Industrial Abstract

A few hardy wildflowers still hold shriveled, faded leaves and just the seeds left from abundant flowers blooming around industrial debris. The debris itself is most interesting, a huge metal spool alternately rusting in various patterns with a few flecks of turquoise paint left for effect. The contrast of the delicate, brittle flowers washed by the sun and the solid, heavy object held in shadow is perhaps the story of how nature will always try to find a way back when it’s been pushed aside and buried, renewing itself slowly but surely, while manmade things slowly but surely sink into the soil.
