s section of EDST301 experimented with digital photography and created a virtual Mandala on a Padlet page. The whole thing began with a walk to the beach on a sunny winter’s day to create the ‘real world’ Mandalas in the sand. Students photographed the process and product of their journey and returned to class to co-create the following ‘sculpture’ in Padlet (projected on the smartboard for ease of manipulation). There were a few glitches and negotiations around how to organize, arrange and take turns but, overall, a successful and active day of learning.
