Induced Creativity is a proposition for alliances attempting to reflect on marginal public spaces – geographical and/or artistic/art-scenic similarities/dissimilarities – by dwelling in the collaboration trenches by means of inducing methods, codes for working with each other that might challenge and/or delight us. Through our meetings in Georgia and Iceland we seek inspirations, visual and non-visual presentations and communal conversations.
The project aims for a conceptual conversation and collaboration between participants and the public as to push the question of perception of art in public space, public space itself and our predetermined thinking in the respective peripheral environments as well as to further interrogate the collaborative process.
