we are not alone: New Work in Collaorative Fiction was a multi-disciplinary, collaborative approach to installation that was evocative rather than instructive. Six artists, Emily Goodden, Susan Hawkins, leannej, Wesley Mulvin, my name is scot, and Frances Zorn created a space to accommodate shifting relationships between diverse works where the non-linear, non-unified nature of experience was acknowledged. Whether as a fragment or a fully-formed story, narrative was inherent in the configuration of sculpture, music, text, and still and moving images the artists presented.
