In the children’s game “Jinx,” the word is exclaimed when two people say the same thing at the same time. From the moment twin sisters Colleen and Rani arrived at the Prairie Ronde Artist Residency in Vicksburg, Michigan, they experienced ongoing “twin moments,” as they call their simultaneous thoughts. Inspired by the former Lee Paper Company mill and its varied, cavernous spaces, along with the house they stayed in (full of musical instruments), the lush natural beauty of Vicksburg, and the warmth of its residents, they got lost in wonder and play. Days flowed together as ideas and stories developed, echoed, and overlapped, resulting in a shared body of interconnected work. As each artist worked on her own piece, she was influenced, nudged, and at times even corrected by, the other. One called their process a corroboration; the other agreed. The jinx doubled and doubled again.
