I had another idea for a detoured image about gentrification after our class the other day. It didn’t turn out quite like I had hoped. I might try again and post the new version later. I was aiming for it to look like someone is spray painting the picture of the suburban family.

    This is cool. I like the idea a lot. You might be able to do that by getting a picture of a family that is more of an outline and overlaying it on the brick background and have the person spray painting the end of it or something. Maybe use a white picket fence? It has a lot of symbolism and implications in just one object.

  2. I like this idea a lot. Graffiti is often stigmatized and associated with the urban lower class, and I think this makes a strong statement, but I can’t really put my finger on it.
