Artistic collaborations

October 7, 2008

It’s not every day that artists meet other artists who are interested in so many of the same things, and even have an appreciation for one another’s aesthetic.

I have known Tokyo-based Colombian artist Klaus Fruchtnis for many years, but it is just recently that we discovered our similar interests in using photography as a way to capture urban spaces, in particular public ones. We also seem to always end up in language-based exercises.

We first collaborated on the Thing-a-Day blog run by some great people over at Eyebeam, and most recently decided to continue these ideas in a project we are calling Cross Urban.

I also recently met Brooklyn-based artist Annie Leist, (we were in a group show together at Broadway Gallery) and when I read her artist statement, I had to make sure I was not reading my own.  I’m sure we’ll find a way to work together as well – something I look forward to!
