Consisting of fake flowers and plants, toys, cardboard boxes, plastic bags, a television, and other products purchased from a local Wal-Mart, Wal-Scape attempts to restore the landscape that has been removed with the materials now found at that location. Further mining my interest in these massive retail spaces, Wal-Scape calls into question our value of manufactured goods over nature.
Wal-Scape was first installed at Greylock Arts as part of the group exhibit Being There: A Geocoded Landscape in May 2008. In May 2009 Wal-Scape was re-installed at the Storefront Artist Project as part of the group exhibit Another Island.
