Eventually, these lines, shapes, textures and values will be morphed into the new Federal Courthouse building in downtown Salt Lake City. At this point in the construction effort, however, I’m enjoying the abstract art the workers are creating.
Downtown Salt Lake City has undergone some major reconstruction efforts in the last few years. The newer buildings form a stark contrast between the city’s older structures. Many of the latter have fallen into disuse or are awaiting demolition to make way for more “improvements”.
As I walked along the downtown streets the other day, I came upon what I felt was a striking illustration and visual perspective of the transience of our environment – both natural and manufactured. It caused me to reflect on how we tend to celebrate the death of our past, despite what we lose in the process.
