All on a Mardi Gras day:
This project attempts to document the chaos and communal joy of Mardi Gras day by merging photographs of objects that were acquired on this day with verbal stories that stand out from Fat Tuesday.
How to be part of this Monumental Mardi Gras project:
Participants should submit their favorite item from Mardi Gras day* to be photographed (note all items will be returned). The item should be anything of significance to you from your Mardi Gras day experience; a part of your costume, a throw, something you found, a gift, etc.
*exceptions are made for superb Muses shoes
Next you should submit a short audio story that describes something significant that you remember on Mardi Gras day (cell phone recordings are fine and should be no longer than 30 seconds). This story can be anything you like - it does not have to correlate with your item that will be photographed. The story should be absent of details such as time, sex, race, restaurant/bar names, etc.. All stories should lead with a segue intro such as:
“And then …..
“so what happened next was ….
“meanwhile back at the ranch ….
The end product
The photographed items and audio stories will be joined together in a string of objects and sounds to capture the spirit of Mardi Gras day 2013.
