Oh, Fremont. What can I say? This neighborhood is saturated with artful statements. I had a great time exploring and taking (too) many photos. Here area few of my favorites from the colorful Fremont neighborhood in Seattle:
It’s about time somebody fixed this sign. I, mean, the poor pedestrian guy has been “walking” around with no feet! Finally somebody “corrected” the situation.
Is it art? The one begs me to ask this question to myself. Ultimately, “art” is an attitude. It is about how you see what is around you, whether you see the magic or beauty of something; if something provokes thought. First, I fully speculate that this person doesn’t have a cell phone or computer and/ or is trying to communicate with someone who may not have a cell phone or computer. It wasn’t about making something artful, but it *was* creative. Creative communication (like the photo below) has been going on since caveman drawing. If I could have been a fly on the wall when the two met; I wonder if they found themselves surrounded by secret voyeurs? Nope, probably just me behind a newspaper being the weird one that I am.
Do you ever make verbal come-backs to street signs or other drivers? Did you ever want to retort or tell them a thing or two? …and did you happen to have a paint-pen handy? This person did.
