Sometime in the summer of 2019, I discovered The Wrong Heaven by Amy Bonnaffons. I went to the book’s website, and discovered her other project, 7×7.la.
From the 7×7 website:
Launched in 2015 to facilitate a new kind of interdisciplinary collaboration, each 7×7 invites one visual artist and one writer to engage in a two-week creative conversation. The format, inspired by Surrealist games of the early 20th century, challenges participants to improvise, in their respective disciplines, a spontaneous story that pushes into ever-wilder imaginative terrain. Every finished 7×7 is singular, unclassifiable, and wholly original.http://7×7.la/about/
Finding Surrealist games irresistable, I signed up.
Beginning March 1st, Olivia Kingery and I began to volley work back and forth for 14 days. The full results of our collaboration can be found ______. It would be inappropriate and a copyright violation for me to share the completed game here, but I can share my side of the road.
I went first.
