A conversation, carried out through a continuing email correspondence with a professional art fabricator, discusses the nature of delegated fabrication, authorship and the logistics and facilitation of a collaborative work.
While the eventual work remains unresolved, a personal response emerges from the confusion, based upon a manifestation of a hypothetical space and set of circumstances discussed in the proposed work.
Two voices discuss the space which they inhabit, the original emails now recorded as scripts. Voice one is mine; my own words spoken and recorded by an audio engineer. Voice two is the words of Peter Ballantine, the correspondent, a professional art fabricator, restorer, lecturer and theorist specialising in the work of Donald Judd and delegated fabrication. His voice has been contracted out to an actor, my father, as an imagined interpretation of personal communication between two different levels of expertise and experience.
