Lives on the Lawn
Wendy Kwan
fiber based silver gelatin
edition of 6

Back in the summertime we witnessed the removal of items from the buildings to be proceeding in an orderly manner. Trucks carried away appliances, presumably for alternative uses, or at least thoughtful disposal. All changed after one vacant building caught fire and burned to the ground in late fall. After that, the process to get the remaining buildings down accelerated at an unbelievable clip. Appliances, left over personal belongings, as well as interior demolition remnants were ripped out and left strewn over the lawns in front of the buildings. What a sight. What a waste.
