Some art that stood out to me when walking around The Alameda recently.
I like this mural for several reasons. I especially appreciated how the open train car was a frame to the scenery. And then, I noticed the food in the train car and the fact that this food has chopsticks on it. That made me think a lot. The fact that it made me think a lot is what keeps me thinking about it. Why is it so interesting that there are chopsticks instead of a spoon, fork, or nothing? We have lots of restaurants here in which I use chopsticks and still this stands out to me when on this particular art scenery. Is this what the artist was trying to get me to think about? The artist was surely using chopsticks for a reason… And now, as with all interesting art, I am left to feel or think. And in this case, I am doing both. Excellent.
