Decollaboration: Exposing the Creative Method Through Interference
Michael C. Lovinguth* and Joe A. Moccia
Prof. Jim Jereb, Faculty Mentor
With this studio/research project our intention is to discover a creative method in artistic creation by subjecting ourselves and our work to a process of de-collaboration. Each of two artists will begin work on two pieces. After achieving an initial stage of definition, the artists will trade works and then appropriate the imagery for their own use as they see fit. This trade will occur several times. Naturally, questions concerning when a stage is complete, what proper motivation for redirection is, and when work is finished, will arise. The answers to these questions will apply for these works, for these artists, at this time. Both artists will record these answers through a detailed log of their reactions, insights, and motivations. These logs will be presented with the finished studio works. Through this research action we expect to acquire and communicate a lucid view of aesthetic motivation and creative reaction.
