Beauty In Decay: THE HEIDELBERG PROJECT, DETROIT

 

“I began to see beauty in the ugliness.”

- Tyree Guyton, from Come Unto Me:  The Faces of Tyree Guyton, 1999

 

 

Commencing in 1986, The Heidelberg Project is Detroit native Tyree Guyton’s brain x soul child.

 

A once forgotten slick of tar in a neighbourhood left to die, Heidelberg St. has become an entity unto itself.

 

Heart + Engagement / Urban Decay  =  Heidelberg / Beauty.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I thought The Heidelberg Project was dismantled and laid to rest years ago due to complaints and enforcement of a Detroit city bylaw regarding public trash. I was happy to read via Dangerous Minds that I was mistaken. (Thanks to Danny Rollingstone for the link).

About Laura Dal Farra

 A minimalist with no fixed address. A pursuer of dreams. After a six month adventure training muay thai in Thailand in 2007, Laura Dal Farra returned to her native Canada, sold most of what she owned, and boarded a plane set for Bangkok alone. She spent the next 3.5 years training in traditional muay thai gyms, pushing her limits, and embracing the unknown. Realizing little was being written on the subject, she began to blog about it. Laura Dal Farra is the founder of Milk.Blitz.Street.Bomb.
