IRMA is a transnational collaborative entity directed by Inguna Audere and Michael Rogers. IRMA projects have included other creatives from various disciplines based on the requirements of the project. Such projects have included strategic project development, site specific and performative actions, gallery exhibitions, academic courses, curatorial endeavors, and performative sketches. These projects all revolve around the idea of taking the use of glass further conceptually, glass as metaphor, glass as a source of inspiration, and glass as a material. IRMA is composed of three main categories, creative, educational, and curatorial. The goal of IRMA is to create open means of communication between people from various disciplines through art projects that create community and result in works that transcend the limitations of single authorship.
Collaboration represents a frontier to explore the nature of inspiration, ideation, creation, and realization. Aspects of personal, national, societal, and cultural identity can more readily be considered and expressed from the multiple points of view the collaborative experience provides. Emphasis will be on global, international viewpoints, and the exploring of pluralistic approaches to creating. Collaboration within the arts can be seen as a playing field for considering complex issues and questions as the arts can encompass all disciplines. IRMA Collaborative involves international artists focusing on glass as a medium integrated with other disciplines including transitional collaborations. Through interdisciplinary arts the essence of humanity, and complexities of social unity and duality can be revealed. Through the dynamic process of collaboration, we hope to discover new forms of experimental hybridization which communicate rich and complex associations. Currently the IRMA Collaborative has included cooperation with artists, scientists, composers, poets, dancers, and choreographers, the list is becoming extensive.
