This is an Exquisite Cadeaver, a drawing game from 1920s France. One person draws the top and covers up all of the drawing except the bottom 1.3 cm of the drawing and passes it to the next person to create a section. The next person draws the middle section and covers up everything except the bottom 1.3 cm of the drawing and passes it to the last person who draws the bottom section. This poster depicts how we respond during our most recent attempt at control over chaos. Whenever we scramble to maintain that control within uncertainty infinite possibility - both frightening and wonderful, always exist.
