We hear about how their sound installation ‘Impossible Architexture’ came into being. And we talk around collaborations and authorship. With me asking the question, who was the ‘owner’ of this piece of work?

In a collaboration where you are commissioned to facilitate new work, who is the ‘author’ of these pieces? Is it just the young people, or is it the artists work, or some space in-between all these interested parties.

ivon feels that the joint authorship, the equal collaboration MUST be stated at the start of the process. For this work, it is the young peoples work, as this was the stated start point. It was an important aspect of the commission and if they commissioned had stated that they should ‘collaborate’ she would have made a very different piece of work.

While David felt that their artistic decisions makes them an important collaborator. That they installed the installation, that they formed the basis of the work, and that these decisions makes the work a more joint piece.
