This series deals with vacancy in the American northeast, where deindustrialized regions illustrate the consequences of slow development, industrial migration and globalism. In the wake of these occurrences, the landscape functions as a pasture of misplaced consumer ideology. The promise of the American dream, hardened in 1950′s postwar culture by tract houses and gleaming automobiles was never a universal reality. Still, the idyllic ephemera of the period persists in collective memory. In these postindustrial regions, the myth reveals itself in aged markers of desire.
