The Collaboration Experience:
Working across Disciplines, Borders, and Attitudes
Cynthia Beth Rubin

A discussion of the pitfalls and benefits of collaboration, drawing  
from personal experience, and from discussions with other artists who  
have collaborated in the creation of new works.

New Media forms of artistic practice seem to be made for  
collaboration, as artists can now merge varying elements pictorial,  
sound, and interface elements, as well as working between 2D and 3D.   
Nonetheless, we are not trained to be collaborators, and finding our  
way in this territory is not always easy, as we face differing  
assumptions about process, aesthetic, and ownership.  In the growing  
global world, cross-cultural collaboration may be the key to breaking  
down barriers between technologically advanced wealthy countries and  
those artists with limited access to resources, but how can we take  
that step in a way that keeps the conversation among equals?
