Hey Folks! I was part of an amazing project called Telephone: An International Art Game. I wrote a poem for the project which you can find here.
Here is the press release from Satellite Collective:
"For over two years, SATELLITE COLLECTIVE, a non-profit arts incubator in New York City, has been playing TELEPHONE, the game in which a message is whispered (and transformed) from person to person. In this case, the message has been passed from art form to art form. The message might become a poem and then a painting and then a film. Each artist was only shown the work directly preceding his or her own, unaware of the original message or the arc of the sequence.
The other twist was that each finished work was assigned to two or three other artists. Instead of progressing a straight line, this game of TELEPHONE has branched out exponentially like a family tree. The experiment produced 315 original works of music, collage, dance, print, film, installation, prose, sculpture, poetry, photography, embroidery, painting, drawing, performance, and even a videogame.
“The results are breathtaking,” crows Kevin Draper, Artistic Director of Satellite Collective. “Beyond generating hundreds of new works from all over the world, you can follow the message as it seemingly disappears and then almost magically reemerges throughout each thread of artistic interpretations.”
In order to present this project, SATELLITE COLLECTIVE developed an innovative, online exhibition platform that will allow visitors to follow the trajectory of the message as it evolves through a multitude of art forms. On Monday, April 20th, SATELLITE COLLECTIVE we will be officially launching the exhibition, making it free and open to the public.
