ART/ifact Exquisite Corpses
Some exquisite corpses that I took part in at ART/ifact
(an art gallery and music venue in Lakeland, FL) on June 2nd, 2018.
The other participants included Emmy Lou, Leif, Rachel, and Sunny.
For those unfamiliar: Exquisite Corpse is the concept of having 3 or 4 people together, and folding up a piece of paper in thirds or fourths to draw their own individual parts of a body.
The first person draws the head (and lines connecting the next fold) then folds up their side (so no one can see what they drew) and passes it on to the next person
so they can draw the middle body (or the first part of it if there's 4 people involved), then they fold up their side and pass it on to the next person
who either draws the second part of the middle body or the legs and feet.
When the last person makes their contribution, the entire picture is unfolded,
revealing the "exquisite corpse" so to speak!
There are even audio exquisite corpses out there,
the best examples being the ones Hal McGee has curated over the years
as well as the band Bauhaus, who even has a song named "Exquisite Corpse!"
