exquisite corpse - a surrealist technique in which different artists added 
to a drawing without seeing what the others have added; or added in 
relation to seeing just a small part of what others have done

similar to telephone - children in a circle passing a message around - it 
becomes something else - like rumor

but in telephone - the core is x -> x' -> (x')' - and so forth - trans- 
formation of a single strand

whereas in exquisite corp additions are only bleakly and remotely tethered 
if at all - the size might grow indefinitely - or not

boundaries are problematic. years ago i designed a game with a board + 
pieces - the squares of the board could move as well as the pieces on them 
- they just had to remain tethered in one or another fashion - the game- 
board would crawl across the floor -

apologies for not contributing but this is the best i can do -

i'm working on http://www.asondheim.org/new - stuff at the moment but only 
two stills at http://www.asondheim.org/lowl.jpg and 
http://www.asondheim.org/lowl2.jpg - at least i hope that's the titles -
they draw me on -
