Ms Graves, I am a former grave digger, prom king and sergeant of Marines. I discovered truly hot by falling into the campfire at age 4 and have been to Winlock, Wa. to see the world’s largest egg. Currently I’m an eastside parks maintenance worker and Artist’s Trust Edge graduate who is pasting 20 photographs from a new body of work to the wall in Post Alley below the pig. I am pleased to invite you to view them on 1st Thursday, August 7 or whenever you’re at the market. Thank you, Daniel Kencke
These photographs “of the daily commute,” together titled Pedestrian will be on the poster wall on Post Alley below the Pike Place Market pig “until all images are torn/weathered off, posted over or otherwise assimilated.”
A tiny book of them the artist sent me includes several alluringly blurry prints shot from down low, with these poignant and to-the-point explanations in the front of the book:
Tech: 2-5 second exposure, a loosely aimed camera at waist level, inspired by John Waters movie “Pecker”
Impression: personal interactions mostly with cellphone and ipod, very little eye contact, no spontaneous conversation, determined movement and agenda; sad, lonely
I say go.
