In The Aesthetics of Decay, Dylan Trigg confronts the remnants from the fallout of post-industrialism and postmodernism. Through a considered analysis of memory, place, and nostalgia, Trigg argues that the decline of reason enables a critique of progress to emerge. In this ambitious work, Trigg aims to reassess the direction of progress by situating it in a spatial context. In doing so, he applies his critique of rationality to modern ruins. The derelict factory, abandoned asylum, and urban alleyway all become allies in Trigg's attack on a fixed image of temporality and progress. The Aesthetics of Decay offers a model of post-rational aesthetics in which spatial order is challenged by an affirmative ethics of ruin.

"Reader, remember this: if thy knowledge do not now affect thy heart, it will at last, with a witness, afflict thy heart; if it do not now endear Christ to thee, it will at last provoke Christ the more against thee; if it do not make all the things of Christ to be very precious in thy eyes, it will at last make thee the more vile in Christ's eyes." Thomas Brooks

An Enemy of the People by Henrick Ibsen
   "Dr. Stockmann exposes the hidden shames of the town's health resort when he discovers that the water supply is contaminated.His brother the mayor uses forces of democratic politics hypocritically against the doctor in his appeal to honesty and intergrity. The town's independent news paper, The. Herald together with it's runners cowardly and hypocritically connieve with the mayor to block yhe truth from leaking out to the public. The doctor's own townsfolk cruely turn aginst him, his job and his stay in the town is at stake including any one that supports his move, but he is more than determined to do the right thing for his society."
