Tony Scott: A Moving Target

"For some time after Tony Scott tragically, mysteriously took his life earlier this year we tried to think of some way to honor his work and explore it on the Notebook. A proper response was found by filmmaker, editor and Notebook contributor Gina Telaroli, who suggested a kind of critical exquisite corpse, and in this manner forge a way—or an attempt—to fit the forms of Tony Scott's oeuvre to the content critics would contribute."

A story of a thousand tweets begins with a single twit

One day ago, Neil Gaiman wrote the beginning of a story, which was retweeted by BBC Audiobooks America as the first of a thousand or so tweets that would compiled and edited to become an audiobook. People are still contributing, and BBCAA's blog has four scenes compiled (1, 2, 3, summary of scenes 1-3, and 4), for a total of 175 tweets. When 1,000 or so tweets are logged, they'll be edited into a script, and produced in a studio to make the final audiobook, which will be released for free on BBCAA's website. This isn't the first game of exquisite corpse played via twitter that made a piece to be refined and presented in some way. The first Twitter opera was one of a few recent "gimmicks" to garner attention for the Royal Opera House (twitter opera feed, ROH twitter feed, ROH blog). The result, Twitterdammerung, was given a decent review by opera critic Igor Toronyi-Lalic.

"It will be exquisite, and there will be many corpses."

On the Road of Knives is never-ceasing illustrated carnage... Zak Smith, Shawn Cheng and Nicholas Di Genova alternate drawing a perpetual narrative of monsters killing monsters being fought by monsters.

Eat Poop You Cat!

Eat Poop You Cat! is "a variant on the exquisite corpse family of games... The mutations can be hilarious. You don't have to 'know how to' draw. You don't have to 'know how to' write. Just keep the papers moving, until the space is used up."

AnExquisiteCorpse.net

AnExquisiteCorpse.net is a surrealist "game of folded paper that consists in having a sentence or a drawing composed by several persons, each ignorant of the preceding collaboration." Original participants included Miró and Man Ray, among others. (some additional history)

In this modern version, the participants create their sections of the "corpse" based on a 15-pixel strip of the previous section, with some pretty interesting results.
