In 2014 I was at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research in Bergen, Norway as part of my Bergen-Horta Project. I held interviews with the scientists in order to learn about their work. Most of them go to the blackboard spontaneously, and draw on it. With the help of their drawings on the board, they explain to me the complex physical phenomena in the atmosphere and ocean. I am surprised that the researchers prefer hand drawings to a finished, developed visualization generated at the computer. I understand minor aspects of their explanations. I would like to work with the blackboard drawings, with real and fictive holes, and accentuate the processual.
Method: I wipe away parts of the sketches on the blackboard using a wet sponge and photograph the drawing that is left in different phases during the drying out. I perforate the photos made in this way using a punch. Working on two photos in each case, I try out various possibilities in a horizontal row, whereby the photos lie staggered, one above the other.
