0024 Pattern Of Growth

Leipzig, 14.4.-24.5.2018, Galerie Drei Ringe, installation views: Sophia Kesting

A walk along Second Avenue, Detroit. Starting in Highland Park, the birthplace of mass produced automobiles, towards New Center. Part of the city's grid structure is the alleyway. It is a narrow road in the middle of every block intended as a back entrance to the individual properties, commonly used to drive the car into the garage. Due to the massive degrowth of Detroit, a lot of properties are abandoned. The alleyways have transformed into more or less accessible, overgrown spaces with time, leftovers of an economical process.
