audrey Samson [ca] - Train Journeys, 3:38, 2006

the train journey story is a collaborative effort of more than a hundred passengers traveling the dutch rail
system. they each added their contribution of a few lines only knowing the last line of what the previous
passenger had written (in the spirit of the exquisite corpse method). thereby creating a story, somewhere
between fiction and absurdity, reflecting to some extent the thoughts, dreams, banalities and discontents
of the passengers on that day.
