'To Let or Not to Let'
The landscapes of Irish towns has changed dramatically in the past 4 years. Where streets were once dotted with new units, they are now blighted by emptiness. The To let sign is common in shop windows today. Some units do not have a sign, and it seems that, if one looks closely enough, you can see that each shop front has a face. These faces express the emotions of the people, who used to frequent these businesses. They are sad and forlorn. Viewing them in this context, they appear like the people who have lost, and may never again regain their purpose. They are forever, To let.
