Final result of Motion Corpse No. 32

Motion Corpse No. 32

Challenge and Collaboration, October 2017

In this challenge the process translated into a motion design challenges, with the idea for one animator to pass off the final frame of their sequence to the next animator, who would then use that as the first frame of their sequence and a color swatch we all should use.

Motion Corpse is a collaboration challenge based on the Surrealist game called “Exquisite Corpse” what I was so lucky to get the opportunity again to anticipate in because of a withdraw from one of the participants. That game starts with one person drawing something and then folding the paper so that the next person can only see a small part of it before making their contribution. After everyone takes a turn, the final illustration is revealed to all participants. This random process creates unexpected combinations that could not have been planned out in any conscious way. These happy accidents can be inspirational design tools.
