We went behind the scenes with artist Georg Long to check The Music Box: Resonant Memory, a project created by New Orleans Airlift in partnership with The Georgia Institute of Technology and artists George Long and Justin Rabideau.
We filmed this video during the production of a documentary-style video about George Long and Jessamine Starr's Good Food Truck, part of the series Creative Juices on ArtsATL.com. Funding for Creative Juices is provided by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners.

Long’s work explores longing and the physical activities that people undertake during periods of transition, loss, and searching. With Sorts, he creates a mental landscape that is a collection of collections, mental debris, emotional sortings, piles of compartmentalizations. Into this setting he imposes figurative phrases as metaphors for the psychological chores we perform. As a dynamic and constantly changing piece, the projections and drawn elements will evolve daily over the course of a month.
