There is a quality in the most basic surroundings of an industrial society that is worth registering, despite or precisely because of its mundanity. Whether an array of lampposts, the surfaces we walk and work on, the facades of neighborhood, school, or commercial buildings, the ordinary possesses the capacity to transcend itself. I want to see, and others to know, that the setting we all share is more than it seems, especially in those places and times when it appears to be much less than what it should.
