    Story Boards Collaboration Finale 

    Katy Back to her Roots

    Art Oluja and I have enjoyed collaborating to bring you the new (and final) Story Boards and the invitation to submit your writing.

    Your challenge: Write whatever you feel inspired to after contemplating the 15 pictures. Shuffle them around, reorder and pick up to 5 faves to go with your work.. Maybe a poem, a short story, or even a series of creative captions.. Send them in via notecard, email or Slack to Pearl Grey and get ready to be read! Your stories will be featured here, at MU Stories!
    More details:
    Include your name or nom de plume you want the writing credited too.
    I’ll be posting your writing and chosen pictures to MU Stories. If you have, or want, a username and password to do so yourself please contact Art. (The pictures are available in the media file.)
    I would also like to post the collaborations to my MU journal blog as I have with the previous ones.
    Any questions not covered here? Ask away.
    The Story Boards and some background about the location and our inspiration can be found at MU Creativity.

    New Collaborations from Pearl & Friends

    Just like the Internet itself, at MU, Collaboration Rules! And no one’s doing it better than Pearl’s Story Board series.

    In her new Man, Woman and Dog project, Oona, Elle, Paypabak, Veyot, and Neeva all offer their vision inspired by Pearl’s image series.


    You guys are so awesome!

      This isn’t the newest collaboration; it’s the first one of four that I’ve done. I’ve been posting them to my MU journal blog. It’s come to my attention that content is wanted for MU Creativty and now to KPO Gallery which (yay!) wants to include some writing too. The project has been changing, as projects do, by discovering easier ways and being told what is ‘wrong’ in the eyes of others. This first image/story had only four pictures and five submitted stories. The next two sets of photos, while interesting, were much more ‘prompts’ than photo art worthy of display. The last set, well I did a lot of work on it and it has seven pictures and two stories besides my own. Consideration was given to presentation in the gallery, which Myra is planning for this week, and to the presentation in MU Stories. This first set was the best choice for that. Art Ojula and I are almost ready with the next and last image/story project which has been planned for better presentation on MU Stories and the KPO Gallery. There will be about five weeks to write, it’s very flexible and I will be sending out personal invitations if need be. It’s interesting that so far, some of my favorite stories are from people who say they aren’t writers!

    Thank You Veyot 

    Veyot took the time to pull together a lovely wreath incorporating flowers she sent us all to decorate. What a lovely project and idea to showcase unity here at MU! Thank you Veyot! <3

    Three pictures to write a short story about or whatever for the first half of April. They are also rezzed outside in back of my studio at Vashti 4. They’re easier to see here. Instructions in the post. Have fun.

    The First Four Photo/Story Collaborations 

    Neeva Torok, Veyot, Paypabak Writer and Elle Thorkveld have each written something to go with some photographs I took. I’ve organized each entry into it’s own page on my MU blog. Here’s the link to the first one; the other three are in the next posts when you scroll forward.

    Everyone is welcome to participate. It can be in any medium. The original instructions are in a post I linked to here a few days ago titled Invitation to Collaborate.

    • Neeva 18:01 on 12/03/2015 Permalink | Reply

      That worked really well Pearl! I loved seeing the different things everyone saw in your pictures. Elle’s story is very hiku-like, Veyot and paypabak each add their own rich imaginations. The way you gave each version it’s own post really frames each collaboration better now.

    Invitation to Learners 

    Here’s something you can participate in at your own pace and in your own time. I took four photographs that can be illustrative of a story alone, in combination, or all together. You can write a short story, make a photograph or short machinima.

    This is an experiment for me as I’ve never done anything like this. It’s outside of my comfort zone. But I’m willing to see how others might respond. If you want to participate and don’t have a WP blog,  no worries. There are details about note cards, etc. in the post.

      Awesome Pearl! I’m looking forward to this.

      Here is my story from your pictures, Pearl. Feel free to post it where you like.

      “Let me show you my movie” he said, fiddling with the projector. “It’s about a dog.”

      But she could see only a swirl of light against the screen.

      “Is this all?”

      He shrugged apologetically. “I had no script”

      “That can be remedied,” she said. (She was a practical woman). “I’ll just sit right here and type you one. You said it was about a dog?”

      “Yes, it’s about a dog”

      She clacked for awhile on the keys of the ancient typewriter. The script began to take shape. It was the story of a man, a woman, and a peculiar, overstuffed chair. It was the story of stairs that defied gravity and lead to the unknown. It was the story of a chandelier of cut crystal that forever danced its light across a dusty floor.

      “Thank you,” he said at last when she had finished and they were standing together at a respectful and chaste distance. “Thank you, But it was supposed to be about a dog.”
