Final Exquisite Corpse:
Exquisite Corpse - A Round Robin Project by Phillip Ho

Alternatively, you could call this, “The Creepiest Exquisite Corpse You Ever Saw,” because this is basically what the final image (above) looks like.

The Exquisite Corpse Round Robin project was a collaborative project done using scanograms and a set of instructions done in Adobe® Photoshop. Every one in the class was given a number between 1 and 16, and our goal is to work together as a group of three from lowest number to highest number (for example, 12-13-14).

The basics of it is that one person begins the Exquisite Corpse by composing their original scanogram so that it started with the bottom (or in my case, the top) portion of the original image. Then, we share that file to the person with the next highest number who will work on the middle section of the corpse based on what they are given in the bottom section of the corpse (or in my case, the top section). After that, that person will share their work with the person with the next highest number than them, who will work on the remaining section of the corpse based on what they are given in the middle section of the corpse. Once that is all done, the person returns the corpse to the original person (the one with the original scanogram), who will use blending modes, masking, adjustment layers, etc. in Photoshop to create a smooth transition based on what everyone did on their part.

I used images from the web for two files I was given, (11-excorpse.tif & 10-11-excorpse.tif), in order to create something unique in each composition I did (for the former, it was the middle section, the latter was the top section). For a list of images I used and where they are sources from, check out the Box Note file linked here:
