Chris Milk: This Exquisite Forest

Aaron Koblin and Chris Milk’s newest HTML5 venture (following on from '3 Dreams of Black' & 'The Johnny Cash Project') is a digital take on the classic surrealist game of exquisite corpse. In 'This Exquisite Forest', each tree represents an animation created by improvised collaboration. Users create short animated films that build off one another as they explore a specific theme. The result is a collection of branching narratives resembling trees. This idea builds on the concept behind 'The Johnny Cash Project' in which users could submit drawings to contribute towards a music video for the song 'Ain't No Grave.' We're looking forward to seeing where Chris takes this "user generated" concept next.
