In this manifestation, Blacky uses the edge of the wooden board as the centerline of an applied green color field. She starts applying the paint onto the paper, continuing it onto the floor, then finishes the color field on the paper before complementing it later on the floor.

This manifestation shows that Blacky is perceiving the painting surface as a visual element. She perceives the edge of the paper-covered wooden board as a visual distinction from the floor and reacts to it by using it as a visual dividing line within the color field itself.
