Current Projects

Collaborative Strategies

Using both critical and practical theory, I am constructing a mode of collaboration that rejects the notion of collaboration as an act of consensus. Instead, the system developed produces agency and responsibility. Born from a frustration with artistic collaboration turning into a practice in discourse and debate, the strategy involves less verbal feedback and more creative production of content. The work is in development along with Clara Nizard and Eastman Presser.
