Why Abandonment ? Part 1

There is a lot of coverage of abandoned places in the various Afterdays Media projects - the blog, the videos, the music, the new book, etc. The point to all of this is not about emptiness itself, but what vacancy and decay can say about our own culture and its environments. Little perspectives that generally cannot be had while such places are still alive.

Here are a few examples that basically speak for themselves. Irony, fragility, false promise, rapid extinction, inadvertent beauty, etc. More from the mildewing Afterdays Archive soon....
