“Colab Draw - Onye Ozuzu (modern-afro dancer & choreographer)” 2008

Paint, White cloth suits, We’re duct taped together and dip our hands and feet in paint as we do improv movement on a canvas that’s laying on the fooor.

In the Colab Draw series, a collaborator chooses a medium/action/costume/etc.  Utilizing this choice, we grasp the medium of choice together with one hand.  In this way we make the marks together.  With our free hands we hold a video camera together, insinuating the importance of the live action over the resulting object.  A second video camera documents the scene from a third person perspective.  The two videos are displayed side by side.
