machine meditation VII: urban deconstruction
inspired by the "biomech" album by Ocean Machine as well by Gibsons short story "Winter Market" and, most notably, the character of the worn-down industrial artist making art out of junk and crap. Looking at our current cities, letting aside all the junk and garbage we tend to create in our everyday lifes, I wonder what sort of "art" a talented "artist" could make, say, out of our old (1970s...) industrial housing buildings, huge installments which are hardly "designed" and/or visually appealing, which adhere to the "form-follows-function" mantra even more than Bauhaus possibly ever did, which some consider just plain ugly... Reusing buildings for art? I don't know... but it makes me think.
