The Ethics Of Dust
Jorge Otero-Pailos, an architect/artist, is our favorite kind of preservationist. His bio is all we need to know: "his work rethinks preservation as a powerful countercultural practice that creates alternative futures for our world heritage."
And how. Our favorite project of his is The Ethics Of Dust, consisting of a large latex sheet that pulled off ancient pollution from the Doge's Palace last year at the Venice Bienale. Backlit and freefloating, it's like a Shroud of Turin for architects: a study of time, and the value of recording even the decay of an important icon.
