Marigny Mardi Gras.  This two-level collage was created from photographs taken during the 2012 Mardi Gras celebrations in the New Orleans neighborhood called the Faubourg Marigny. Gathering site for participants in the St. Anne's Parade, this parade represents, for me, the most authentic Mardi Gras experience in the Big Easy. I used inch-thick, circular pieces of wood for the two levels of the piece (approx 40" diameter) taht are mounted on lazy susan mechanisms, so both outer and inner discs rotate independently of each other.
