In conjunction with the exhibition In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States, featured at LACMA January 29, 2012–May 6, 2012, artist Jody Zellen created this app for iPad and iPhone. Inspired by the "exquisite corpse" parlor game popular amongst early 20th century surrealist artists, the app allows users to create collages using images from the museum and the camera roll.
