Here's a video I made for Memorial Day Weekend, at the request of a few non-profits in town. It's been a while since I've done a war video... a long while. it was a powerful event. Thanks to Anne Nixon who coordinated all the artists, and thanks to all the volunteers who put their time into the project. Here's the video synopsis:
A group of artists gathered on Memorial Day Weekend in Homer Alaska to remember Alaskan soldiers who had fallen during the Iraq War. 108 pairs of combat boots to symbolize our Alaskan troops and 400 pairs of shoes and sandals to represent the Iraqi civilians deaths. Here is a short video interview with Charlie Gibson, one of the volunteers who participated in the event.
