the new urban anthropology

on rainy days i like to sling paint onto things and call it art. sometimes people give me money for this. that’s kinda cool. when the sun shines i like to stand on street corners in crowded cities just so i can watch the people walking by. sometimes the people watch me back. that’s cool too. in this new modern age of a new world order where everyone everywhere is plugged in, hooked up and tethered to everyone else so every new anything can be reported as it’s recorded & posted in real time & in no time really at all. 

well equipped with the very technologies we need to document the revolutions or evolutions of the ever changing culture around us we are all participant observers of our own urban anthropologies.

like explorers or reporters with a story to tell some will use words to paint pictures of the world we live in but when you’ve got a snap shot aesthetic why bother with the limitations of verbiage when the language of vernacular photography speaks for itself.  this is my story…

Busking is the practice of performing in public places, for gratuities. There have been performances in public places for gratuities in every major culture in the world, dating back to antiquity. This art form was the most common means of employment for entertainers before the advent of recording and personal electronics. In the United States there has been a rebirth of this art form as the new millennium has started. The streets & subways of New York are evidence of this.
