#53 long-distance relationship
Why did you get involved in this project?
I wanted to contribute to a collaborative project and to work in a medium I do not usually work in.
Did the one week turn-around for the work help or hinder your creativity?
The one week turn around was a good restriction, it helped to create and immediate focus.
How did you feel about working on a project where you didn’t know who you were collaborating with?
It felt good I enjoyed the fact that choices and decisions made were not affected by previous knowledge of another persons’ specific background or artistic practice.
Has being involved in the project changed your thoughts on creativity?
If you worked on several videos, what kept you coming back for more and how many did you do?
I liked the challenge and it was pleasurable. It was a good way to continually rethink the relationship between images, non-linear narratives and the influence of sound. I worked on 21 videos.
