ROOFTOP I + FRAGMENTS V

 

Seth Clark’s work focuses on deteriorating architecture. These structures, designed to be huge forces of permanence, are continually being challenged, destroyed and forgotten. He sees an inherent honesty in the face of his subject. Among all of the clutter—the shards of wood and layers of rubble—there remains a gentle resolve. As Clark works, he studies these structures incessantly. The buildings, often on the brink of ruin, have something very energized and present trying to escape from their fragmented reality.

Cal and I never figured out a system for who would tuck in behind the other as we approached other cyclists, always fumbled at the last minute with our brakes squealing and gears snagging, tires cutting zigzags across one another as we struggled for balance when moving so slowly, indecisively.

I am thinking about the woman I met, a friend of a friend, who told me how her intestines were removed so her baby could be born.
