The agreed provision of a work room is transformed into a rejection on site by the University of the Azores, Department of Oceanography and Fisheries. I need to find a different room. There are several square tables standing in my new work room. Surprisingly, the paper formats cut before the trip each fit exactly onto the square tables. I incorporate the furnishing situation found on site into my regime.
Method of Proxy 15
I work from all four sides of the table and fold the sheets parallel to the paper and table edges, - double, 4 times, 8 times, 16 times. Afterwards, I smooth out the paper again. I orientate the start of my drawing on the resultant folds, using the same method as for Proxy 7.
Method of Proxy 7, which is a continuation in turn of Proxy 1. Using all the coloured pencils lying in the box in coincidental order, I draw innumerable lines in dynamic movements until the pencil marks concentrate to form a circle. In this process, my right hand stays within the right-hand half of the paper sheet, and the left hand within the left. In the middle there is an overlapping zone.
My right hand is still rather weak after having broken my arm recently. It only exerts a gentle pressure when drawing and so becomes faster in the course of its movements, while the pressure of the left hand increases and its speed is reduced. The merely slight differences in the lines' speed and pressure at the outset increase after I have made this observation.
