Site 44 - Changing Points of View

Home

The smokestack, once viewed as a technological marvel, after twenty years on the landscape served as a welcoming beacon of campus identity, and after being decommissioned in the 1980s took on the nostalgic role of an historic landmark. In this photo mural notice how the stack starts to blend into the background. How does one’s perspective on identity change due to the passage of time?

Notice in these two photos of the exact same location in the 1924 power plant how many changed and how many stayed the same.
