Peak Pandemonium

Peak Pandemonium
This is a project I'm working on to raise awareness about the coal mining industry's method of mountain top removal.  It's an interactive piece in which the audience will remove the top of the circus-themed mountain I've constructed and inside they will find free prints.  On the back there is a written description of the form of mining and the irreversible effects it's had on the family's and land of the Appalachian Mountain Range.   On the front of the paper, there is an image of a business man playing with toy mountains, blowing of the tops for pure enjoyment.

This piece will be installed at Alpine Valley Ski Resort for a few weeks outside of the main chalet.  After that it will travel from place to place around Milwaukee.  Keep an eye out for the Peak Pandemonium.
