The creator of the 100 Stone Project, a powerful art installation on Point Woronzof in Anchorage, Alaska.
"100 Stone Projectis a statewide creative civic engagement and social art project that facilitated the capture of hundreds of Alaskans' personal stories of wellness management in sculptural form. At its zenith, the project installed a population of 85 human figures into the tidal beach at Point Woronzof Overlook Park, walking into the icy waters of the Inlet. Each figure was sculpted from and by people who are directly affected by persistent emotional pressures. Once finished, the figures became the physical encapsulation of hundreds of unique experiences of vulnerability resulting from life events such as trauma, grief, chronic illness, mental illness, substance abuse, and other difficult life circumstances. Each symbolized powerful stories of resilience in the face of the marathon that is self-care and management."
