On Collaboration Rob Fitterman : Small Press Distribution

by Rob Fitterman & Dirk Rowntree
Dirk & I have a very active, over-the-shoulder style of collaboration. As with our earlier project, cedars estate (www.ubu.com), Dirk & I tend to sit in front of the computer together and look at images and text and have conversations about the implications of each choice. In War, the musical I produced a text, first, comprised solely of web language, and Dirk also chose to compose with mostly downloadable, digitized images. The intersections became complex when we discussed the larger frame of our thinking processes. For instance, Dirk became engaged with ideas about commodification and institutional critique that echo my own ideas about how we, as Americans, process war through media. Dirk saw, in the text, an engagement with the media that he, in turn, wanted to maximize in the design of the book. The blank pages, black pages, odd ball fonts, etc., all contribute to his interest in presenting a "product" that draws our attention to its production. His most recent title, War, the musical, is a collaboration with artist Dirk Rowntree. He teaches at New York University. Dirk Rowntree is a visual artist who works in design, photography and sound.
