dc.description.abstract Unrecognized by most Houstonians, the city is riddled with empty spaces. Abandoned sites are overlooked by denizens of a city that constantly erases its own past, reinventing itself completely anew. Ties to the past are few. These spaces of decay are re-occupied by traces of objects that used to exist there. These fragmented occupations are monitoring stations that provide a link between the individual and the unobserved city, between an unfounded future and a forgotten past. Bound in a matrix of global and local conditions, they map another kind of city, one that is transcendant and ephemeral simultaneously.
