Collaboration is continuous creative dialogue, intensely spending time together, hanging out, talking about this and that. In the end, it is even stupidity and psychological freedom. You can work with anyone, but it’s better not to turn this process into empty chatter. You can collaborate for the sake of collaborating, but you can’t develop this project or that without any inner need to become aware of what you could never realize alone. Then again, collaboration, like a strong drug, can also lead to hospitalization.
