Exquisite Corpse Belfast – Zagreb

8 Students from Sculpture Time Video Photo Belfast will work collaboratively with 8 Students from the the Department of Aniamtion and New Media at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb for a period of 4 days. Students will collaborate and communicate via the internet to produce a digital exquisite corpse piece of work.

Exquisite corpse is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule (e.g. “The adjective noun adverb verb the adjective noun”) or by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person contributed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exquisite_corpse
This principal could also work with a time line.

You will develop a working relationship with the other group of students by posting images texts, video audio etc online for other students to see. This project is about virtual forms of communication identity and presence and how physical remoteness can be used to develop relationships.

Some of the ideas that were developed – associative photography – a photographic conversation between Matija Djanesic and Jan McNeill:
