It seems many towns in the western world are replacing their heritage with superficial draws. Living in Birmingham, a city that has lost much of its industry andÂ reshaped itself to accommodate gratuitous shopping, I appreciate a little creativity can help in reviving a city's spirits.
Swoon & other artists are focusing on Braddock, aÂ deceased steel town inÂ the rust belt region near Pittsburgh. With the help of sales from the Transformazium 'Art Makes Eye Contact' show opening in New York on the 11th Oct they hope to start a positive step forward. As a contributer to the show I hope they can raise the amount needed.
