San Francisco-based artists Jennifer Starkweather and Amanda Hughen are working on a new collaborative project and they are soliciting volunteer photographers. The pair recently created their Market Street series, which was installed on kiosks along the SF thoroughfare. The pieces tracked Bay Area infrastructure data, such as trees, bike racks, commuters, in gouache and ink.
The current project focuses on transportation patterns at six specific airports around the country. The resulting prints will be part of an exhibition at Electric Works in San Francisco this winter.
If you are traveling to Miami, Chicago: O'Hare, Oakland, New York: JFK, or LAX airports this summer, they would love you to snap a photo of a parking garage or parking garage signage from each of these airports.
Pretty simple and, given the richness of the prints in their last project, it will surely pay off in good art.
We don't need a GOOD photo, we just need some basic information about parking garage colors in these airports (which is surprisingly difficult to obtain online or through airport public relations departments). It would involve only one simple photo of a parking garage color, whatever is most convenient for the traveler. Of course, if you are up for the challenge, the more information we can get the better. The photos can be digital, print, or even cell phone.
