Acrylic on keyboard
11 x 14 in
Mariah Reading's - Firewood Keyboard - features acrylic on a keyboard that was found in the E-waste section of the Denali Recycling Center is of the view from the recycling center, based in Tanana Land, Alaska. The original piece has been donated to Denali National Park. The limited closed edition series includes twenty-five 11x14" cold press signed prints with 1/2" white border.
Mariah's time in Denali was spent highlighting the ways the Denali National Park and the Zero Landfill Initiative was and continues to leave no trace. During her 10 day residency at the Toklat River Cabin, Mariah found only one piece of substantial trash left behind. Although the park was virtually spotless, the process of managing waste and recycling in such a remote location is time intensive, expensive and requires a considerable amount of energy. It is an essential part of her work, to share these intricate methods necessary in preserving our wild parks; methods that largely go unnoticed by the public.
