• re: Spring Topic: Collaborative Art Practice

    From the participants in the Scribble It Down project:

    The idea of sharing my world, my point of view and my perception of it on
    one hand, and the ability to expose, be exposed, and collaborate with other
    artists from different worlds on the other, seemed amazing to me.  It was
    very interesting to cooperate with strangers, without having a clue about the
    final result. Once you’ve set free your personal interpretation, all you could
    do was trust the others’ associations. It was some kind of a trust test.

    A collaborative project such as "Scribble it down" opened

    my mind to the possibilities inherent in digital art, and it strengthened
    my belief that no one person can claim ownership to it.  Even if I
    drew the first image, it circulated and evolved through every other
    participant. ……..  This new form of collaborative work is very humbling, and its
    results are remained to be seen. Working online offered me the opportunity
    to collaborate with fellow artists from faraway, with whom otherwise I would've
    never been in contact, allowing a cross-cultural flow of ideas and

    I enjoyed working with artists from around the world. As a painter
    and musician who has collaborated with other artists in person, I was curious
    about the process of doing so with artists that I had never met, without the
    energy of being there together physically. I tried to imbue my offerings with a
    sense of physical place and also my own paintings and music.
