Exquisite Corpse Game

At the end our four weeks  of artist dialogues, we played the Exquisite Corpse game. Without knowing what the others wrote on the page, a person added a word on the paper, folded it and sent it to the next person.

We used surrealist Andre Breton’s first 1925 version with a sequence of adjective, noun, verb, adjective, noun. “The exquisite corpse shall drink the new wine.”

As played on May 19, 2016 at 6 PM in the Fish House.

Enchanting horseshoe crabs migrating green swamp.
Graceful phytoplakton cry sweet, sweetest manatee
Patient home to complexify peaceful coping
Vital place swims rising water

With grammar added

Enchanting horseshoe crabs migrate with the green swamp.
Graceful phytoplakton cry, “sweet, sweetest manatee.”
A patient home makes complex your peaceful coping.
A vital place swims with the rising water.
