I recently came across this photograph of myself observing graffiti at an I-35 underpass in West Duluth, probably from 1997 or 1998. So I went back and rephotographed the spot to show how the graffiti has changed.
The experience inspired my column in this week’s Transistor (which later became a Saturday Essay on PDD). It also made me think that it might be a fun art project to photograph one of the bare concrete walls when the I-35 reconstruction is completed and return to photograph it whenever new graffiti shows up, then string them together ten years later for a little video. Of course, I’m not actually going to do that — it’s just an idea.
