I'm interested in cities and the vestiges of their former selves. Urban renewal and its excesses. The symbolism of the pavement. Everyday surprises. Local life. Museums and mannequins. Writing. Hoarding. Birding. And family, always family. I walk with difficulty in the streets and back lanes of suburbia. I take photographs ordinary things, odd things, and marks on the pavement. I always notice the presence of birds. You could say that I listen up while I'm looking down. I am part of the Urban Research Program at Western Sydney University and I write for different kinds of publication. My blog Pavement Graffiti and Other Urban Exhibits is at www.meganix.net/pavement or search 'pavement graffiti'.
