Exquisite corpse

Exquisite corpse, also known as exquisite cadaver from the original French term cadavre exquis or rotating 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.

smartgeometry 2012: manta – acoustically responsive sculpture

designers guillermo bernal, zackery belanger, eric ameres, and seth edwards have sent designboom their project ‘manta’, an acoustically reactivesuspended sculpture developed as part of smartgeometry 2012 a four-day workshop and symposium in troy, new york, USA.the interdisciplinary project is a dynamic manifestation displaying the incorporation of architecture, fabrication, interactive technologyand research in acoustics into an actualized form. ‘manta’ is formed from a system of CNC machined panels and connectors comprisedof high-density polyethylene while it’s shape results from bending stiffness and triangulation. the hanging piece makes use of its rigging,infrastructure and home in an acoustically inert environment in order to become a truly kinetic sculptural work.
