Exquisite corpse refers to an artistic method or game invented by the Surrealists that joins together contributions from multiple participants. A visual iteration has someone draw on a piece of paper, fold it to cover their addition, pass it on to the next person, and the next, and the next, etc., with each new person adding to the work. Once complete, the final drawing is revealed showing a collectively assembled work. The inability to see the previously drawn portions results in the creation of fantastical and nonsensical creatures, turning an innocent game into a generative artistic practice. Show off your art history chops and have a built in conversation starter at your next get together with our ‘Exquisite Corpse’ patch. Who knows - maybe you’ll even start your own game!
