etcetera --> collaborations
collaborations give me the opportunity to step outside myself. by working with other artists, i'm able to become part of their language, as they in turn become part of mine. mediums are explored that are often outside one’s typical realm of expression -- sculptors become painters, painters become poets, dancers become writers. the line between "whose idea was that, who drew that line or who said that word" becomes blurred. the distinction between the individual artists is erased - a combined artist is created. trust is essential in collaborating; trust in one's own language and trust in the other artists. my two primary collaborators are alicia bailey and donna price, both members of the collaborative collective spondere.
