So ubiquitous they almost escape notice, the stuff of everyday streetscapes follows certain laws of man and nature alike. Pointing out the obvious, in this case, is far more unusual and surprising than noting more atypical or rare species.

Consider the behavior of benches, with their seasonal advertisements but otherwise relatively low-maintenance requirements versus the level of attention demanded by a “No Parking” or “Stop” sign.

Fire hydrants and mailboxes also have unique care instructions, conveying levals of authority but also communicating rhythms and patterns of certain kinds of traffic (postal or fire and rescue vehicles at regular or erratic intervals).

Carmichael Collective is an ongoing project from Carmichael Lynch, a creative company based in Minneapolis, MN. Everything you see here is just creativity for creativity’s sake. If you like it, share it. And if you want to see more, follow it. Or, don’t. It’s totally up to you. After all, art is in the eye of the beholder.”
