Memorial for Victims of Energy and Mass

There is a hill behind the Art and Architecture building at the University of Michigan that offers a view of the hospital system and the busy Fuller St. which connects Central Campus to North Campus. Nettles, thorns, and lamb’s ears cover the hill, and chicken wire wound into cylindrical cages protects the saplings planted by the University groundskeepers. Near the top of the hill, there is a rusted chair made of steel tubing and steel lattice wire. The chair faces away from the massive buildings down the road. The chair looks like a makeshift throne (one that might give tetanus to anyone who sits on it). Vine-like branches, held up by long, crooked branches that fell from nearby trees, weave in and around the back of the chair, intertwining to form a sort of wreath or shield around it.
