day 295 – four spokesPosted: September 16, 2011
There is a cosmology of destruction and re-growth that stems from the things people throw away. These objects become part of a microcosm that is growing and/or decaying, and being consumed and consuming. On the larger scale this decomposition is an evolution of space. These sites can neither be considered pristine nature nor cultural landscapes; rather they represent a state of harmonious decline and re-growth.
On one level I am captivated by the beauty of these spaces, on another I am also fascinated by their entropic evolution. Entropy tangles and erodes the contours of the landforms and the built environment; it blurs distinguishing lines between interior and exterior, nature and culture redefining these spaces as other than nature made or human made.
