Sometimes our walk-throughs of old buildings are intense — this room was semi-intact, on the windowsill was a folded up piece of newsprint with the horserace info of the day…. someone sat in this chair — waiting for that phone to ring — for who knows how long and no one ever moved a thing since they — you know…..disappeared into the ether….Modernism was born from being afraid and spooked by this sort of thing. Pretending that no one dies and that things never change. Well they do — and they do — and there is nothing wrong with it. Watch it and feel it passing through you — it’s called the present and it’s moving. It does not stand still and never will.
