  1. All art is in some way collaborative, as human beings are not as isolated from each other as we sometimes like to think.

  2. I believe in artists collaborating rather than competing. I have participated in many collaborations over the years. I very much enjoyed this one on the form haynaku which, until I found it in this series on the listserv, was unknown to me. Regards, Tom Savage
