Artist Collaborators *



Purpose                                   To expand his capacity to handle more challenging projects of increasing scope, size, and complexity, the principal artist aims to share his project opportunities with collaborators.


Ideal collaborator                     A pleasant, passionate, intellectually-driven, industrious student artist or nascent artist who is pursuing art-making as a career, and who wishes to gain project opportunities and in-depth experience in art-making, art documentation, and art project co-ordination by collaborating with the principal artist on projects which may originate from either party.


Tasks                                      Collaborator in project conception, art-making, art installation, digital media representation, prototypal modeling, art documentation writing and layout, grant writing, project co-ordination.


Domains explored                   Offline and online New Media Arts / CyberArts / Information Arts practice in the diverse domains of Medicine, Biotechnology, Vision Science, Information Technology, Cyberspace, Architecture, Finance, Robotics, Cosmology, Sociology and Ethics.               


Recognition model                   The artist grants second name recognition for projects conceived, organized, or secured by the principal artist; in exchange for meaningful contribution by the student or nascent artist to the work. Should the project originate primarily from the collaborator, and is primarily undertaken by the collaborator, the collaborator shall gain first name recognition. The principal artist reserves the final right of foregoing recognition of the collaborator in principal-initiated artist projects, and of himself in collaborator-initiated projects. This collaborator recognition model is a well established model in the scientific community, and the principal artist seeks to adapt a similar model in Art.
