Cities of You

City #3, Visit #1: Zodsti

20 x 16", Gouache and Pen on Paper

When you visit Zodsti, city of dares, and see the construction of new buildings, you will notice that citizens assemble four structures at a time. The first three structures are built to meticulous specification, while the fourth structure is built to collapse. Citizens reason that this is to understand the limits of their materials and design. But some admit that there is a certain lure to the destruction of something so large, and capturing a glimpse of something that, for a moment, should not have existed.
