Get that ball rolling...

Wikipedia-- the Lord bless it-- describes the Exquisite Corpse as "...a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled, the result being known as the exquisite corpse...Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule (e.g. "The adjective noun adverb verb the adjective noun") or by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person contributed."

I don't think we need to adhere to a strict format, but our print exchange seems a variation on the Surrealist parlor game.

And now there's a post up.

  1. The tentative plan right now is for everyone to post an image to this space by October 1st and then we each choose someone's image to respond to in whatever way we see fit. Then we each make 35 prints(10x15") and send them to UTK, where they will be sorted and sent back. Thinking that we should try to respond to people at other schools, for better cross pollination, but don't want to make it a rigid structure. Any suggestions? Perhaps as people begin posting things will fall into place.
    Thanks for your participation and let me know if you DON"T want to participate so we can reduce the edition size sooner than later.
