The Artorialist

Art: The blogging Experience

23 March 2009


This walking tour was not about me, but it was personal.

Using the images that I took over spring break of various shops, thrift stores and other buying places, I found coincidental groupings of images. I twisted the images into fitting into various personas -- the rich person living in Dupont Circle, the poor one in Columbia Heights, and the paranoid one near Galludet University. In the end though, everyone likes buying things.
