"Dialogue Room [was] an event facilitated by MaryAnne Carey and Corinna Ray at Gallery 1010 in Knoxville, TN. This project was sparked by the collaborations and conversations that artists have with each other. Dialogue is the place where their work can live together and this collaborative and expansive nature of exchange was the impetus for this project.

Pairing six artists from across the country into collaborative teams, Dialogue Room shows documentation of prompted conversations and experiences of creative engagement. ...recorded literary readings, live performance, video, audio, sculptural installations.

Natalie and Colleen each filmed themselves taking 15 minute walks in their cities while collecting objects along the way to make a type of portrait of the place. The videos were played side by side, in sync, along with the object lists, to highlight the comparisons/contrasts of two separate places and their personal experience of each place.
