… you’re an artist with a vision and a background in civil engineering who learns about a beautiful building back home, waiting to be demolished because it was heavily damaged in an earthquake? You build a great installation in it as an “Hommage to The Lost Spaces”. I love this idea, how awesome would it be to find works like these in/on/around the ruins of buildings all over the world… In an urban world, it would add some color. In the countryside, it would make us nostalgic for the past days in which it was thriving. And in general: remind us of the losses & sadness that comes with decay and desolation.
