I spent way too long deciding what to do for this project. My first reaction was graffiti lettering, but I'm unsure if I actually want to do graffiti or if I just like it.
Anyway, I decided to do some street art. I follow some badass street artists on instagram (recently obsessed with hotxtea) and decided to just make something and put it on a wall.
JP's beat over the original lungs piece definitely reminded me of a heartbeat over the sound of breath. I pretty much only hear my heart/lungs when i'm dying at the end of a run, and my heart is like "no stop i'm weak heh heh." This is a self portrait of me plodding along. The city-scape in the background is based off of the sound cloud visualization of Lungs Reimagined (I know this is a cliche I know)
Definitely learned some things about wheatpasting glue (sift the flour) and application (don't dip brush in dirt) but am super excited about my first **public art piece**
Note: I went back a few weeks later and they had painted over it! Damn you greenway maintanance crew!
