SOMNAMBULE*

(* ”sleepwalker” in French)

Game for children

Tear-proof paper, cotton cord, beech rod

 

 

 

 

Based on the model of The Exquisite Corpse created by the Surrealists,

this game offers a moment of intimacy as it flies over the child’s unconsciousness.

The child writes. Puts a piece of paper on each rod.    

Lays down under it.

Head in the clouds.

Sentences are created.

 

 

“At one point, a sleepy oil lamp dances with a fuzzy reflection while speaking a monologue”

 

“In the shadow of a rock, a flopping albatross scrutinizes an incompetent musical instrument while pulling up its socks”

 

“Somewhere, a felted collector of lamps stretches with a twisted drop of water while walking on his tiptoes”
