"Dada will in your faces, Dada is nothing and does not mean anything."
"Poetry shoul be done by everyone, and not by only one."
In a way, my idea is to use the idea of "making meaning through collaboration"- exemplifying the nature of the dialogic, telecommunications-based process, where the central space is under the control neither of party A or party B-, as stated by Mark in the wiki page for the 1st option, and use it in the 2nd one -tracing the lineage of an image and its different applications and implementations throughout the closed system of the Internet-. I undertand the Exquisite Corpse as a playful and free dialogue, with a special interest in the electronic landscape, in which the geographic barriers and the physical presence are eliminated in the art creation process. Therefore, "exquisite corpse and network share their sense of globality, interactivity and convergence", that I would like to exploit.
Exquisite Corpse principles
- It is a collective work
- It should be understood as an entertaining work, with no stylistic pressures (regarding meaning or coherence). It may wish to be intentionally paradoxical.
- Intuition, randomness and coincidentality are appreciated values.
- It should always have an experimental perspective.
- It should supress the "real name" (ego) of the authors, as it must be conceived as a collective project.
- It is a hybrid.
