Detroit is the second location in a series of
investigations into the mythologies of place as a defining force in our society.
I am particularly interested in Detroit because it is a
place that has experienced an active form of extreme erasure, of transience and
of loss that has embedded itself on the psyche of those that live there and
those that pass through. Decadence and erasure evokes a very specific pathos
and Detroit's has reverberated around the globe as a kind of symbolic
foreshadowing of the imminent end of American Empire.
That said; this is an ongoing project in which my intention is
to engage the complexity of Detroit as a lived space as well as its supposed
fall from grace.
