Richey Piiparinen comments on the artistic movement to use the abandoned landscapes of the Midwest:
"Art has always done this: used image to push passed just-reason to ignite a paradigm switch. And vacancy art is perfect in this regard because it exists as both the actual effect of a broken system as well as the medium used to confront the illusion that the said system isn't broke."
