Clark's creations: inspirational or strangely sad?

Boarded-up homes reclaimed by deed-devouring banks are an eyesore in any neighborhood, but artist Kathryn Clark has managed to turn the foreclosure phenomenon into a stunning textile statement.

The former urban planner, who says she created the "Foreclosure" quilt series to place this recurring economic problem into a more visual context, creates her somewhat depressing creations using neighborhood maps culled from the RealtyTrac database, determining foreclosure patterns in a particular city or region and leaving holes in the patchwork where recouped homes are located.

The result: a quirky quilt that beautifully highlights some of this country's most dismal civic data.
