After what turned out to be a very mild winter, we checked in on Robert Andrade’s Ruined States, the site specific sculpture he created on station923’s west-facing lawn 2 summers ago. While the artist’s intention was for the piece to crack and become ruins, as you can see, it is still holding up astonishingly well, save for a bit of new cracking in a few of the middle panels. We think it looks better than ever, and we’re secretly thrilled we’ll have it in tact for at least another season.
Meanwhile, just a few feet away, where we were making some repairs to the fence, our resident woodchuck tried dragging our electrical cord into his den while we weren’t looking. Seems we’re not the only ones in the neighborhood trying to get an early start on our property maintenance.
