Description: Palimpsest asks the question, “What happens to human artifice after the fact?” The photo book documents the author’s archaeological investigations of abandoned sites in and around Berlin, casting Nature as a pivotal actor. Material Senescence borrows the term ‘senescence’ from biology to describe the ecological aging of architectural fabric. Text and photographs speculate upon the unpredictable braking down of materials in the built environment.
