Street Layers


Closeup of a street utility box for the CCTV system next to Gyeongbokgung palace. A touristy area near a national monument. Surfaces bear – and bare – the struggle for control over the visible. Residues from unsanctioned advertising, authorities’ dutiful scrapings vainly maintaining decorum, the state watching and enforcing order, while nature mockingly leaves its grimey, rusty mark over it all.
