Studio Conversations, 2011 - Ongoing
The studio serves as a space for invited private object conversations and experiments. These are sometimes recorded but most often just happen. Because they happen in private, we become our own audience and a certain safe space emerges from that intimacy. From person to person, rules and structures are dissolved or upheld in varying degrees. With each, the language born drastically differs and reveals the character of our relationship or the mood of our engagement. We sometimes make things, but most of the time we speak by the action of placement. Following each conversation we sit and discuss our reflections and based on our analysis, we determine if and how to proceed with further conversations.
