Consisting of fake plants and flowers, toys, cardboard boxes, plastic bags, a television, and other products, Wal-Scape attempts to restore the missing natural landscape of suburban America with the manufactured materials available at your local Wal-Mart. Wal-Scape calls into stark question our value of consumer goods over the natural world.

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.
