THE WALK this series of photos are taken on my walk from school to the bart station to my worksite. the project was inspired by Nigel Poor's "Observing Self: Collecting life's remnants" exhibitION.

These photos are taken during my walk from my school to my worksite. They are photos of objects thrown inside of BART station or outside of buildings on the sidewalk. These objects reflected how people interacting with our environment today. Some of the objects are recently thrown but some of them are old. I realized that people are not taking care of our environment. Randomly throwing their trash on the street is not only increasing the difficulty for those who work to keep our street clean but also.influencing how our city is presented to the rest of the world. People should also realize the impact of their actions.

"DO WE LOOK LIKE WE BELONG TO EACH OTHER?"
"WATCH OUT! DON'T STEP ON ME!"
"DEAR FALLEN LEAVES AND FLOWERS, I AM SORRY BUT I GUESS WE NEED TO STICK TOGETHER FOR THE REST OF OUR LIFE." -- PLASTIC
"HEY! CAN YOU BRING ME TO MY PLASTIC FRIENDS? I AM TRAPPED HERE!"
"FEEL SO WARM UNDER THE SUN IN THESE WINTER DAYS" -- "I AM EVAPORATING!"
