Free On


Adam Burton is an artist who works with both language and objects in the public domain. The collaborative project FreeOn, 2010 shares a premise with Decalcomania:

“We wanted to find a way of deferring responsibility for any decisions we might have reached individually whilst making art. And have contrived a system by which we tell each other what work to make. The time taken talking about it, the fractured means of conversation (i.e. online document exchange, sms text, email), and allowing synchronicity to act as an occasional arbiter in the development of ideas has caused the finished works to stray from the prescriptive dirctions we gave each other at the outset.”
