While photographing a crack on the wall a passerby approached Miguel Calderon and explained that it was the result of lightning striking the building. When he realized that this happened at a soon-to-be-demolished high school, the necessary equation between image and thought really made sense: the resemblance between the crack and a lightning bolt brought recurring images from his adolescence. A metal sculpture mirroring the image was installed on the wall, in order to create a public monument resembling a lightning bolt that lasted until the school was demolished. - M.C.
