Collaborative experiment with Kristen Mallia. Five one-minute animations developed separately in response to shared textual prompts, shown side-by-side in an exhibition.

Here's what we wrote about it:
This 2-channel video installation examines alternative narrative construction and the role of collaboration in formmaking. Using intuitive methods for both gathering source material and generating time-based interpretations, each artist worked individually and final video segments were only viewed in completion, side by side.
Despite sharing no insights into process, direction, materials, or interpretation, each minute contains a variety of visual parallels. Thus while the creation of the installation was done in isolation, the final results are collaborative in nature, creating moments of disjoint and unexpected synchronization. Lines are divided, and merged, to reveal two perspectives and one story.
