Detroit is the kind of city that you really need to sink your teeth into. You can’t just figure it out in a drive by or weekend get-away you need some time to get to know the local haunts and the best scavenge piles. Me and my peeps have got a bunch of press lately… we made the cover of the Detroit Metro Times with a huge story by Michael Jackman and Donna Terek has featured us in her column Donna’s Detroit for the Detroit News.

Juxtapose magazine also did a little follow-up about the “Treasure Nest” on the blog which you can check out here and all of the photos were taken by Faythe Levine: gallerist, blogger, filmmaker, photographer, author of Hand Made Nation, and expert on all things DIY. Also check out Fecal Face Dot COM To see more of Faythe’s photos and Monica Canilao’s solo show at the SkyHigh gallery in Milwaukee and our Detroit Treasure Nest!!

So like I have said before if you are interested in visiting and or helping out on this big project please send me a comment – Detroit will love you too

I had heard a lot of talk recently about the dirt cheep properties located in and around Detroit and started seriously entertaining the idea of what life would be like living there. When I found out that friends Monica Canilao, Harrison, Ben Wolf, and Swoon  had been invited to do a project with Power House Productions and Juxtapose magazine, it was the perfect opportunity to get down there and check it out for myself. $100 House ABC News

The photos of the remnants of abandoned buildings of Detroit city remind me of the desolate scapes of Chernobyl, beautiful decay and silence. Detroit seen here through the eyes of french photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre who will be publishing this and other images in their upcoming book entitled “The Ruins of Detroit” (December 2010)


Pictured above is the blue house which has now been named “The Treasure Nest” in a certain stage of progress. So free and magical, an almost utopic idea come to fruition, creating a living breathing artwork, social sculpture. I’m so excited to be a part of building this project, this house, this neighborhood, this city….. when I saw it my mind started racing and hasn’t stopped. Above photo taken by Todd Seelie. I’m sure you will be hearing more about this project as it develops and if you are interested in visiting Detroit and or joining this project please leave a comment!
