A Game to Play on Friday November 14th 2008 between 2pm and 6pm at A Foundation, Liverpool (2008)
In November 2008 at A Foundation, Liverpool, Carson & Miller played a game of their own devising based on the principle of question and answer (founded in the surrealist game of exquisite corpse).
This one-off live event was the first time Carson & Miller had played one of their games within a gallery setting, allowing the audience to not only view the playing of the game but also to be invited to take part. The game explored some of the principles of Carson & Miller's artists' book The Exquisite Fold (2007), a publication developed by the artists in collaboration with Dr. Patricia Allmer and Dr. John Sears. These four practitioners collaborated again in 2008, writing the journal article Your Turn: experiments in narrative and play in The Blue Notebook: Journal for Artists’ Books (Vol. 3 No. 1: October 2008) - see below.
