There Is No Detroit

December 24, 2014

I spent two weeks exploring Detroit.

I met activists, urban farmers, sculptors of 40-foot pieces of recycled aluminum and the Executive Director of Economic Development. I learned about Downtown’s renaissance and the city’s plan for the future. I drove by empty lots and burned out buildings with my jaw hanging down.

I was looking for a story tell. I came out feeling there was no story. There are many stories that contradict and interconnect. The past is crashing into the future. Capitalism meets anarchy meets myth. A projection of the American psyche.
