Apropos our work Imperfect City / Imperfect State for the exhibition imPERFECT City, we received the following email on April 14th, 2013 from Eric Leshinksy:

Hello,  John + Jeanne.  I made my pilgrimage to the Bob Kettner memorial on friday morning, April 12, arriving at the site at 9:17am. It was my last day in Wilmington and seemed appropriate to visit the memorial as part of the other rituals I was doing that morning to close out my latest stay at the museum. I visited in the midst of a driving rain storm which had swollen the streambed quite a bit, a small waterfall was created by water running from the street into the stream, and all of the surrounding vegetation was incredibly lush. Aside from the occasional passing cars, the site was an oddly idyllic place for a memorial. I hope the attached photos might give a sense of this.


Below are Eric’s pictures and the first and second from the Panoramio page, which were made on and uploaded on January 11th, 2013.

The memorial appears to have changed little; the landscape, more.
