kevin HIRTH: Over the city of Richmond, Virginia a history of conflict and of accomplishment hangs. It is a city of firsts and of lasts; it is a city of ruins and of monuments. It is in this context that we encounter the unknown object. It is both on the margins and at the center. It is on the highest hill, straddling the lowest valley. It is found embedded on its forgotten and shabby site between a trio of emblems of the varied stages of the city’s history: an early plantation home converted into a convent, the church in which Patrick Henry gave the speech that inflamed the fledgling colonies of the American south to revolution, and a spare concrete radio tower designed by Philip Johnson at the height of the modern era.
