nine years later and the images of that day still evoke tears, the stories make you pause and the names of the victims read out loud on this day remind you of how fragile life is. Bing has always commemorated this day with stirring images on their home page. (see last year) Today is no different.

a part of the urban experience that i love is that art is everywhere. it appears in architecture, chalk drawings on the side walk, a t-shirt or even a brick wall. While I am glad that the nyc subway tagging is gone - i am glad that harlem offers me tons of inspiration that i bring to my digital work. sometimes i imagine placing minimal gui over the art to make it interactive. while i understand that graffiti is controversial - i find it inspiring. i can experience the passion of artists on the street. it is very much a part of the landscape of the neighborhood and reflective of the budding artist who thrive here.
enjoy a few of my favorites from around the world.
