Take a look at the pieces created by Buffalo artist Dennis Maher using materials salvaged from demolished buildings.
The Baltimore native came to Buffalo eight years ago and finds the city to be a very inspiring place, he said in an interview with Rust Wire.
“There are very few places where I could do the kind of work I’m doing here,” working with debris, Maher said.
When he first came to Buffalo, he worked on a demolition crew to earn extra income.
His interest in demolition has different aspects, he said: the physicality of it, the political aspect of it as a development strategy, and as a process of erasure.
Maher is a full-time faculty member in the department of architecture at the University at Buffalo, part of The State University of New York.
