The 'exquisite corpse' meme has assumed all sorts of subtextual meanings in the net art lexicon, but originally it described the children's game where different people draw parts of the same body without having seen the other parts. 'qaddawah' is an online version of the same game. Mix and match heads, torsos, and legs drawn by several different artists, or click the 'automate' button to generate an endless series of random combinations. You can even submit your own corpse for future dissection. The overall feel of the project is hand-drawn and commendably un-digital. - Curt Cloninger
