Event Challenge #6: In Memoriam to George Maciunas

Your assignment: create a video based on a score supplied by the event artist of the week. Make a video and (if it’s a small file) submit it to exqisitecorpsefestival at gmail dot com or (if it’s a large file) email exquisitecorpsefestival at gmail dot com to request a link to our dropbox.  Our favorite video each week will win a free ticket to the festival (just one, but there’s no limit to how many weeks you can win). Here’s this week’s challenge:

“In Memoriam to George Maciunas #1” by GEORGE BRECHT (1966)
A performer in a bowler hat sits behind a table on which a metronome has been placed with a nebulizer. The metronome is set at andante or 60. In time with the beat of the metronome, the performer alternately salutes the audience and sprays his own throat with the nebulizer.

And this week’s small print:
1. Deadline is noon on January 30th.
2. All submissions become property of the Exquisite Corpse Festival; by submitting you also agree to have the video screened at the Festival.
3. Winner receives a pass to the 2011 Exquisite Corpse Festival. Play again next [and every] week. There’s no limit to how many weeks you can win, so keep submitting and you can win every week!
