exquisite corpse #825

The Exquisite Corpse game: “game of folded paper that consists in having a sentence or a drawing composed by several persons, each ignorant of the preceding collaboration…” There are more details and pics here: anexquisitecorpse.net/what.php

Originally started by the surrealists in the 1920s, the game has since been updated for play in today’s techno-driven universe and I’m in love with it. It’s random, it teaches patience, it calls attention upon interesting cultural threads and it’s art for art’s sake.

The greatest honour is to be randomly chosen to start a corpse, as I was lucky enough to be chosen to do for the corpse below:

:: think of everything/think green/Circulatory/Third time blue ::
created by: lilydustbin, Shae, Jim and SkyWookiee

I highly recommend this game to anyone looking to add a little more creativity and random goodness to their lives. Anyone can join…

“Responsibility for the Exquisite Corpses themselves lies with the artists credited and the inscrutable intervention of the collective unconscious.”
