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.
