Re-Opening of Backyard Alaska

Two years, too much ambition, and 1,200 lbs of junk in the making, this exhibit explores stories, truths, myths, dreams and disasters memorialized in our backyards

Working with found objects, archival film and audio as well as original footage and sound, Michael Walsh created an installation that reveals truths and challenges some myths that make Alaska so big.
