38,971 Pedestrians

Blake states “We don’t often interact with strangers while walking in public, so it’s hard for anyone to tell what anyone else is going through. Still, I’d bet that most people have been cheered up by a smile or a nod from someone we don’t know. I have.”

“Even a friendly glance can make you feel like you’re part of a community. All of the foreground pieces in this installation are hand-drawn in ink and a little paint on wood and paper, part of what I call my Pedestrian Series. They’re a tribute to all of us, just doing whatever we’re doing when we’re out in public, and acknowledging that we’re all in this together. Whether you’re feeling “on top of the world” or “down and out,” this one’s for you.”
