the clouet gardens project, new orleans fringe festival
experimental participatory public event, november 19 – 23 2014
- A public occupation of a de facto occupied territory which masquerades as a public park. Exposure, redress. Tents, speaking station, and control wheel. Telephone descends from ancient tree. Searchlight scans the perimeter. Text banners of the Coastal Erosion lawsuit against 94 gas and oil companies spans the width of the park. Bureaucratic file boxes on parachutes were caught up in the trees. Morse code clicks, peepers beep and a train roars.
