Collaboration as an alternative to or an enrichment of individual art practice is an idea that is definitely in the air. We first thought of collaboration as the theme for an issue of M/E/A/N/I/N/G Online last summer. Since then work by the Winnipeg-based collective, the Royal Art Lodge, has been exhibited at the Drawing Center in New York and Holland Cotter has noted the vitality and success of a number of collectives such as Forcefield and Alife in his January 19th, 2003 article, “Doing Their Own Thing, Making Art Together,” in The New York Times.

How is it different than your individual practice? What, if any are the effects of the collaborative effort on your individual art practice?
