The as the city continues to grow, our eyes crave clean, sleek, well designed environments. Walk around the corner, explore the alleys behind street-level facades and even the most beautiful architecture might have a differnt story to tell. Paint peels from the walls, basement windows sealed and resealed, and service entry paths never seen by patrons but always by the workers. The top image is peeling plaster, digitally stitched to create a rorschach-esque eye. The bottom image is unaltered, found texture from behind a bank in downtown Greensboro.
