Item details

Abandoned properties are both created by communities for social good and then collectively discarded when their purpose is no longer desired. Once the Indiana and Michigan Electric Company and later adapted into the East Bank Athletic Club; the Commerce Center basement is a marker of South Bend’s history, social needs, and goals for the past century. My work responds to the progression of time within this history.
