Do You Sleeveface at Your Library?

January 25, 2008

Michael Jackson – Thriller, originally uploaded by sweetbabyboy.

Looking for the hottest family program ever for teens at your library…?? Try this neat sleeveface project!  Defined by the original Sleeveface site as “one or more persons obscuring or augmenting any part of their body or bodies with record sleeve(s) causing an illusion”.

Invite teens to search through their parents’ and grandparents’ old LP vinyl album collections for favorite covers of popular recording artists. They need to bring any props they want to use like matching clothes and accessories. Then you provide the digital camera and upload them to your flickr account (your library has one of course…) right there on the spot…!!

Sleevefacing works best when you have several people involved so all family members can work together. You need someone to stage the shot, adjust the angle of the album or clothing, or even help hold the cover. Believe me it is a lot of fun. It took our whole family to organize these Michael Jackson and John Denver shots last weekend…!!

When you try it, link them here in the comments so we can all enjoy your show…
