Midden City: Urban Cityscapes Printed Directly onto Found Concrete Slabs

Inspired by site-specific frescoes painted directly into plaster, artist Simon Pyle has adapted a photographic pigment transfer technique to combine found structural material with photographs. Via his website, "Roman aqueducts, shell middens, and vintage neon on the highway strip: if cities have a collective memory, it's in their structures and in the cracks, liminal spaces where forgotten debris can filter in and unseen growth can take root. Along the way, phone poles are raised, concrete is poured, refuse accumulates. The cityscape and urban identity are a side effect of the density of life in a shared environment."
