Tate Street Strip/Front

I consider Tate St to be a main strip along campus. It is a border, and therefore could also be considered a front. This picture shows the church tower opposite a mimicking tower on the other side of the road. The other direction contains all of the shops and restaurants people can go to, but the direction the image is facing is towards Lee St and the outside of campus. It shows the school on one side and the rest of the town on the other. This front is where the two locations meet and things are ever-changing. People and vehicles are constantly coming and going. It is a border area that marks the domain of UNCG.

  1. the notion of a mediating boundary between university and community makes a lot of sense as a front, according to clay's orientation to the term. your annotation of this entry is a great example of what i have in mind, both describing the scene and then also interpreting the visual evidence before us.
