This description of the exquisite corpse parlor game is taken from Chapter 9 of the open source textbook "Digital Foundations: Intro to Media Design with adobe Creative Suite" - link: "Exquisite corpse” is a parlor game that the Surrealists developed in 1925. In this game, each player submits images (drawings, paintings, photographs) of heads, torsos, and legs, and they are combined to produce surprising new bodies. We have played this game with students using images of each other that we captured in class on a digital camera, as well as by using images from pop culture, found on the web. Collaging celebrity and politician body parts can provoke thoughtful discussion. Images of students are on the wiki, but it's more fun to try this with pictures of your friends or family! For this assignment you can work with friends, family or just yourself. Make photos of body parts like face, hands, ears, arms, legs, torso (front or back), etc. Use an image editor with layers to combine the separate parts into a surprising new body. If you need help you can follow the tutorial here - - which includes example files you can practice with, but afterward make your own Exquisite Corpse and share it on your blog.
