A couple of months before her untimely death last year Millie Niss sent me this video -

‘I have been working for a long time on and off (mostly off) these days on a video showing industrial ruins on the outskirts of Buffalo, shot from an elevated highway which is scheduled to be torn down…’

I remember thinking how beautiful and evocative it was and I assumed Millie would publish it on the Sporkworld Blog in due course. Sadly this never happened. The other day I came across it & asked Millie’s mother and collaborator, Martha Deed, for permission to post it here, which she gave, so it’s a pleasure tinged with sadness to do so.

We're going to take a summer break now. We'll be back on September 20th but in the meantime we'll leave you with this memorial to a fine artist & a fine human being.
