home for the holidays /// is this your new house?


I was back in Detroit over Thanksgiving and was craving some over-due exploration. I would have never posted pics like this before while living in the D but now being out in LA it seemed comforting (and not as terribly cliche) to post. However......a friend of mine did point out that artists here capitalize on immigration/mexican-us relations as much as detroiters live off of their fading ruins. It is pretty strange and sad to be removed and come back to witness even more gorgeous structures becoming enveloped into the land and joining the urban prairie. So that said the reason I had to make this post is because of the above "dwell-ish" house that was newly plopped on to the block of St. Aubin. This was an area I have fond memories of and would drive around often enough to notice the empty plots grow and maybe the serial killers too. So, if this is your recent addition or you know about this structure let me know. You certainly have some balls and creative intentions.

Completely awesome Ann. I wonder where Chicago would fit into your theoretical cocktail?
