Collaborative sculpture & Oblique Strategies
Using a combination of the round-the-clock format (each person contributes for a set period of time – in our case, minutes!) on a series of projects and using prompts from Eno/Schmidt’s Oblique Strategies, we ended up with an unusual collection of pieces. What was useful about this experiment was it forced you to start without thinking too much, and eliminated anyone’s feelings of ‘preciousness’ about it. What was strange was noting the feelings of ownership (or lack thereof) of the work, but also you still got strong sensations of when it was ‘done’. However we still pretty much all ‘added to’ the constructions; not much taking away was done.
