Collaborate Creatively ::with:: Andrew Kornylak

My plan for this blog has been long been to explore the idea of creative collaboration. As the old office structures that have reigned in publishing continue to fall away, I put my money on true innovation coming not from the lone artist in front of his/her computer, but from dynamic, efficient, international teams.

It’s my goal to help “content creators” of all kinds figure out how to make that teamwork as fulfilling (financially and creatively) as possible — in part through my own experiments in collaboration.

Once I start traveling, I’m planning to collaborate in person with artists in the cities I visit. But when I can’t be face-to-face with my creative counterparts, I’m asking them to send me an idea for a little project.

Andrew Kornylak, who I talked with about his new magazine, A Steady Drip, sent me the image in the middle of this collage and asked me to find four pictures, one for each side. I decided to find four more to fill in the grid. I rather like what came out.

All the photo’s besides Andrew’s were found on Fjord Photo, which was the first online collection of good art photographs by young photographers I thought of (although there are many more, which I’ll highlight later).

I expect some feedback from Andrew soon in the comments, but first I’d like your help. WHAT TITLE SHOULD I GIVE THIS PIECE? Try to just go with whatever words or phrase pop into your head first. Please leave them in the comments and I’ll choose my favorite soon, probably with Andrew’s help 🙂
