In 2005 I wrote three very subjective first-person texts, and sent them off to three artist friends to edit, alter, change and generally mess about with. I didn't set any parameters; just that we would exchange the text files for an unspecified period of time before they would eventually be declared finished. Six years later, they were finally published in The Lead & The Invalid, a publication related to JCHP's ongoing activities.



The original impetus came from a curiosity about co-authorship. But I could never have guessed the odd turn that each one took. Thanks to the many re-writings, together with the passing of six years, it is now totally impossible for me to identify the parts that "I" wrote.
