Ben briefly mentions “rapid fire exquisite corpse” and I had to look it up and share this in case you didn’t know about it either! Cadavre exquis (exquisite corpse) is a collaborative drawing approach first used by surrealist artists to create bizarre and intuitive drawings.
Thank you so much for listening!
