Static System Document #2 will illustrate the process of creating a collaborative piece. We intend to outline the good and bad consequences involved in a collaborative creation process, which entails investigating new ideas, as well as accommodating working habits, of individual designers and artists. Our objectives for this presentation are, first, to depict the intricacies of working as a group and, second, to reveal those operations involved in such a work that remain inconspicuous in the final piece, like the integration of past work, discarded ideas, varying designs and layouts.
This presentation will cover several topics within a greater conception of documenting a piece in progress; we will investigate the dynamics of idiosyncratic design and technical processes coming together, the manner of distributing work, the development of this process as it relates to past ones, and the relevance to iamstatic as a collaborative condition.
The format for the presentation will use flash, including text, video, audio and imagery to document each step in a collaboration in linear time. Conclusions to this proposal are unknown as the result of the piece is directly related to the presentation itself; the presentation is part of the piece, which is completed when the presentation is over. All the information revealed by video, sound, sketches and ideas related to the work will also be demonstrated, thereby giving the audience a real view of the iamstatic process.
