Most of the junk consisted of remains from ephemeral art projects that had fallen into disrepair. These projects had previously been installed in the I-Park landscape as environmental sculptures.
The Junk Trail, a reorganization of these materials made accessible by an internal trail, was conceived and built in 2010 by sculptor Marco Dessardo. The purpose of the trail was to make these interesting, but otherwise waste, materials conveniently available – but also inviting – to future artists for re-use.

Music: Birdsongs for the City Dweller, performed
by the Calidore String Quartet
