A note on Collaboration

Collaboration as a negotiation between holding on and letting go.

One example of letting go:

In collaborating with Peyton I had to let go of my perceived notions of process:

Thursday – I was asked to dance with a rake as if I was seducing it.

Friday – I was chewing bubblegum and hula hooping.

Monday – the trio had been stripped back to the call and response of confessional texts that appeared in the final presentation.

This was a liberating approach to developing ideas where it became more important to throw ideas away than to hold on to them.
