Exquisite Corpse


Exquisite Corpse is a collective game in which hand-drawn images of creatures are randomly assembled, creating unpredictable results and combinations. In Steak Zombies, a series of workshops, participants draw the images. Thus one imaginary character will be created by a least three people: one person draws a head; another draws a torso; and a third draws the legs. The drawn parts are then crafted into doll parts, for assembly into the Exquisite Corpse creatures. In an interactive installation at the workshops, the drawn heads, torsos, and legs are also collected in the Steak Zombies Fruit Machine. The Fruit Machine spins the drawn parts like the drums of a slot machine until halted by the pull of a cord, resulting in countless combinations of imaginative 2-D creatures.
