Alex Slade: Vacant Lot, 2004, Installation view (detail)

With Vacant Lot, a series of photographs of transitory spaces in the city of Los Angeles and throughout the United States, Alex Slade continued the exploration of mapping and topography evident throughout his work. The vacant lot is temporal real estate created by abandonment, loss, significance, and change. At first glance, Slade’s site selection appears devoid of content, yet upon closer inspection these locations are full of meaning, charting the ebb and flow of financial fortunes, shifts in population, and dynamic and ephemeral histories of neighborhoods. His subjects are entropic places reflecting the natural world, built environment, and human dramas in their chaotic slides towards disorder.
