my new series of disappeared

here's the polaroid proof of the building I cannot wait to disappear. . .a new innovation for me, in that I am figuring out how to use a real medium format camera. . .feelz so good and makes a superior image to paint over!

I just love this particular location (scott blvd at cumberland mall) . . .been watching it since spring! it's the perfect size commercial building, so beautiful and petite with it's glass windows and awesome leftover typology. a picturesque showroom in front of an accidental bamboo grove. I especially appreciate the empty car dealerships along our downtrodden highways! these spaces are so symbolic of our dematerializing times. I much prefer them empty. they make a great aesthetic for the future. . . imagine them as roller skating parks, gardened piazzas for outdoor cafes and life music : )
