In January 2011 we put out an international call for proposals seeking two artists with personal experience of disability to collaborate with Drake Music Artist/Curator in Residence, Melanie Clifford, on a new online commission entitled Drake Music In Translation. The brief, initially developed by Melanie, was to investigate translation and interpretation via remote collaboration.
Over 2 months Ailís, Rebecca & Melanie communicated via email, file-sharing and a multi-author blog – thinking together about place and transience in relation to the commission themes.
Their work can be followed on the DMIT blog.
Towards the end of the working period, the artists produced Distant Interiors, a music and moving image piece for online exhibition.
