Epic Exquisite Corpse site

A new version of parlour game Exqusite Corpse yesterday appeared online on a site where users can draw whatever they want in one of a million drawing slots, linking their imagery to lines and shaded areas visible only at the edge of their “canvas”…

Remember that game where you draw the legs of something, fold the paper and pass it to someone else to draw the next part of a body? Some people seem to call it Consequences and other people call it Exquisite Corpse. Regardless of what you happen to call the game, a new version of it exists online at epicexquisitecorpse.com where users can draw whatever they want in one of a million drawing slots, linking their imagery to lines and shaded areas visible only at the edge of their “canvas”…

The site has been created by current Sony Music creative department intern, Xavier Barrade with Wake Up Web Solutions. It went live yesterday but the drawing is already getting quite big. Check it out (and use the magnifying glass zoom tools to either close in on detail or zoom out to check out the vastness of the drawing) at epicexquisitecorpse.com
