Moving directly from my last entry I would like to explore the idea of collaboration. My last project was a collaboration between myself, another artist and the client. Each and every custom design is just that, at least that’s the way I view it. My job on any custom project is to help fulfill someone else’s vision. As an artist and designer I am find myself getting stuck on certain projects or pieces from time to time and usually, if I can find a way to collaborate then I can break free of those limitations. Over the last several years I have been involved in quite a few collaborative projects. I’ve both been invited to collaborate and organized collaborative projects. You can view some images of my last project “Collaborative Visions” over HERE. Above is a mosaic of several in progress pieces from a previous art project and there are more images over HERE. These projects never fail to inspire me to look at my process differently. I love seeing how other’s react to things I create intuitively and vice versa. We don’t take these projects too seriously, we have fun with them. That’s the whole point, to liberate ourselves beyond our own creative process.
I can promise you will be seeing a lot of collaborative work here at HKPowerstudio. It is something I want to explore in more depth on both a professional level and in a more personal creative way. How and why do you collaborate?
