The Future is Now, Forget the Past, Liverpool

Robin Whalley

Oldham, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

I have a passion for decaying architecture. I love the aging process which creates a beauty all of its own. The paradox of a derelict cinema called the Futurist in the centre of a busy city where new buildings are springing up all around. Why do we let the most wonderful buildings fall into ruin whilst spending fortunes to build new structures? I hope you appreciate this.

The Futurist sign here has now been covered up by a white board with a painted red sign. At least it still says “Futurist” even if it does look terrible.
