If You Could Collaborate

If You Could Collaborate is the fourth annual If You Could exhibition. Aiming to provide a platform for the finest creatives from all over the world to question their conventional working methods and outcomes. The contributors have been challenged to produce something a little unexpected, by working with a partner of their choosing from any discipline, profession or background. There is no brief to answer, or format to honour – the only limit being the enterprise and imagination of the artists involved, and a liberal 12 month deadline. Below are all of the pairings, and their outcomes.

A Foundation Gallery, Rochelle School

James Gilpin & Helge Fischer

As a current student on the design interactions course at the Royal College of Art, James has an incredibly bright future ahead of him. An adept craftsman and experiential thinker, James’ ideas are always at the forefront of his process, and are as enterprising as the man behind them.

He and fellow Royal College student, Helge Fischer (with the help of sculptor James Page), have produced My Toys Like Me - a reactive glass sculpture augmented with electronics and speakers that draws in an audience to engage with a band’s music in a gallery context.
