07: Awry Ecosystem - Melanie Walker, Mis Tree/Mystery
American, b. 1949

Gift of the artist and The Museum Project, NEHMA
Melanie Walker combines photography with sculpture, electronics, puppetry, costumes and sound to create participatory environments that break down the traditional facade for viewers. In her photographic work, much of it has revolved around a fictional family that came to her in a dream. This family is called the Househeads. They have appeared in photographs, installations, performances and shadow shows just to name a few venues.
