THE GORY DETAILS PROJECT is Art of Bleeding's audio survey of medical emergency narratives -- stories describing your broken bones, burns, cuts, and crashes.

Recordings are collected two ways:

1) IN-PERSON: Occasionally we take to the streets, traveling and recording stories in our ambulance. If you'd like to be notified about these sessions, please sign up for our event list.

2) THE GORY DETAILS HOTLINE: 1-888-467-8535. Call day or night, follow the recorded instructions, and leave your story.
LISTEN to stories from the Gory Details Audio Libary.

READ The Los Angeles Times article from the early days. The Gory Details Project started in 2006, and after a two-year hiatus, has now resumed with an emphasis on video (see below).





GORY DETAILS VIDEO SERIES
In Autumn 2008 The Art of Bleeding began producing of a series of short- videos based on stories collected. These videos feature dubious re-enactments and analysis by Art of Bleeding mascot Abram the Safety Ape, RT the Robot Teacher, Dr. Moody, and the AoB Nurses. Like our online audio collection, these videos treat stories in terms of anonymous case study, however, we're also interested in working with storytellers able to share video or photographic documentation of their scars and accidents. We can't guarantee any particular story will be chosen, but if you’re interested in seeing your personal tale of woe reinterpreted in terms of a tragically misguided children's show, do please contact us.

Watch Art of Bleeding's YouTube Channel for forthcoming episodes or sign up for our mailing list to be alerted when new installments appear.

GUIDELINES FOR YOUR RECORDING
Stories must recount your own true experiences. Major injuries, colorful minor injuries or any emergency-room-worthy illness are all suitable. Stories should be under a couple of minutes. Mispeaks and tangents may be edited out. Stories that appear to be fabricated will be discarded. Please don't scrimp on details: the exact sound you heard when that ligament tore, the scent you smelled when your hair caught fire, etc.
ANONYMITY
Storytellers can identify themselves either by their real name, first name and last initial, or a pseudonym, but we do need some sort of name for cataloging. If you choose to leave an email contact, we can let you know in advance when and how your clip will be used. You may, if you choose, also provide a link you would like posted along with your recording when it goes online.
