I went to the Spark Meet and Greet the other night, at the one of the curators, Kris‘s house. We had a little potluck, and did a few different exercises, including reading something we had brought for a few minutes. It was interesting to see what people had brought, and I wonder if/how it will influence my opinion of them. I knew quite a few of the other “visual arts” participants from other instances and opportunities in my professional life, but there were a few that I didn’t know, including a couple of guys who had just graduated from U of C. I don’t know many of the dancers. I think they said there are 12 of us in total, which will be paired up into teams.
This project sounds like it is going to be a really interesting sort of collaboration. I hope that I take full advantage of the opportunity, and use it to both grow and push my boundaries, and produce something I am proud of. The opportunity could open up new possibilities for me, in terms of new ideas and ways of working, and meeting new people to potentially collaborate with again, down the line. I am curious to see what comes out of this and where it could possibly lead.
