Exquisite Corps

Postby kitoba » Tue Jan 03, 2017 12:00 am

Quite a number of years ago, there was a "game" frequently played here called "Exquisite Corpse." Invented by the surrealists near the beginning of the last century, it challenges artists to collaborate on a picture, where each person views only enough of the existing image in order to provide a smooth transition.

Although I never participated, I enjoyed a lot of the finished images created here --if I remember, Dot was the ringleader!

At any rate, if any of those artists happen pass through here again, I thought they might enjoy seeing this new variation on that old concept --Exquisite Corps, a dance version of the same idea.

Agreed - I thought you would have. I never did one, I think - I lacked confidence in my art abilities. I do remember doing a drawing for 'eat poop you cats' (telephone oracle, with drawings and captions instead of questions and answers). I had an army of goats trying to deal with a fence or something.

I'd be up for doing a corpse now, though.

And of course, back to what you posted, that was a nifty video!

I've never been much of a visual artist, beyond doodles. But, like drache, I might be up for doing one now... *hint hint* *cough* Dot.

Do you have any links to the old images, btw? I still have a couple saved somewhere on disk.

I guess I could just do a search here on the forum...

Who me? Alas, no. I seem to recall that Dot may have saved them shortly before Squeakymewmew took down Sluggy Pics for good, but I may be mis-remembering.

edit: I appear to be mistaken. There was no mention of saving the corpses when Squeakymewmew announced she was shutting Sluggy Pics down.

Here's an old thread. Note that all the links to finished pictures are broken because the site that hosted them was taken down several years ago.
