:: An Ongoing Collaboration Opportunity ::
11/27/12 – Dear Fellow Artists, Students, Colleagues, and Friends, I want to take this time to invite you to check out a great collaborative opportunity. The project is a synthesis of process and energy created by Brooklyn Artist Elanit Kayne. Read on. This project is open to all, but if you happen to be taking a class with me this semester, this project can serve as an extra credit project.
Collaboration is the Key ~todayidumpedthebodies.blogspot.com
Hello Artists & Art Students,
Professor Ryan Seslow has invited me to write to you. As a conceptual artist, I like to involve other artists in my work, featuring their individuality and skills. We are all here together in this big wide world and learning from and appreciating each other is key.
Today I Dumped The Bodies originated in Coral Spring, FL. I was living in this suburb for a short spurt of my life and needed to entertain myself so I started “dumping” or leaving in prime places; “bodies” bodies of original artwork; for people to find.
Students will be paired with another artist. They will learn about and feature the artwork, find a location on or off of campus that they would like to feature, dump the body and photograph the dump, blog a bit about it, and feature links to their own work as a guest blogger.
I have collaborated by dumping a body with another artist. This is also quite fun. So if you want to work in teams this is also within the game plan. Since bodies is a collaborative project, I am open to hearing new ideas.
If anyone would like to work directly with Ryan and I using the internet and media to forecast the dumps before they happen, you are welcome to contact us. I am willing to sign off if someone can get extra credit as an intern or for extra curricular work.
Below are links so that you can read more about the project, or my work. You can also invite your friends and other artists. The goal is free art (artists make a lot of work and have storage, they have what to give) and features of interesting people, venues and conversations. I think reading some of the blog posts will help create clarity. You can search “guest blogger” or “guest artist” in the search box at todayidumpedthebodies , and my guest-ies will come up yellow.
Thank you in advance for your interest in collaborating on
