Mapping: Cemetery

Maintenance of Decay and Decay of Maintenance

Cemeteries are a means by which we attempt to reserve and eternalize a natural process of decay. Our bodies, which should normally dissolve back into the nondescript, are forever marked and live on in the form of headstones and rock art. These images, photographed at the Oberlin Cemetery, take this tradition and map what happens when this maintenance itself begins to fall apart. Documenting the displaced headstones and decrepit maintenance houses, these images attempt to maps the intermingling of two contradicting processes.
