Layer Tennis

Layer Tennis

Coudal Partners will be hosting a series of live design events on Friday afternoons called Layer Tennis. This is How it works:

Two artists (or two small teams of artists) will swap a file back and forth in real-time, adding to and embellishing the work. Each artist gets fifteen minutes to complete a “volley” and then we post that to the site. A third participant, a writer, provides play-by-play commentary on the action, as it happens. The matches last for ten volleys and when it’s complete, everyone visiting the site votes for a winner.

This past Friday was the 1st Match, Shaun Inman vs. Kevin Cornell. Designer/programmer vs. designer/illustrator.
The match is based on using elements from the previous volley, or taking off using the concept. Sounds complicated, but once you watch a match go off you get the idea of it.

Here are a few highlights of the match
Layer Tennis - Shaun Inman vs. Kevin Cornell

The match was very close. They will be announcing the winner of the match this week. Ill be keeping an eye for the winner.

Be sure to make it every friday to watch the matches as they happen LIVE. You can also follow them using their Twitter feed.
