We no longer look toward the future for technology and progress to elevate our lives. The remnants of past generations stay behind and we become stewards of these icons of a growing culture both physically and metaphorically. I continually draw inspiration from places around where I live, particularly sites in older areas hidden from the flow of traffic. Places not yet desirable for redevelopment. I see businesses leaving up old damaged signs and raising new signs in front of the old. The original signs--having lasted decades--are then semi-obscured by inexpensive digital prints. This forms a vision of history no longer being removed for the sake of progress but rather left as a shadow of inception. This contemporary aesthetic is seen within the places we live as well. Layers of wallpaper and paint hide a history that continually bubbles through to the surface.
