Below are photos taken in the past few weeks of both orange lining fencing and stampings. I’ve posted photos of many of these installations before. In these photos you’ll see how the context has changed around the installations as development has gone forward and with the change of the seasons. It’s easier to see the installations on SE McLoughlin with the leaves off of the trees.
Above is the only new installation of printed fencing that I found on this trip. This is on SE 17th Ave, near SE Holgate. Here are a couple of poems that were edited in the field as needed by the contractors. The one on the left is “SOME HAVE EVOLVED TO COMMUTE UPRIGHT SMILING”, by Scot Siegel. The one on the right is from “A HIGH WATER MARK STILL RINGS THESE TREES”, by Tiel Aisha Ansari.
Looking south on SE McLoughlin Boulevard… You have to get up pretty early on a Sunday morning to see this road this quiet. It was but a moment’s respite, appreciated nonetheless. All of the photos of orange fencing coming up were taken along SE McLoughlin.
“EVEN NOW THE HEART IS FLOWERING A WILD PATIENCE”, written by Amy Schutzer. Stamp is on SW Lincoln just south of SW 1st Ave.Same as above with a little extra context, you can in the distance where the new flyover bridge is coming up to meet Lincoln.
