Game of Art
By: Sal Randolph
The Game of Art is an instructional artwork exploded into an atomic state and reimagined as a game. Could there be a system that expressed every possible artwork as its instruction? A vast library of possibilities? Players in the Game of Art take on shifting roles as “artists” and “critics,” pitting themselves against each other in an attempt to imagine new possible and impossible works of art.
Serve immediately (makes two portions)
By: Chloë Bass
Part telephone, part exquisite corpse, Serve immediately (makes two portions) is an exercise in associative listening. Designed for quick play between pairs, the game works as follows: partners whisper a sentence back and forth to one another, repeating whatever they last heard. Simultaneously, the two players are completing and exchanging exquisite corpse drawings. The interplay between listening and writing/drawing is interrupted by the consumption of candy: a flavor burst to remind the body of the physical elements of active listening.
Each round lasts for two minutes. Play promises to be over-stimulating, giggle-inducing, and mildly exhausting. Increased emotional intimacy (almost) guaranteed. This game is being enacted as research for The Book of Everyday Instruction, Chapter Six: a study of recipes for emotional continuity within established pair relationships. The title, Serve immediately, is a play on both the standard recipe instruction of the same phrasing, and a reminder of the shared physical agility of partner-tennis.
