Day 114

January 20, 2012

One of the flaming cacti commissioned by the city down near Astor Place.

Flaming Cactus transforms lampposts with fluorescent colored cable ties.   A play on function and formality, it creates something of beauty out of everyday items.  We wanted to show that making art doesn’t require a lot of resources, formal education, or even money.  Art and creativity are things we’re all capable of.


Day 108

Max’s 17th Birthday. We went shopping for our dinner and stopped to check out the bookseller on Broadway at 106th Street.
