baby killer house

Leigh Viande's photographs taken inside a long-abandoned home in Baltimore.... the neighborhood story is that the woman who lived here killed her toddler.

The house is filled with years of creepy graffititi; not art or tagging, just vengeful stuff about children and murder.

This is interesting to post after the Buchel/massMoca posts... something real, not hyper-real... not precious, strategic, or manufactured...

also in that this non-sanctioned "installation" shares a sense of mystery... we see the result, but are unsure about exactly what has happened.
