Commuting in New Brunswick, NJ

New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA is home of Rutgers University; many many large pharmaceutical companies, and me. This is a collection of photos taken with my cell phone and digital camera during my commute to and from woork via train and cabs while my license was suspended for 4 months (October 2007 - February 2008)

Sorry, no pictures of Rutgers, many many large pharmaceutical companies, or me. Maybe next time.

Thank you!

minimalism on the streets!****************

“Anyone can make a monochrome. Most of us probably have made one at some time or another, although we wouldn’t necessarily have recognised it. And we wouldn’t necessarily need to have made one, as most of the time we are already surrounded by ready-made monochromes of various shapes and sizes. The world is full of unintended, sometimes accidental, often temporary, and mostly unnoticed monochromes…Every city is a museum of the inadvertent monochrome”
David Batchelor, In bed with the monochrome.
From an Aesthetic point of view, Philosophy, Art and the Senses.
Edited by Peter Osborne. Serpent’s Tail, 2000

Send me a photo of found, ready-made monochrome from your city, town or village, along with details or where and when you found it plus any miscellaneous details you think are interesting. It could be an unused, painted over or papered over billboard or sign, side of a truck, fence round a construction site, side of a building, anything, any colour. The only rule is that you can’t have made it yourself.

Hello All!
New here, found community and have decided to post a couple of photos of London. My favourite part of the city has to be the parks. It's strange how I take much more time to notice beautiful things in other cities when I'm just visiting them, so have resolved to pay a little more attention to my city (not just because I'm moving soon)

new here & a new project

Hi, i just joined this community. I am an artist living in England and i am making a new project and i need artists/creative people to participate. Here is more info...

****summary: I LOVE MY CITY: urban identites.

We all have a personal identity with the city in which we live in or near too, weather its a favourite building, street or landmark, personal or unique experience, memory or event, or it's just that we have a love of where we grew up and each individual as their own social history with their home city.

To investigate this further I am calling for people to send me a personal visual representation of their home city in any medium through the post. This could include:
Found object
List of words
.....anything goes, any medium.

Each item that is sent to me will appear in an exhibition in February 2007 in Salford, England. Each persons name and location will appear next to the sent work.

If you would like to take part in this project by sending me an item please e-mail artyrach@hotmail.com for my postal address.
If you would like to send an item that you think will cost a lot to send i can pay you back for the postage once the item has arrived.

Thank you and i hope to hear from you.


Last weekend I went to the beach with some teammates, it was still pretty warm. I guess that's Southern California for you. These were taken during different parts of the day, so that's why some of the pictures are really bright while the others are not. I've tried more or less to put them in chronological order.
