Chai 拆
to destroy, to take down
Chai is the word that is painted in red on buildings before it is torn down.  

This is a project I started in the 2011 Fall.  The purpose of this project is to show and document this change. With the positive growth of China comes heartache for others.  Buildings marked with the word CHAI means that it will be torn down and these individuals will be forced to leave their homes and some with government subsidy. There is sadness and beauty at the same time.  

Join me as I update this project.
