New York’s Ruins Include Wall at St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral – NYTimes.com.

The importance of the unintentional was brought home recently when I went to see “After Affects,” an exhibition organized by the New York Foundation for the Arts, featuring pieces by artists whose studios and homes were hit heavily by Hurricane Sandy. Instead of throwing out all their water-and-mud-damaged work, these artists kept some of it and declared the ruins completed works or made new pieces from them — not as mementos of their perseverance but as things made more interesting by entropy, chance and life.
