Opposing Landscape Structures. B&W Ryerson
These two Opposing Images are of the ever-changing landscapes. The Old World vs. the ever-changing new structures that we are being objectified by.
a. A new Structure being erected at Collage & University Ave. long slender lines. Clean, Sterile, Reflective surfaces. Horizontal lines meet vertical. A small busy intersection with allot of interaction. Simple selection of nature blends in. A view to the new bold future Modernized industrialism in a speedy metropolitan intersection.
b. The Old world Landscapes. Brick porous materials, horizontal and vertical lines are softened by detail; Comprised of rounded hard edges, situated across the street nestled in an alleyway. Dirty and left to be forgotten. No sign of human presence. A view to industrial revolution in its heydays forgotten.
These two images represent were we have come from to a new world. Materials and locations are almost identical. Yet one is demanding of attention vs. the later being hidden in its beauty, where we once were. Trying to forget what our forefathers have built.
