Demolition Site

I stumbled across this almost-demolished building while visiting some Open Studios yesterday. By tomorrow evening it will probably be gone. The layers of graffiti make the concete walls look like a tapestry, and the fragmented, colorful effect of the few remaining panes of glass hanging against the sky was lovely. One of my ambitions is to be an "artist in residence " on a demolition site, recording things revealed as layers are peeled away. Any demolition contractors reading this?

  1. I also saw this building for the first time during open studios, and got a similar photo:

    I wish I had discovered this place before it was being demolished, it was quite a find both as ruins and a graffiti canvas.
