Dutch artist Diederick Kraaijeveld went to Detroit Michigan to salvage wood from the many many abandoned buildings there. With the colored wood the artist builds monumental icons….in this case three ´Icons of Hope´ for a city in despair. See Kraaijeveld and his guide, urban explorer Dan, salvage wood from the abandoned Fisher Body Plant, the Lee Plaza Hotel and the Highland Police Station, to name a few.
