The Gates Factory has an abundance of windows, which I find the most beautiful part of the factory, especially the northern buildings. Through chemicals, paint and time, many of the windows have oxidized or stained. They become even more vibrant by the rusting metal and the red brick. They tranform into pieces of art that change with the light. Each window containing it’s own unique beauty.

The other morning, there were cop cars surrounding the southern building and glass was shattered all over the parking lot. Someone had snuck in and smashed all the top floor windows. The following day they were all boarded up and will soon completely vanish after one last dance with the wrecking ball. They will never again change with the light.
