i keep track of my collaborations based on common interests. sharing interests is powerful but tricky. my work has been about triggering interests that are not One or Another but an In-Between, emerging from discussion. i recycle experiences not to capitalize them but to move each other. it is not about building a vision but reflecting on how i touch Another and how i am touched by Another. caring, assembling, overlapping and insisting in the interdependency
