exquisite copse

A play on the surrealist game Exquisite Corpse, Exquisite Copse
visually rewrites existing works of literature into a forest of word
trees, based on seed words entered by visitors. Each branch grows with
words that might follow in the original text.

The collected trees form a copse, a surrealist landscape and journey
through myriad narratives, created and influenced by both visitor and

Neil Jenkins. 2005

She always pops up when you most need her, I saw Laurie Anderson play
in Bristol, UK, shortly after 9/11, she played O Superman and Let X=X,
seminal and profound in their own right, maybe brave or foolish to play
at that time and context, but appreciated by all.

we have a model of that here, only the alcohol induced setting the
world to rights discussions in pubs has the same outcome...

cynicism aside, is anyone thinking of emigrating ?


"O Superman. O judge. O Mom and Dad. Mom and Dad.
O Superman. O judge. O Mom and Dad. Mom and Dad.
Hi. I'm not home right now. But if you want to leave a
message, just start talking at the sound of the tone.
Hello? This is your Mother. Are you there? Are you
coming home?
Hello? Is anybody home? Well, you don't know me,
but I know you.
And I've got a message to give to you.
Here come the planes.
So you better get ready. Ready to go. You can come
as you are, but pay as you go. Pay as you go.

And I said: OK. Who is this really? And the voice said:
This is the hand, the hand that takes. This is the
hand, the hand that takes.
This is the hand, the hand that takes.
Here come the planes.
They're American planes. Made in America.
Smoking or non-smoking?
And the voice said: Neither snow nor rain nor gloom
of night shall stay these couriers from the swift
completion of their appointed rounds.

'Cause when love is gone, there's always justice.
And when justive is gone, there's always force.
And when force is gone, there's always Mom. Hi Mom!

So hold me, Mom, in your long arms. So hold me,
Mom, in your long arms.
In your automatic arms. Your electronic arms.
In your arms.
So hold me, Mom, in your long arms.
Your petrochemical arms. Your military arms.
In your electronic arms.
