Foreclosure Gets Quilted

Now you can get a warm, fuzzy feeling from foreclosure! Urban-planner-turned-artist Kathryn Clark, makes Foreclosure Quilts, "delicate collages of fabric that tell the story of America’s fraying neighborhoods." Clark looks at aerial maps and then pieces together scraps of fabric to portray neighborhoods in Cleveland, Detroit, Las Vegas, Atlanta, and other blighted cities. Cuts holes in the fabric depict razed homes and "raw edges" let us know how fragile we, American Cities, really are. But those stains? That is just where we spilled the beer! [Architizer]
