INCLUDING EXCERPTS FROM THE OAKTOWN PROJECT
OAKTOWN is a multiyear survey of the visual environment in transition or emergence, as generated by Oaklanders. Its scope ranges from expressive public or commercial ruins to cultivated private and personal grounds, and from the intentionally avoided to the indifferently unnoticed. It favors the vernacular and rejects the judgmental.
In an ongoing re-envisioning of Oakland, Ryder appropriates the
aesthetics of ephemeral landscapes to create unique images
of sites before they are gone.
