Collective Biography


A group of individuals together endeavour to write a short collective biography that is equally true for each and every individual member of the group.

Through conversation the group searches for accidental correlations in their own personal histories including coincidental moments (we’re all wearing yellow!), shared experiences (we’ve been to Mexico!), accidental correlations (we’re all sensitive to wool!), similarities in taste (we like the smell of books!) and so on.

The above videos were created with attendees of an Artist Residency in Motherhood workshop, at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia.
