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.
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....
