Connor is a talented artist in his own way, but we did not exactly see eye to eye. It's ok though because, like I said, he is still talented and has good musical ideas...he just wasn't interested in my ideas. I can relate-I hate other people's ideas!
I think all of this collaboration stuff relates to Nicolas Bourriaud because he talks so much about how the world that we live in today is contained in a rectangle that is the screen. I had a lot of trouble trying to convey to my composers that my video was not just a video but a performative piece. I think a lot of people will just see it as a rectangle on a screen but it is more than that to me. I guess this is the "trap of illustration" that artists in the digital age fall into sometimes.
