From age to age...the crash of ruin fitfully resounds.
William Wordsworth

In their inherent aesthetic, emotional or inquisitive appeal, the
vestiges of ruin and decay contain, for each of us, a certain level of
fascination. A ruin, whether it is architectural, human or
environmental, often triggers a stirring experience. These experiences
can include the recognition of the uncomfortable signs of mortality or
feelings of nostalgia. In its apparent familiarity, or unfamiliarity, a
ruin often causes one to feel some level of comfort or discomfort, as
one usually ends up confronting the nostalgia of what could have been
or has not yet happened.
