Mapping out my collaborations and collaborators

I’ve spent most of this evening diagraming out the artists I collaborate with. Turns out it’s pretty complicated – interesting and complicated. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while… 

With the help of two amazing people I’ve been in the process of updating my art website. This is really hard. I’m glad that Willow and Phoebe are guiding me through this. 

Part of the challenge has been in how to explain my collaborations. 

I collaborate with many artists. My performance characters appear in collaboroations with different artist for different projects. Some projects are ‘my projects’ I’m inviting them into, others are ‘their projects’ I’m part of, and still others are ‘joint projects.’  

So many different intersecitons. 

Phoebe has been patient with me. In one of my meetings w her, I was trying to explain this tangled web by words, then by scribbles of circles and lines on paper – then it occurred to me that it might be easiest to make drawings for the web site. 

I tried drawing it out with colored pencils and pens – quickly this became really really messy. 

I turned to Canva app. Well, wouldn’t you know it, I poked around and found a way to do this. 

So here is what I have so far. I know there are more artists I’ve worked with and projects… I’m considering these pages my first pass.
