Urban Burial Mound

A site-specific earthwork, Urban Burial Mound, reuses the remains from the demolition of condemned buildings. In the same location where these buildings once stood, a mound is plowed and isolated. The surrounding lot, implanted with the reality of urban death and renewal, is then landscaped.
