(Effacement) St John the Divine (North Wall) (December 2014)

005 006

The construction continues to go up along the north wall of St John the Divine on 113th Street. If a cathedral is an image, to what can we compare this? The construction covers up the image, secluding it from view. More pictures to come as I continue to document its effacement. We begin to lose the wall from view.
