Why so fascinating?

      3 Comments on Why so fascinating?

I’m not really sure why the sight of a half demolished house is so fascinating.

 

Maybe it reminds us of unfinished business.

Or the promise of what will be. What wonderful structure will take its place.

Or it could simply be that a half destroyed house sparks our imagination. Allows us to see that big yellow machine licking its jagged lips in preparation for the next crunchy bite.

I’m not sure why the sight of a half demolished house is so fascinating. It just is.

    Good question. I'm thinking maybe half demolished homes are like car wrecks. You know you shouldn't find them fascinating, but you just can't turn away either.

    Maybe people find homes, or any buildings being demolished fascinating because it's a brush with chaos. A moment when their orderly lives, with a place for everything, and everything in its place, is confronted by willful destruction, disarray and chaos that's somehow captivating.
