Exquisite Forest

This new website, This Exquisite Forest, allows people across the net to add to each others animations using the in-browser drawing toolset. The interface allows us to browse the tree of each animation seed to see where the various artistic talents are taking things. Unlike the idea of The Exquisite Corpse that inspired the idea, here we can see all the animations and branches, in fact that interface is quite nice to explore.
With the backing of Google and the Tate Modern gallery I am hoping this will attract some primo artistic talent.



There are some nice seeds there in the forest, but few of them are carried through with much quality. I quite like Evolving and the Forgotten Gardens of Xanadu.
