Mixed media artist Andrew Salomone has created this abandoned gingerbread house to get into the real spirit of the season. Nothing says Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa quite like gingerbread homes, but with the way that the economy’s been going, who can afford one? The subprime lending crisis has destroyed the gingerbread housing market, and the gingerbread construction industry has ground to a halt. Andrew Salmone commemorates this difficult time with gingerbread houses resembling the incomplete building projects seen in his native Ireland. They’d be adorable if they weren’t indicative of the fact that falling interest rates have failed to stimulate icing spending.
