Bethany Griib


Detroit: America’s Motor City

This visual timeline is a response to the ongoing “Blight Project” in Detroit, that has prompted the re development of particular abandoned sites such as the Packard automotive plant owned by Ford, and the now contaminated Fisher Body plant (which is sadly still abandoned). Bethany has chosen to focus on these 2 sites, taking an interest in the stark contrasts between when the automotive sites were prosperous and how quickly they became dis used, as well as the beauty of them. This timeline illustrates the life cycles of these sites, telling a narrative through the rhythm and compositions of structural elements.
