New Orleans stories have a way of taking on a life of their own without any outside help. So, just call this a little nudge.
This is The New Orleans Story Booth — an interactive art experience that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and film projections to collect and share the city’s best stories. Over the next year, it will travel to some of our biggest festivals (more on that below), giving you the chance to record your own.
As you tell your story, the AI will trigger film projections based on what you say and how you say it.
For instance, if you tell a story about a concert, we may project footage of a brass band on Frenchmen Street. If you’re really excited about it, we’ll cover you in warm, beautiful textures, colors, and iconography from the city’s streets.
