What is a relic? It seems some things are treated as relics when they should not be – community, the arts and humanities, education – and others should be relics but are tolerated and even clung to – race and gender alienation, homelessness, gun violence, rampant mass consumerism…

Considering the photo challenge of ‘relic’ gave me pause to think. Adopting a broad sense of the term relic, what kind of relics are we creating and leaving behind? environmental relics, social relics, religious relics, consumer relics, urban and suburban relics…

Are we really satisfied?
