In this presentation, we will use our work to illustrate the successes and challenges of our ongoing collaborative process. Our work and our relationship create a "double-whammy" because we are collaborators making politically-driven artwork, we undermine the myth of the artist as an independent, individual mad genius who is isolated and secluded. Our artistic collaboration is an extension of our relationship. It's about vulnerability, giving and exchanging combating the notion of "self-reliance" and "do-it-yourself" with asking for help, sharing ideas, and working shoulder-to-shoulder. We recognize that image-making is a form of cultural collecting.
