"Abbie" Installation 2013
"Abbie" is a multimedia interactive installation diorama about this 16 year old girl. The installation is a replica of her campsite, this includes the adjustable wagon platform storage bed system, rotting foraged chokeberries, acorns, peppers, sleeping pillow, blanket, pictures, portable grill, discarded food containers, battery power lamp, toy M16a service rifle, 16 replica rounds of ammunition, weather beaten tarp, along with other treasured items carried by Abbie. The surrounding walls frame a projected composite landscape video recording. There is also a small playhouse tape recording with a reading from Abbie's travel diary.
