“Inanimate objects coalesced with inorganic and organic growth. The cold harsh lighting I found in the near windowless Strickland and Fowler buildings contrasted with the warm glowing light coming through windows in the Old Bull building on a late winter day. Inexplicably the huge boilers of the Lucky Strike Powerhouse seemed alive, the light from an open doorway highlighting the coal chutes and rocker arms.   It was surprising to find a lone office chair sitting among debris and dirt facing an open doorway bathed in the light of the setting sun, as though anticipating the return of people to their work.”
