paper

Living away from Louisiana for most of the year has really made me appreciate the things that I once took for granted about my home state. Today I’m putting the finishing touches on my Mardi Gras day costume (still deciding on a color for it), made from paper “flowers” from my installation at the Voodoo Ballerina Kingcake Soiree. I feel so lucky to live in such a  magical place, where its perfectly normal to spend hours working on a grand costume for a Tuesday morning in New Orleans.

Big Gas attacks Gasland

Shame on them.

This is not surprising really, considering what the Oil and Gas Industries have done/are doing to those who speak out against them down here in Louisiana…

AN OPEN LETTER TO JOURNALISTS FROM GASLAND DIRECTOR JOSH FOX IN RESPONSE TO ATTACKS BY GAS INDUSTRY

Affirming Gasland: A de-debunking document in response to specious and misleading gas industry claims against the film.
