Blank wall on Fremont near 17th is waiting for a mural.
FIELD NOTE: Something I thought about when in Twentynine Palms a year ago. Murals along the roadside, and those next to empty parcels with clear slight lines, shows how the brash horizontal image under a big sky is the fixed form of the desert. That’s a clear distinction to the painted walls in packed urban vertical space. Emptiness becomes monumental negative space that frames an image.
