When you look at this box from a specific point and distance, its perspective lines will match the background, providing a glimpse into an alternative reality.
Behind the box, you see the intersection of Church Street and Duboce in San Francisco, with my own Duboce Bikeway Mural to the left.
The demolished mega-supermarket replaced with a farmer's market, with the Duboce Bikeway mural wall still propped up, are details taken from Chris Carlsson's utopian novel "After the Deluge."
Less than a year after I painted it, this piece was removed by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (the same entity who commissioned the work) and replaced with a normal grey box. This was necessary due to repair and maintenance needs. It was subsequently rescued from scrap, and has found a new home in an out-of-visual-context but much lovelier place: the urban farm collective called The Alemany Farm.
