Urban decay

The last two days have been very fruitful in terms of urban decay. Yesterday, in Lyon, there were these fantastic two encounters: Bench accident Disappearance

And this the morning in Lausanne: YOUR OWN DECAY

Why do I blog this? why being passionate about this sort of things? about creeping infrastructures? simply because it reveals interesting aspects of how we behave. Sometimes it's even more explicit with signs that express how this our "own decay" (although I am not sure about it). Also, I am find important to think about the history of these things. Every week I take that street in Lyon and encounter this bench which obviously was in its last stage. Every week I see this man sign that is disappearing as Marty McFly's hands in back to the Future. And of course, it's about chaos.

What about urban computing and decay?
