In Transit looks into and rethinks the creative process involved in artistic practice. It is an exercise in bridging the gap between artistic stimulus and final output. The exhibit stems from a video shot by artist Jazel Kristin in 2014. Working with the video as their point of reference, musicians and artists of varying nationalities, interests, and expertise, were selected to collaborate and create a new piece in their respective media for the exhibition.
While one of the goals of In Transit was to demystify the process of creating an artwork, whether a musical piece or a visual art piece, somehow it ended up asking broader questions then giving any concrete answers. Does what we listen to while working directly influence our output? Does having a certain amount of knowledge or information about an artist influence how you will receive or perceive their work? How are images formed in our minds from music? The exercise continues.
