About

The The Exquisite Corpse Project is an SMS-based exquisite corpse application through which people from around North America will help build surrealist stories, which will then be published. The idea is simple: you register on the Website and receive an SMS containing the last sentence entered, to which you reply with your contribution. After a random number of sentences, the system declares the story ended and publishes it on the website, and ask the next participant to start a new story.

At the end of the year, the stories will be collected and artists will be asked to illustrate them.

The money will help pay for the Twilio SMS engine, as well as for the illustration, publication and promotion of the book.

Oh, and I'll soon be adding a short video here.
