The Anchorage Museum developed a large, multi-part interactive art installation that opened during the Conference on Global Leadership in the Arctic held in Anchorage in August, 2015. A series of triptychs featured contemporary images of the Arctic by Alaskan photographers, images that were revealed as people took away the wooden blocks that featured Arctic words in English, Alaska Native languages, Russian, Icelandic, Finnish, Norwegian, and Danish. The blocks became keepsakes for participants and the public and on the backs of the installations was another area to interact, where people participated by responding to questions about their own place in the world.

Received the Best of Show award from the AIGA, Alaska Chapter, 2015.

Project in collaboration with McCool Carlson Green, Davis Construction, Karen Larsen, and Chad Taylor.
