Trash Tuesday #21: Where Getting it Cheap is Part of the Esthetic

by Pasadena Adjacent


I’ve been known at times to take a pass on trash. This cartoon corpse might have once been an octopus. We discovered it on a commercial housing track located off of E street in Lancaster California.  This landscape of quickey homes was where the Llano del Rio Colony, a socialist utopian community established in 1914, first laid tracks. It’s most famouse member being mid century architect Gregory Ain whose creations are coveted in the community of Mar Vista which happens to be a long ways from here.


According to the tall guy I’ve got a little Sergei Eisenstein action going on here. Notice the figures stepping out of the frame?
