This is part of a large collaborative drawing project in which mailed drawings back and forth between me, my favorite professors from undergrad and graduate school, some of the members of the Artificial Art Institute (a small collective of painters who shared a studio for a couple years in SLC), some of my best friends from Graduate School, artists I met at residencies, current friends/artists here in my temporary town, three former students, my brother and my sister. The process started with a drawing, which I made into a print and then sent the same print to everyone to respond to. The resulting drawings were all displayed together for my exhibition, DAD, shown at the Haas Gallery at Bloomsburg University, in Bloomsburg, PA.
This video features the beginning of my drawing collaboration with Britta Hallin, and the sound art of Anthony Obr. I sent the resulting drawing back to Britta, along with the video footage (which I also sent to Tony), and we each completed another round of the drawing. Each round led to a new form of ritualistic drawing. The final drawing was displayed alongside the video with the sound in the gallery. Please see my website to see the final drawing and installation at lisacvonkoch.com.
This project has brought more out of me than anything else I've ever done, and I am sincerely grateful for these amazing talented people who bless my life daily.
Dedicated to my collaborators, my students, Amber O'Donnell and Onederland, where we will always be Thirty-onederful and pay Omada Stew to you!
