In art school, there was a notion to think the process of interdisciplinarity and collaborative quest as an orchestra — to imagine ourselves in a group playing a melody together. What makes a good sound? How do we negotiate that as a group? Is there a context for this type of practice — for the choices we make? Why do we choose this medium? Is it sustainable? Why are we concerned about sustainability? What are the implications of this work? How do I communicate with my group? Why do we communicate in this way?
In the process of building a collective, one should overcome the urge to rush. Very natural seems to be the need to skip the long hours of training — or thinking — and naturally perform this incredible concert. But, truth is persistence, and the willingness to work passionately are two unmissable notes of the melody.
