The empty Pepsi and orange juice container side by side in the corner of the window being hit by the sun gives off the impression of two people out together, enjoying each others company. These containers are alone and undisturbed in the sunny afternoon. The small plant growing underneath the storm drain grate shows that even in an industrial place like downtown Brooklyn, nature can still survive and thrive in little nooks and crannies of the city, and finally, the bottle of Arizona and trip of plastic on the earthy brown subway tracks give of the feeling of two people laying on the earth, looking up at the sky, with nothing else but these two objects on the floor, alone, but not completely.

  1. I really love the way you described your artifacts! It’s as if you gave them all life even though not all were living.

  2. I like the way you describe their feeling and what might had happen to them before they end up at the place when they are now.
