A Corvair outside the Traffic Jam.
Inside the Traffic Jam. They have their own dairy and rooftop organic garden, there. The food is delicious.
My idea of a great water feature.
Avalon coffee & bakery. One of the first signs of renewal (and gentrification) in what is now midtown. Amazingly strong, great coffee. Also PB&Js in wax paper and twine, to go.
I believe this is a frat house.
There are a lot of empty lots like this, even in the Cass Corridor where renewal is ongoing.
Once upon a time, the Marie Apartments were probably a very nice place to live.
Much like this place, in fact.
Detroit is built for cars, which means it has broad roads, encourages U-turns, and features big alleys like this one where you can park while waiting for someone.
A community garden near Historic Canfield.
Historic Canfield. It's a single block of Victorians guarded by hardwood trees. There are cobblestones, and people in yoga pants.
My favourite house in the Historic Canfield block. The photo doesn't do the details justice. The beveling on the windows is especially stunning.
Garden Bowl, where you hang out in Detroit if you're both underage and from the suburbs.
I enhanced this empty lot so the graffiti would come through a bit more clearly.
Here's how a similar view looks, untouched. It was a very hazy day with lots of reflective particulate matter in the air. On game days at Comerica Park (the new Tigers' stadium), this parking lot is always full.
St. John's Episcopal.
The tabernacle at St. John's.
Comerica Park. This is taken from the street. The new Tigers' stadium was dug deep into the ground, so that the mid-level seats are at street level. This means you can cling to the fence and watch a game from the street if you have no way of paying for a ticket. (Unless it's the All-Star Game. Then MLB gets twitchy about it.)
The Fox Theatre. Sadly, I forgot the giant radio antenna in this shot.
The El Wood, which was transplanted by truck along with the Gem Theatre, to the area between the city's two major stadiums.
The right side are retirement residences. The left side are retired residences.
I love this house.
At the Old Miami.
At Le Petit Zinc, the best French restaurant you will ever find in an industrial park.
My poulet ratatouille crepe with salad.
The poster for Border Town.
A costume and film based on China Miéville's novel, "The City and The City."
A board game in which one person plays a smuggler, and the other plays a border guard.
A colouring book about the border.
My installation, about the future of border security in Istanbul following a split of the city in two.
People visited my installation!
Lots of them, in fact!
Lots of people visited our exhibit.
