Neighborly help

The Danish artist Torben Ribe was a guest teacher in the art department for a week. He set a task which involved each student finding one of their previous works which they had to pass on to someone else and at the same time receive a work from a fellow student. These works then had to be further processed, recontextualized, staged or otherwise actively interpreted. This produced some really thought provoking and fun results and forced students to give up the idea of ownership of their work as well as broaden their understanding of what artistic material can be.
