Urban Topographies

From Urban Omnibus, Linda Pollak's simple 'Cuts & Patches' explores remnant disturbances within the urban environment as 'topographies' (which more often than not tend to be coal chute covers from a long-gone infrastructure). Check out the great photos and interview.

"As traces, these cuts and patches allow us to perceive physical and social dynamics of an urban site over time. Looking at them together, they are like a kind of archaeology without physical excavation: they register different eras of construction and settlement, the movement of water, the movement of pedestrians."
