Time factor

We have exchanged digital photographs taken at different places at the same time, then manipulated and returned them. Now we will transform these again and realise them physically in some medium (or let them be realised). The result will be photographed and sent back. The one difficulty is that we have no time structure so far, so will soon have to decide how much time we can take to respond to the work. Some mediations could take weeks (a sun burn on an image for example). This is a trial at its first stage and so far has been promising: the transformations that happen potentially spin the work in continually new directions. Digital processes enable a quick production of work, manual or physical executions are generally slower. But all these processes, used in an exchange of work, can produce surprising outcomes.
