Die linden Lüfte sind erwacht,
Sie säuseln und wehen Tag und Nacht,
Sie schaffen an allen Enden.
O frischer Duft, o neuer Klang!
Nun, armes Herze, sei nicht bang!
Nun muss sich alles, alles wenden.

Day de Dada Exquisite Corpse 

Chateau de Dada Exquisite Corpse

On 3/13/10 artists met at Chateau de Dada for crepes and poetry.  Random poems were generated using an online dada poetry generator.  Results were immediately read aloud and instantaneously posted to Facebook.

Delicious  sweet and savory crepes were served.

We then went to several Second Saturday venues including 15 Cent, Art at Bay and the Assembly Room.  We created Exquisite Corpse Poems and read them out loud.

Phone Poem is a completely free ‘exquisite corpse’ style game that records words from you and four other players to create a nonsensical audio poem that anyone on the internet can hear.

It’s like MadLibs, except with a phone.

You can play right now by calling 310-734-4390! It only takes a minute, and then you can pass the game on to a friend if you like.
