Instagrams on Instagrams

I had pasted the Four Heads last week and Casey had mentioned that she was interested in getting something up as well. We were trying to think of what we could put up and then it became very obvious what we should do. Both Casey and I have been obsessed with instagram since we got our iPhones and have been snapping pictures of Philly and every other thing that we do for close to a year now, so we thought how awesome would it be to paste up all the images we have collected in the past year together and put them in one place. It was so awesome to see the many places and faces we’ve encountered over the past year blown up into 8″ squares and especially all together on an 8′ x 4′ panel in the streets. Tons of awesome friends, artists, galleries, logos, music venues, graffiti, skylines, bridges and City Hall photos made it in there.
We spent a day or two picking pictures that we thought were the best, cut them out and then laid them out in the most aesthetically pleasing way (and you’d be surprised how long that actually took.) All-in-all this was an awesome project that Casey and I got to experience together and it really brought both of our interests into one piece that was coherent and neat to look at. So if you see it while you’re out in about on Girard and Franklin (Fishtown/No. Libes) look for yourself and take an Instagram (META) of it because who knows how long it will stay up my other piece over by the Barbary is already painted over so it just goes to show nothing on the street is guaranteed to be there tomorrow. I hope you enjoy it and get to see it at one point or another, whether it’s on the street or up in the gallery afterwards.
