The artist’s goal for Dots and Lines is to have focused interactions with people (friends, colleagues, and strangers) during a collaborative creation of abstract paintings based on the participants common ground and/or conflicts. The paintings generated in this collaborative artwork will serve as artifacts of the conversation and interaction between each collaborator and the artist. Thereby, the final products can be interpreted as documenting the, albeit brief, tone of the artist’s interactions with his collaborators. Winners of the collaborative painting receive piece.
