Digiville: Working across Disciplines, Borders, and Attitudes

10 April 2008 Lighthouse, Brighton
The Collaboration Experience: Working across Disciplines, Borders, and Attitudes Cynthia Beth Rubin A discussion of the pitfalls and benefits of collaboration, drawing from personal experience, and from discussions with other artists who have collaborated in the creation of new works. New Media forms of artistic practice seem to be made for collaboration, as artists can now merge varying elements pictorial, sound, and interface elements, as well as working between 2D and 3D.
Nonetheless, we are not trained to be collaborators, and finding our way in this territory is not always easy, as we face differing assumptions about process, aesthetic, and ownership. In the growing global world, cross-cultural collaboration may be the key to breaking down barriers between technologically advanced wealthy countries and those artists with limited access to resources, but how can we take that step in a way that keeps the conversation among equals? 10 April 2008 Doors: 6.30pm Talk and presentation of work: 7:30pm At: Lighthouse, 28 Kensington Street, BN1 4AJ Lighthouse Bar will be available for refreshments (Cocktail Happy Hour from 6:30pm) FREE entry For more information: http://www.lighthouse.org.uk/whatson/digiville.htm
