SUGARCREEK CRUISER

As cities develop every square inch of their lands in an attempt to squeeze out every possible dollar, they usually bulldoze everything in sight, discarding the past with the blink of an eye. So, to find this gem, hidden in the natural growth of a newly developed greenway was a delight. Why it wasn’t hauled away along with everything else that once mattered is anyone’s guess, but it makes me happy every day I get to walk by and see it still there, thriving in its broken-down, rusted appearance, daring the viewer to question its presence.  Living in a metropolitan area that is obsessed with growth and attracting tomorrow’s future, I find comfort in holding onto something that revels in not fitting into this shiny, new future we are all so sure will solve our problems. These images are a visual exploration that questions our relationship with these objects and celebrates the allurement of the forsaken and forgotten.
