People have been arsoning their houses to collect insurance. Artist Catie Newell, in collaboration with nonprofit Imagination Station, has embarked on a project called Salvaged Landscapes in which she collects burned and scrapped lumber from decimated neighborhoods and creates installations in uninhabitable buildings.
