This artwork is the result of the curators’ premise to invite an artist or artists to produce an initial image according to a brief. These initial images were then given to photographers to respond to and re-interpret the initial image. The curators produced a broadsheet publication and an online document cataloguing the works.
The research focuses on the act of collaboration and the way in which creative responses generate further meaning. The broadsheet outcome and the online presence suggest a commitment to dissemination of the process of creative research as cultural information and cultural exchange. Image on the left is in response to curators brief produced by Keane & Ednie-Brown. Image on the right is the response from photographers Jack Dunbar & Tosh van Veenendaal to the invited artist’ Keane & Ednie-Brown image.
