Detroit is the second location in a series of investigations into the mythologies of place as a defining force in our society.
I am particularly interested in Detroit because it is a place that has experienced an active form of extreme erasure, of transience and of loss that has embedded itself on the psyche of those that live there and those that pass through.
My intention is to engage the complexity of Detroit as a lived space as well as its supposed fall from grace; a fall that evokes a very specific pathos and one that has reverberated around the globe as a kind of symbolic foreshadowing of the imminent end of American Empire.
