Tennessee Flood 2010

Tennessee Flood 2010This was inspired by the flooding in TN in 2010. Each object represents something lost in the flood: a cell phone represents communication, a key represents the homes and businesses, a fish skeleton charm represents the loss of wildlife. The parts are embedded in clear resin (for water) and covered with clay-mache for the toxic mud that coated everything when the water receded.
