space and time

creaky steps, broken windows, musty, drafty passage ways, crumbling paster and then you see a dusty old curtain or a rusted out tea kettle and suddenly images of the family that once shared these spaces appear in your mind. these photos by christoph morlinghaus (via bldgblog) reminded me of a time that my friend and i snuck a peak in an old abandoned mansion out in west hampton. i remember even the beds were left behind, sheets and all as if summer ended and for whatever reason, they never returned. there is so much more in these photos than old dilapidated interior space. i also can't help but think of the work of gordon matta-clark.
