Sculptor explores decline and decay of suburban Detroit

One person’s trash is certainly another person’s treasure.

Or in this case, an artist’s sculpture.

Sandra Osip is a Brooklyn-based artist with a liking for creating sculptures and installations with deep meanings. This time she’s tackling the decline and decay of suburban Detroit in her series called, “Broken Dreams”.

The sculptures are of piled up houses reminiscent of the ones she came across as a child roaming the streets. Osip, citing nostalgia and her childhood as inspiration says, “this is now an empty wasteland and overgrown by nature. The day after my visit the news reported that a block away from where I lived they found two decomposing bodies.” Check out some of the sculptures below and visit her website for more “Broken Dreams”.
