I was thinking about how to create that nonsensical atmosphere that pervades Wonderland. I remembered a word game that my friends and I used to play years ago. It was called Garbage. I thought it might be a fun brainstorming technique for this collab. The way it works is one person thinks of any word and the next person thinks of a word that relates to the first word in their mind. So for example, I'll start it off with the word "Wonder." So maybe that makes someone else think of "bread" (as in wonderbread). Then the next person uses "bread" to come up with a new word. For example, "table." We could then combine this string of seemingly unconnected words to create poems, stories and images. So maybe someone could create an image of a table constructed out of slices of bread. Maybe I'm making no sense, but of course the goal is creating nonsense. Let's play and see what kind of absurd things we can create.
Oh, and if it's not clear from my explanation, the first word is "Wonder."
