Marion Phillini is a venture in ways of collaborating. Maria Fernanda Calderon, Jon Clair, Ella Phillips and myself, have united to investigate how collaboration functions when making a moving image work. What are the possible methodologies and subsequent outcomes?
So far we have produced two short moving image works where no pre determined structures were set, all aspects of production and exhibition as well as decision making and authorship has been shared amongst us equally. We are both the subject and the object of the works, we do not divide labour according to skill but each is able to take up each one of the roles.
We plan to further develop this idea by completing 9 experiments in collaboration, with each experiment lasting 3 days and comprising of a day site-responsive filming, one day editing and a day of reflection.
