Back by popular demand (suggested this year by Patrick Rogiński and others) is our artist collaboration project!Work on top of, underneath or with existing imagery from another artist’s creative practice to create a collaborative finished piece connecting you artistically across the distance, even though you may not have ever met!Through this process you may encounter a subject matter, artform, material or technique that is unfamiliar or even totally unknown to you. And this is all part of the fun! In this project you are inviting someone else to complete a piece of your work without restrictions and at the same time taking on the same challenge. This all happens digitally, of course, so you don’t actually lose the original work. It’s win-win! Have a look here to see the results from last year’s collaboration project.

Line is a performative installation that incorporates a transformation from 2D drawing to 3D installation.
We are repeating the endless cycle of birth, life and death each ksana (setsuna), every 0.013second
Line as a manner of thinking…
First act is of drawing a simple straight line on paper, the shortest distance between one point and another, in one quick short stroke. This action, repeated thousands of times on thousands of sheets of paper represents the axis of “ksana” (“setsuna”), a moment. In Buddhism, the Sanskrit word ksana is a measure of time (setsuna in Japanese). It is approximately one seventy-fifth of a second, i.e. 0.013s, such a small amount of time that it eludes our conscious awareness. It is believed that the cycle of birth, life and death recurs endlessly within the space of one ksana.
The next act is crumpling the paper. This process, halfway to destruction, creates additional irregular points along the drawn lines. This crumpling alludes to the infinitely complicated dealings or circumstances that always happen in the relatively tiny period of a human life circulation. But if there is a moment of spreading that crumpled paper, we might realise that the straight line can be multiply reshaped; that the crumpling is not destructive, but part of a process that ultimately allows a straight line to be reborn as a curve; that we can conceptualise “Anicca” (impermanence), the Buddhist belief that all things, including the self, are impermanent and constantly changing.
