Red, White and Ochre.

I will post a panorama of this later, but I was absolutely blown away by this mound of garbage. There is something so beautiful about the intersection and distribution of repeated shapes and densities of material against the walls whose repeating bricks provide a structure for it all to sit against. The photo does not really capture the scale, but it had a quality almost approaching a Richard Serra.

I guess if you can get away from what it is and actually look at in tne abstract, the forms and textures juxtaposed against the red bricks are interestting. In the same way that abadonned factories look beautiful against the green background of the land. I am thinking the steel mills of Penn. or the car factories of Detroit. I like they look like.
