The journey is at least as much fun as getting to the destination. That's always the big clue. I'm putting up a site, http://cargocrash.thefirehoop.net
and placing this art description there. From there, people can start crystallizing their vision of the cargo crash. Prolly take me a day or two after I post to get something up.
What I'm thinking about:
Daily press conferences: learned scientists, sobbing mothers, cranks, reporters, gold diggers.
Cargo scattered around the site: suitcases with artifacts, possessions, paraphenalia
Signage about what happened, how the plane went down, who was on it,
Creating a persona of the person you want to put in the crash site: who they were, how they lived, what their life was like, mapping them out so they become a real person to firstname.lastname@example.org
. - ping me if you're on board already.
